Hello Spirit Play Parents,
Your children learned about Seeds from a story called Seed In the Ground from a song by Connie Kaldor. Here are some questions to talk to your children about:
I wonder if you have ever seen or heard any of this before?
I wonder which part of this story is the most important?
I wonder which part you like the best?
I wonder where you might be in this story?
I wonder how it feels to plant a seed?
I wonder what happens to the new seed?
I wonder why the sun is important for the seed?
I wonder why the rain is important for the seed?
I wonder if all seeds grow?
I wonder what other kinds of plants come from seeds?
I wonder how a seed knows what to do?
I wonder if the Spirit of Love and Mystery, that some people call God, helps the seed togrow into a flower?
I wonder if you have ever felt yourself growing?
I wonder if this story reminds you of any of our other Unitarian Universalist Promises?
I wonder where the Spirit of Love and Mystery might be in this story?

Sunflower Houses: Inspiration From the Garden–A Book for Children and Their Grown-Ups by Sharon Lovejoy and Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots: Gardening Together with Children by the same authore
