Any ideas?  My son is in kindergarten.  We have until March 7th to get it done.

When my oldest son was in kindergarten, he made a "potato head" with grass for hair (grown inside one end of the potato).  It only takes a few days to grow the grass.  If you are allowed to help at all (you will have to cut off one end of a potato, unless your son can safely use a knife himself), he may enjoy doing this.

Thanks. He goes to a charter homeschool so I'm definitely allowed to help him. It's not even required by his current teacher but I hear his new one does insist on all of her kids doing it. I'm just doing it because he will love it.

1. Do potatoes sprout faster in the dark or in the light?
2. Does ice melt faster in a styrofoam, paper, or plastic cup?
3. Make bubble solution and test various objects to see which one make the best wand...slotted spoon or spatula, whisk, pipe cleaner, etc.
4. What type of paper makes the best paper airplane? Make the same size and shape planes with copy paper, construction paper, newspaper, etc.
