Jack and the Beanstalk


  1. LOVE this idea!!! Do you have a template for the castle and cloud that you used? Can any bean be used for this or do you recommend the kind that you used?


    • No, I don’t. We just drew one and then traced it for the rest. I assume you can use any bean. These work well as they grow quite quickly.

    • I leave mine indoors but near a window and they grow well there. If you have a windowsill to put them on that’s probably the best spot. Otherwise just an hour or two outside will help. Just make sure you don’t overwater if they are indoors as they will go mouldy.

  2. Hi there!
    Any idea if these will grow indoors in winter? I will ask at the garden centre too but hoping someone may have tried it 🙂

  3. So excited to do this with my pre schoolers, but I’m not exactly sure where to purchase broad been seeds… Can you help me out? Haha

    • I bought mine at Coles – the local grocery store. I’m in Australia and here we can buy them at hardware stores, some grocery stores and nurseries. Looks like they are called Fava beans in the US. You can buy them here in the US: They also have them on Amazon. I have also used runner bean seeds.
