My First Gardening Kit- Celebrate Earth Day!

How are you celebrating Earth day? The folks at Sesame Workshop got in touch with me and asked if we would be interested in reviewing their new gardening kit made specially for kids. Today was a good day to bring it out in celebration of Earth Day. This is an inexpensive kit found exclusively at Lowes. It comes with everything you need in to plant tomatoes. The little dirt pallets are pretty genius and the whole thing is set up so that the kids can do most if it solo. After the plants grow we'll transfer it to our garden plot. Enzo loves being out in our garden and we're lucky to have a little plot. If you live in a small space with no access to gardening plots this kit is a good solution.

I know I sound like a sales rep but I am actually a huge fan of the Sesame Workshop and their initiatives for healthy habits. They do an awesome job.

If you're looking for ways to talk to your kids about the Earth and how things grow the Nature Curriculum is a good place to start.

Happy Earth Day! StumbleUpon

Have you seen The Great Sunflower Project? If you want to work gardening, bees, and science lessons together for some fun summer activities you can do this, and contribute to a scientific database!
