This giveaway is now closed. Thanks so much for stopping by. The winner is Kristi. Congrats!
I have no idea what has triggered the Bailey’s green thumb, but ever since we moved into our home in October, we’ve been planting like crazy! The previous owner planted roses, a peach tree, and a lime tree, so my husband has been working hard to keep those alive and fruitful (hehe). We planted sunflowers, basil, and zinnias a few weeks ago and they’re already starting to bud. It is rewarding to take care of a plant and watch it grow.
Children have this natural affinity for the outdoors. They’re curious and expressive and have a desire to learn about life! Now that summer is here, you may be struggling for ideas to keep your children occupied. One of the things that I highly encourage is helping a child grow a garden. It teaches responsibility and the child gets real feedback on how well they’ve taken care of their garden. Plus…it’s fun!
Potting Shed Creations Kids! is the perfect way for a child to express themselves and design a personalized garden for their own enjoyment or as a gift for someone special. Crayons or paints (and a little creativity) are all that is need to make a work of art that reveals the simple beauty of childhood and gardening.
The kits are easy to use and kid-friendly. I like the fact that we didn’t need a pot and could plant the seeds right in the bag. It’s not messy and the seeds can be planted in about 5 to 10 minutes. The front of the bag has a picture that kids can color/decorate and make it their own. Just a note that crayons or markers are not included with the kit. According to the site, the sunflowers grow to be 1-2 feet tall and 10 inches across (wow!). Here is the best part: The seeds can be eaten and they’re certified organic (how cool is that?). I’ll definitely have to show you pictures as they sprout. They won’t bloom for 60-70 days so I’ll keep you updated towards the end of our series.
