As April showers lead to May flowers, Earth Month is a great time to start gardening with your kids. Dunecraft has a great beginning kit with their Eco Plant Pals.
Eco Plant Pals are a fun, environmentally-friendly garden starter kits for kids. Each plant pal comes with a biodegradable starter pot and lid made from corn resin, along with a potting soil mixture and seeds for the plant. The instructions are simple for kids--add water, plant the seeds, cover the pot, and wait for the plant to begin sprouting. Once the plant pal has sprouted, it can be transferred to an outdoor garden or larger pot.
Eco Plant Pals feature 18 styles of plants, focusing on varieties that pique the interest of children, from edible favorites to amazing exotics. Each Plant Pal comes with a name and biography--we currently have Basil Bob and Fly Trap Fred germinating on our window sill. Bob, Fred and the rest of the Eco Plant Pals come with a sticker and trading card explaining facts about their species.
For a little gardener, the Eco Plant Pals are a great starter garden, even for windowsill gardens. Eco Plant Pals retail for $2.99 each and are available at Dunecraft online, as well as various retail stores.
