Sesame Street Gardening Kits

Each kit comes complete with shovel, spade, and rake-- explaining the difference in each tool. You're also provided with soil, planters pots, stickers, stakes, and seeds. Check out how simple it is to grow wonderful plants while living in the city.

Having a little helper can make gardening extra fun, but most tools used for planting aren't made for little hands. Luckily Sesame Street has come up with several character-themed kits that come with everything you need to grow a full garden. Elmo's garden bag includes Sunflower seeds, Garden Beans, and Tomatoes.

First, you soak a soil pellet in some water. Then you place the softened soil into the planters pot-- pop in 3 seeds of your choice and make sure it gets some sun.
