Kids will enjoy starting their very own gardens when they open this fun-filled set. It features the book, Let's Start Gardening!, with instructions for starting 10 easy gardening projects. A second book titled Gardening Fun gives young gardeners four two-page spreads for them to make their own journal entries on potato planting, sunflower planting, magic bean planting, and squash planting. The book also offers ideas on giving plants for gifts and decorating planter pots, and presents several gardening experiments and activities for kids to try. The kit helps kids get started with these practical gardening items:
• A plastic trowel and two plastic garden pots
• Name labels for the garden projects
• Two magic beans to start a bean plant
• A pair of kid-size cotton gloves
The suggested projects focus on things kids can easily grow at home, including squash, potatoes, and wildflowers. They'll also find instructions for raising sunflowers, a variety of house plants, and other growing things.
