The warm weather is here and it couldn’t be a better time to get your garden in order. Miracle Gro has introduced kids gardening sets from PeachTree Playthings and my girls love them! They make it really easy to introduce gardening concepts to your kids. My kids have always been interested in the growing process but mommy just doesn’t have a green thumb :)!
We had the opportunity to review the Miracle Gro Pixie Hollow Set. My girls love planting stuff and were really excited when this arrived. Not only could they plant the flowers, they could decorate it too!
The kit came fully equipped with everything we needed to put it together. It even had some fun facts about plants and vegetables and a chart to track the growth of your garden. Once you put everything together, you get the chart and mark the day you planted it. Then once you see it sprouting, you can chart the progress. This was one of my girls favorite parts!
The specially formulated Miracle Gro® Gro Mix is safe and non-toxic. It comes in a little package and all you do is put it in a bowl, add water and watch it grow. After it’s doubled in size, you distribute it evenly between your plants. Then you decorate and put it in a sunny area.
It only takes a few weeks for the kids to see their seed sprout to plants. Every morning we check the progress of our plant and see if it needs water. It’s really easy to notice when they need water because the soil turns light brown. It emphasizes that you don’t want to over water the plant, so the soil color changing makes it really easy to not mess up.
The kits are available in flowers, fruits and vegetables. You can purchase them at a store near you. The suggested retail price is $12.99 and they’re recommended for ages 5+.
Prize: One reader will win their choice of a Pixie Hollow Greenhouse, Princess Castle Greenhouse or a Root Viewer.
