Quirky, green stocking fillers for kids this Christmas {giveaway}

My boys were excited Little gardeners yesterday when we potted out our Mr Fothergill’s Mini Sunflowers in 1500mL pot and little Windowsill Pot  - Lolly Plant (Stevia).

It is a fun green activity that will keep the kids and their green thumbs busy . I just hope their thumbs are greener than mine and they leave the dirt outside.

The Windowsill Pot varieties include Lolly Plant (Stevia), which is a healthy alternative to sugar that is three hundred times sweeter, Lemonade Plant (Lemon Balm), Mini Strawberry (Alpine Strawberry) and Mini Tomato. There will make perfect stocking fillers -  at $3.95 each they are a bargain and come complete with soil pellet and seed - ready to go.

1500ml pots
It comes with Jiffy soil pellets, seeds and easy recipe ideas for kids such as strawberry jelly and frozen berry smoothies to teach children healthy living. The boys thought is was magic how when we added the water to the pellet - then the dirt grew inside the pot.

The Little Gardeners range also include the larger (1500mL) Grow & Create Pots. The boys loved  the brightly coloured [reusable] plant pot, and the sticker sheets for them to personalise their own mini garden in a pot. The external packaging is also an activity sheet with games, quizzes and colouring in.

Grow & Create products include Flower Power, with edible flowers like Pansies and Nasturtiums, Tickling Mimosa, an intriguing plant that responds to touch, Mini Sunflowers and Mini Tomato.

You will find these cool green kids’ products in the gardening aisles of Bunnings, Kmart and independent garden retailers .

I know they will be a great way to keep my boys occupied at home during the school holidays. We have ideas to plant more vegetables in our big 'recycled' tractor tyres. The electric fence is keeping the cows away now.

Gardening with kids of any age is a lot of  fun. Plus projects are an educational opportunity guaranteed to keep kids busy and learning about Mother Nature.
