March 15, 2002, Newsletter Issue #67: Garden Kits!

Tip of the Week

To make the garden kits, I used a colored lunch bag (you could use brown lunch bags, and have the kids decorate them), and filled the bag with the supplies to make a *storybook garden*.

Supplies include:
Seeds, small pots (you could use terra cotta, peat pots or even the peat disks available!), a plant label (we use popsicle sticks), and the storybook of choice. You could also add any small garden items you can find (like stickers).

Themes can include:
Peter Piper (pepper seeds)
Mary, Mary, quite contrary (Wildflowers)
Jack and the Beanstalk (Pole Beans)
The Princess and the Pea (Sweet Peas)
Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater (Mini Pumpkins)
The Enormous Watermelon (Giant Watermelon)
