Hey Soil Sisters

Celebrate Earth Day with one of these three planting kits for kids.

Your oldest kid wants to be a fighter pilot. Your middle child is certain she'll be a famous actress. Your youngest has plans to become a dinosaur. You'll be happy if they just make it to adulthood in one piece. 

This Earth Day, focus on the future by teaching them about the planet they'll inherit and giving them the dirt on how plants grow with these fun container gardening kits...

Connor’s Kits for Kids Plant Pals
Teenage entrepreneur Connor Bernstein's science-kit biz features well-written experiment instructions that have us talking about things like germination and gravity with our 4-year-olds. Plus, all of the seeds are edible (wheatgrass, alfalfa, mung beans), so kids can taste what they grow.

Green Toys Planting Kit
The eco-friendly fun gurus get back to their roots (literally) with a plastic pot set made from recycled milk jugs, organic sunflower, basil and zinnia seeds, soil disks, and packaging also concocted from recycled and recyclable materials.

Growums Garden Kits
Themed garden kits like taco, pizza, ratatouille, stir-fry, herb, and salad are packed with tasty vegetable and herb seeds destined for the dinner table. Little hands just place the pellets into a pie dish (they expand when water is added), tag each plant, and in a few days they'll have seedlings ready for the garden.
