**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**

This summer while at BlogHer in San Diego, I was briefly introduced to Growums Garden Kits for Kids. It’s such a clever product, one that parents (teachers, etc) can use to combine learning and fun both online and off.
The concept is simple……..to teach children how to grow vegetables and herbs from seed to harvest. As a parent I love that, and know that it will encourage my daughter to eat even more vegetables than she already does. What parent couldn’t use a little help in that department? 🙂 I’ve tried getting my daughter to help prepare foods in order to encourage her to try new things, but this Growums program takes it a step further.
Each Growums Garden Kit comes with everything you need to start growing your own vegetables and herbs.
- Package of seeds (varies by kit)
- Coco pellets
- Plant tags
For example, the Salad Garden Kit comes with 1 package each of romaine lettuce, carrot, cucumber, and roma tomato seeds; 8 Coco pellets; 8 plant tags (2 per plant); easy to read directions. Yes, seeds for everything you need to make a salad in the kitchen!
Growums Garden Kits come in many varieties:
- Taco Garden Kit
- Herb Garden Kit
- Salad Garden Kit
- Ratatouille Garden Kit
- Pizza Garden Kit
- Stir Fry Garden Kit
You’ll find seeds for all sorts of veggies and herbs……..from carrots and eggplant to jalepenos!
I received the Ratatouille Garden Kit which contained 1 package each of eggplant, tomato, bell pepper, and zucchini seeds! I love how it contained veggies that my daughter loves and one she had never tried before, Eggplant.
Growums is more than just a Garden Kit though. The herbs and vegetables are characters, which make it extra fun for your kids. There are games too, which I had a bit of fun playing myself, like “So, you think you can grow a garden”! Before you begin your garden, you register online.
As the childrens real gardens grow, so will the Growums virtual world. It’s easy for kids to enter this enchanted land, where their vegetables come to life for both fun and learning
Here’s an example of our friend Eggbert the eggplant. The kids learn that he’s round, shiny and purple on the outside, and white and spongy inside. Other facts online show the kids that he’s full of fiber and other great nutrients that can help you fight certain diseases.
“I may not be the most common vegetable found at home, but if you grow me in the Growums Ratatouille Garden, you’ll see how nifty I am. I’ll bring you star-shaped, lavender flowers with yellow centers – but don’t pick them! Those flowers will turn into delicious eggplants for you to use in ratatouille, eggplant parmesan and other yummy meals!”
