Spring is just about here and I have started planning some fun activities for Cindy. This season, I thought it would be really fun for Cindy and I to grow a plant or if I am feel adventurous a few plants. If you know one thing about me it's that I suck at trying to grow or maintain anything green. For this spring I was thinking of growing something easy like sprouts in a pot. I think it would be fun to water it everyday and see it grow over the weeks.
To help my lack of a green thumb, I am planning on using Expand ‘n Gro™ from Miracle Gro. It yields three times the amount of flowers and vegtables as oppose to the native soil, it expands up to three times when in water and feeds the plants for six months. You can see more about Expand n Gro and how it works by checking out this video.
If you have tiny tots, you can teach your kids what plants need in order to grow. Planting would also be a good way to talk about photosynthesis with the older kiddos. Since Cindy is so small we are only going to enjoy watching them grow.
So thinking of growing a garden or plants with your kids this spring? Be sure to check out Expand n' Grow in the lawn and garden area of retailers. For us who are overseas you can get it on Amazon! If you want to try just a small sample, Miracle Gro is sending me one and I would love to give you this little bag.
