Grow a Garden

Just add water and sunlight, along with dedication and imagination, to make the seeds sprout in these kids’ at-home gardening kits.

Vegetables on View

Produce a trio of veggies — a carrot, a radish and an onion — with the Miracle-Gro Kids Root Viewer, a clear planter that lets kids watch growth under the soil. Included fun facts explain what makes plants strong — and why onions make us cry. Ages 5 & up. $12.99. Available at Toys“R”Us, Walmart, A.C. Moore and Wegmans.

You could win a Root Viewer kit from MetroKids! Enter now to win! Contest open April 2-30, 2012.



Artful Planting

With the Crayola Pop Art Pixies Flower Garden, kids can decorate and doodle on three silver plastic pots, then plant flower seeds to create a customized colorful garden. Ages 8 & up. $14.99.


A Garden World

Build “mini worlds” as you grow plants inside DuneCraft’s Dome Terrariums. Set the scene of a sparkling butterfly garden, a tropical rainforest, even a planet from outer space, with themed plant markers and decals. Ages 3 & up. $24.99.
