Mini greenhouse, bought (includes 6 tiny terra cotta pots, 6 magic soil pellets and 3 kind of herb seeds)


Plastic cups, soil & seeds


Have the kids plant the seeds and mist the soil with water.

Place each pot in the bottom of a clear cup. Mist the top inside of the top cup, place it on top of the one with the plant inside and taped them both together.

Write the name of each children on the cups (or have the children write their name themselves).

The children can take these home and put them in the window. They will not need to be re-watered until they're transplanted, as soon as the plant begins to outgrow the greenhouse! Most of the seeds come up within a few days to a week.
