Plant Me Pets are great for teaching Kids How to Garden
The Plant Me Pet is so cute! It stands on its own two feet and just looks at me with a smile! The big decision I have to make is whether to stick this nutrient filled, bio-degradable, mini garden plant me pet in the ground or in a pot and let it grow, or just place it on a shelf or table top and look at it. What is so neat is that the Plant Me Pet comes in three different garden varieties and of course three different colors: green plant me pet for melon seed; orange plant me pet for pumpkin seed; and red plant me pet for tomato seed.
Designed by Marti Guixe and made in Spain, the Plant Me Pet is made of bio-degradable latex and is filled with nutrients to help the vegetable seed grow once placed in a pot of soil. Simply start off with a 4" or 6" round pot filled with growing medium like peat and stick the Plant Me Pet upside down into the soil. Add some water. It's best to gather some kids around you to help boost the level of anticipation as you wait patiently for the seeds to germinate and your mini garden to start growing!
The Plant Me Pet mini garden is ideal for your Boy Scout or Girl Scout Troops because of its simplicity. Leaders can focus on the lesson at hand and the instruction regarding plant germination and watering since the Plant Me Pet can simply be placed upside down and in the ground or pot. Teach kids how to garden and all about horticulture by explaining the fundamentals of fertilization and the various stages of seed germination. A metaphorical application of plant growth can be shared by your office sales team as a fun way of motivating your group. Over time and with hard work your teammates can then enjoy the fruits of their labor with a garden plant bearing melon, tomatoes and pumpkins!
Make it a great day in the garden!
