I just put up a post on The LeapFrog Community called Be Inspired to Learn About Trees on Arbor Day. If you aren’t up for running out to purchase a new tree for your backyard, take a look at the resources that I’m sharing including books to read, tree identification charts to download, and even an animated tutorial about how to identify trees!
So maybe you aren’t up for planting a tree today but I also included links to the new gardening products I learned about from Growums and MiracleGro Kids after attending yesterday’s unveiling of the Time to Play Most Spring 2011 Most Wanted List.
These specially designed container gardens for kids make it easy for parents with even the blackest thumbs to teach them about the growing process and might even inspire them to eat what they grow! MiracleGro Kids features specially formulated soil to help the seeds germinate in only 4 days (because we all know waiting for seeds to grow is hard!). I love the online component to Growums virtual world that extends the learning about plants to plant care and growth through activities that are designed by horticulturalists and reviewed by the company founder, Michael Ferraro whose family has been in the nursery and gardening industry for 3 generations!
