Great supplies
Review by Ann W W.
All the supplies were great. My son just finished studying plants in school do he was very excited to plant the seeds. The clay did not stick very well to the pots. We decided to paint them instead. My son wanted to plant real seeds in the pots.

Garden
Review by Tammy H.
I loved the seeds and soil activity. The squash seeds never grew, but the bean seeds sprouted within a few days! I didn't like the flower pot activity. The molding clay did not hold up the pipe cleaner very well. Perhaps that foam that florists use or a piece of styrofoam would have been better.

Growing Kit

The seedling growing kit is amazing. We are currently out of our house as it is being remodeled and living in a non green space environment...this brought some natural feel to our temporary condo!

Watching seeds grow!
Review by Susan H.
Being able to watch the seeds grow every day. It would have been nice to have something else besides the clay to use to decorate the pots.

Planting seeds
Review by Chace H.
My daughter loved watering the dirt and planting the seeds. She also loved checking her plants every morning. The pots and clay didn't work so well. We had a hard time getting the clay to stick to the pots. We love the crates!

great for artistic little ones
Review by Allison E.
Our daughter is very artistic right now so decorating the flowerpots was a huge hit. She can't wait to have them dry! The seed planting (& hopefully growing) piece should be a great learning point IF she has the patience to wait for them to sprout. The seedling package/envelop was a bit too deep, even Dad had a time with getting the seeds into the moistened soil. Nearly impossible for little hands...

Grownup fun too
Review by Cara K.
My husband and I loved watching the progress just as much as our little ones did. love, love, love Kiwi Crate!!

just in time
Review by Carol W.
The entire crate was wonderful timing for our garden preparations this year. The window garden was super fun for my four year old, and the project with the pots was her favorite.

great
Review by Christine D.
It's the crate that has kept on giving! After we grew the beans and squash, we had enough soil left over to start some sunflower seeds he got at school.

liked the clay
Review by paige w.
I really liked the clay bricks and it was nice to have so much of it but it would have been nice if the packages were re-sealable, as we did not use it all in one setting.

Kept my daughter busy for 2 1/2 hours!
Review by Claudia B.
Kept my 4 yr old daughter busy for 2 1/2 hours! She loved the modeling clay material especially and made worms to 'live' in the pots with the flowers and vegetables. Can't think of anything - loved it! I know that you have it as 3 yrs and older, but my 2 yr old even enjoyed the plant pot project!

growing you own food!
Review by Sasha M.
Loved what it taught children- idea that they can grow thier own food, etc. Really peaked my kids curiosity and interest- basically, created a thirst for knowledge regarding gardening, etc.

Great
Review by Melissa R.
Love the idea of introducing gardening to my daughter at such an early age and incorporating the craft idea of designing the planter. Thought it was great

Everything you need
Review by Kylee C.
EVERYTHING you need was in there. The soil pellets are awesome! My 3 yr old was able to really help with putting together the whole window garden project. For the potted plants, I like that he was able to decorate his pot and then choose between veggies and flowers to "grow". We can even switch it up at a later time if we want. I had a hard time getting the pipe cleaners to stand up in the molding clay at the bottom of the pot. Maybe try something else down there?

love it
Review by Eric B.
my son enjoyed his garden project so much. everything about it - visually appealing, son loved the dropper, the bean is growing.
January 1, 2013
great balance of activities
Review by Elizabeth A.
I loved that there was one arts and crafts project and one real life experiment project. It was my favorite crate so far! Out two plants have now been planted into pots and are growing so big. My daughter loves to look at them every day and see if they need water. The only thing I would have added is something more to decorate the pots with (the arts and crafts project).

I liked the journal! Our squash seeds did not grow yet. We followed the directions exactly! A little disappointing!

Easy and exciting for the kids
Review by Jennie S.
The supplies were so well thought out. Easy instructions. Very manageable for a 3 year old. Lots of excitement when the seeds sprouted. Perhaps a few more seeds for each pouch.

our own flower pot
Review by Test T.

November 25, 2012
Loved the concept
Review by Maryjo L.
Loved the concept - paper art plants and real plants, great mix. however, the seeds haven't sprouted - and i've got them in the most optimal environment, for light and moisture levels. there in lies a good lesson for my daughter, we are going to try again with new seeds, so certainly not upset

Learning tool
Review by Katherine S.
It was a grat learning & fun tool for me and my 5 year old daughter to do over the course of a few days and we are still enjoying the plants growing! Perhaps a little more information on the plants itself would be nice.
