Rainy Day Garden
Gardening seems to be the rare activity that almost any kid will slow down to take part in, perhaps because the waiting – with all of the mysterious goings-on underground – can be every bit as gratifying as watching the first shoot pop up. The Rainy Day Garden offers kids their own micro-garden to plant where they please. These sweet ceramic boots come with peat plugs and a seed packet – add peat, add water (rain or tap), add seeds, and let your wee-ones get their green thumbs on. They come in four vibrant colors that match their accompanying seeds (RED=wild strawberry, YELLOW=chamomile, GREEN=mint, and BLUE=basil), and are compact enough to fit securely on most windowsills.
