Great way to teach a multitude of skills
Disclosure: I received The Plant & Grow Set in exchange for my opinion. The Plant & Grow set is a great way to practice skills like listening, measuring, counting and even responsibilities. Each day the girls have to check their plants and remember to water them, which has been great for them. They are excited to eat what they harvest, so I am thinking we will plant some "less loved" veggies next time and watch how that encourages their eating habits, too! It is easy to use, easy to set up and easy to spend hours learning about your new little gardens! My girls have learned a lot in the short time we have had this set about plant care, the sciences behind it and measuring!

Big Science for Little Hands
I love that this set came with activity cards for several reasons. First it helped me out so I didn't have to come up with my own ideas. Second, it helped to teach my son about reading and following instructions. Also the cards tell you the key concept the child will be learning. My son went through the activity cards and found one that he would like to do. He decided he wanted to do the Pop for Plants! The card shows pictures of the tools you need which I love because my son was able to look at them and gather the tools by himself. I helped him with the rest of the instructions and he was so excited to watch his popcorn kernels grown. The great thing about the activity cards is that they have questions to help your little scientists to really observe and learn. So I was able to ask my son questions such as "Which parts do you think are the roots?" and they even include the answers so in case you don't know the answer yourself. My son was able to learn the key concept for the Pop for Plants! experiment, which was "with water and sunlight, seeds can grow into plants". We have tried many other activity cards and have enjoyed all of them. When I had read the other reviews, I was disappointed that it didn't come with seeds and soil. Then when I actually got the kit and saw all the different activity cards, I realized this really wasn't like a planting kit, it was a science experiment kit. So there are many activities that don't require seeds or soil. There were many activities that I already had all the stuff for without making any extra trips to the store. This is a great way to teach science to little ones and is a lot of fun. **Disclosure: I received this product free of charge in order to do an honest review, but that in now way influenced my review. My thoughts are 100% my own and others may have a different opinion.**
Second Time Around
Very good product for inquisitive minds
What I love about this product is the fact that it comes with several different recommended experiments. This is SO much more than a little growing kit! It gives the parent some very easy and fun ideas for experiments to do with your child. Learning and quality time come together when using this kit! The only disappointment, and this will probably sound silly, but I was bummed to see that there wasn't a small packet of dirt included in the kit. I don't have easy access to soil, myself.
