Growing cress seeds is one of the simplest way to introduce the concept of growing from seed to young children.
This set is a fab upgrade from the old yogurt pot and gives an additional fun dimension to growing cress. The cress is set within a miniature magical garden and also contains three woodland characters that you can move around the scene.
The kit includes the magical garden scene, three woodland characters, a seed packet, a plastic tray and a sheet of blotting paper. So all you need to do is sow the seeds, keep in a sunny place sprinkle with water every other day. No glue or scissors required! The seeds grow fairly quickly and after about a week you should be able to taste your first cress.
It is recommended for children age 5+ but there is no reason why younger children cannot enjoy this kit with the supervision of an adult.
