Go Green with The Gigglin' Garden Gang #GoGreenNGiggle #CBias

I recently was lucky enough to receive a Go Green and Giggle Garden Activity Set to review. This cute set comes with a book, music and everything your child (recommended for ages 3 to 8) needs to grow sunflower plants and to learn a little about gardening and going green.

I did a quick search online to learn more about the Gigglin' Garden Gang before we got started, and first searched "go green sunflower suzi" which got these search results for their Facebook page Sunflower Suzi and Friends and Twitter @GoGreenNGiggle:

So I "liked" and "followed" and the next Google search I tried was "go green and giggle" and the Go Green and Giggle website came right up:

The site is really fun and engaging, and introduces you to all the great Gigglin' Garden Gang folks:

All this made us even more ready to open the kit and get planting!

My daughter Kay, age 6, was all too happy to be my resident tester. We have our own garden, and while it yields mixed results, all the kids are junior gardeners.

Kay loved everything about the Greenhouse Kit ($20.95), from opening up the box it arrived in:

to modeling the cute bag all the goodies came packed inside of:

The kit comes with a grow kit of six pods (made from recycled plastic bottles) and six compact mini dirt "wafers." All you need to do is follow the enclosed directions to add water and the soil expands and is ready for the sunflower seeds to be planted.

Kay happily watered the soil wafers:

 and planted the sunflower seeds:

Now we just need to sit back, tell them some jokes, and watch our sunflowers grow.

While we were waiting for the just-planted seeds to come forth in their full sunflower glory Kay colored her Sunflower Suzi that came in the set.

Now, just to pass the next 2,894 hours...

Thank you to the Gigglin' Garden Gang for providing a Gigglin' Garden Activity Set for review - my daughter enjoyed reading the book, Go Green and Giggle! and loved getting to plant her own grow kit with the Gigglin' Garden Greenhouse.
