Anything fairies, glitter, and magical is fine by my daughter. And for me, if I can combine a love of that, as well as something that helps to learn and have fun, then it is fine by me. Which is where My Fairy Kitchen Garden comes in. I had one super excited daughter that was looking forward to creating a kitchen garden, growing some seeds, and making it a special place for the fairy, Fenn.
You get the base, fencing, a little gate (so cute), a fairy, and a fairy house, with seeds. Then you can just get outside, get some soil, and get planting the seeds. Chloe has really enjoyed checking on the seeds, watering them (she has taken that responsibility very seriously), and enjoyed watching the pea shoots grow. She did plant two seeds from an orange, but I think it might be a while before those orange trees start to grow…
I think that the Fairy Kitchen Garden is great because it has opened up a conversation about where our food comes from, and has been a good way to show that we can grow our own food at home. It has helped Chloe to be more conscious about what is growing and she has checked on it daily. The fairy element is really magical too, as wanting to create a magical space for the fairy to live is all part and parcel of it. I loved that the little house was glittery, and we had the fairy watch over our seeds to take care of them; lots of fun.
Of course, having an outside space can be useful for this, but because of the size of the tray, it can easily sit on a windowsill or balcony, so you don’t need to have an outside space to be able to ‘grow your own;’ I think that is a great selling point as it can work for many different people, and shows that you can grow food that you can then eat, even with very little space.
Have you heard of My Fairy Kitchen Garden before? The range is quite large, and I like that they can be made as you want them, as you can add any little things that you have to them, as well as pebbles to make a little footpath, and so on. It is great that they can be washed and reused too, so once you’ve grown the pea shoots, you can get some more seeds and grow something else. And priced at only £8.99 I think they are a bit of a bargain and would be a great gift for friends too.
It would be great to hear what you think. Do you grow your own fruit or veggies at home? What do you think to the Fairy Kitchen Garden?
