Mud pies may be a childhood favorite, but really they're not much more than a mess. But combine earthy ingredients, water, and some sweet, retro styling, and you get a creative, educational project that parents and children can share.
Taking its cue from 50s-era kitchens, this kit will have your delighted little ones whipping up a batch of "seed cookies". Junior bakers will enjoy mixing up the ingredients--organic soil and organic clay packaged in reusable cloth pouches, and a packet of seeds--rolling the dough on the gingham-print, vinyl mat, and cutting out tiny shapes with the cookie cutters. The easy, step-by-step instructions are printed out on a recipe card. Rather than baking them, simply leave the cookies out to dry overnight. These treats aren't too tasty, but plant them in a garden, and soon they'll sprout flowers that will provide the sweet nectar preferred by butterflies and hummingbirds. Kit comes with: plant recipe cards, clay, soil, muslin bags, oil cloth, (all Made in USA), cookie cutters and rolling pin (Made in China). Kit assembled by adults with developmental disabilities in Eugene, OR.
