Make Your Own Pizza Garden Kit

Make Your Own Pizza Garden Kit

If there is one thing we learned during quarantine, it is we need to be self efficient. Exactly a year ago we got chickens and that has been the best decision we have ever made. We have taught Franco how to care for them, how to collect eggs and how we cook the eggs. (I am better at homeschooling than I thought!)

Gardening is something I want to get better at and also teach Franco along the way. I decided to give our gardening activity a twist so we stay interested and have fun with it.

I created this pizza garden kit that includes seeds to grow our own pizza toppings, how could we lose interest in that!? To know that a homemade pizza is within our reach is worth the wait!

This pizza garden kit is great to gift someone as well, I am providing a free printable so you can create your own and give to someone who wants to learn how to garden (and loves pizza!).

Here is what you need to make your own pizza garden kit:

An empty egg carton, I used a four pack, but you can up to a dozen based on which seeds you want to plant.

Potting soil

Used coffee grinds

Garden labels printable

Tooth picks for the garden labels

Gardening seeds (green onion, oregano, basil, parsley, pepper, tomato, mushrooms, thyme, sage, cherry tomatoes, shallots, and rosemary) save packets so you know how long each plant needs to germinate for.

Fill holes of egg carton with some gardening soil, place seeds in and add more soil. Top with coffee grinds and pat down. 

Cut out garden labels and tape each one to a toothpick. Place label in each prepared soil.

Water garden and let each plant germinate according to package directions for each seed. When it is time, bring them outside to continue growing. 

By the end of the season, you will have everything you need to make a delicious pizza! Stay tuned for a delicious pizza dough recipe to make the ultimate homemade pizza.

Food Dye Macaroni Plus Free Printable

Food Dye Macaroni Plus Free Printable

Macaroni is one of the basic food groups in our house but when you can play with it, it makes things 10 times better!

I always had thing with sensory bins because I had fear of all the mess it would make but after months of quarantine I let things go.

Macaroni has such fun shapes and when you find unique ones at this Dollar Tree you gotta act fast because you never know when you will see them again!

I grabbed some food dye as well at Dollar Tree and decided to make a bunch of colored macaroni for a fun activity.

If you can’t find these at your local Dollar Tree you can snag these materials here!

I separated the shapes and put them each in a small container. I added about 4 drops of each color and a tablespoon of alcohol.

I closed the lid and had Franco shake it up until all a macaroni was covered in dye.

We laid them all out on a paper towel and let them dry, about 15 minutes.

I created this rainbow printable just in time for St. Patrick’s day and we used the macaroni to create a colorful rainbow.

We go through so much slime and Playdough in our house that I am better off making our own.

I enjoy making our own Playdough because they are so many different variations on how to make it. I have recipes for cook and non cook, cloud, scented and more.

Today I am sharing how to make edible Playdough! it’s soft and sweet your little one will be licking their fingers the entire time. The best part is that it only requires two ingredients!

All you need is

  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 cup of white vanilla frosting

This is optional, but you can add food coloring and sprinkles as well.

Mix sugar and frosting together preferably with a mixer. Once mixed knead with your hands and add food coloring and sprinkles if you prefer.

You will have pillowy soft Playdough that tastes great! No more worries of what your kid may ingest when eating playdough.

I made this sensory tray with a bunch of treats from Dollar Tree to go along with the Playdough! What do you think?
