Plant an Avocado {and giveaway!}

I was just sent a fun kids cooking magazine in the mail.  It’s called Chop Chop Magazine.  They had in this Fall 2010 issue a tutorial on growing an avocado plant.  I wanted to share it in honor of my love for Avocado’s!  You and your kids could start a plant right away!  What better way for your kids to connect with their food?

All you do is

  • get an avocado pit
  • Secure it so it hangs in water.
  • Put in the light.
  • You’ll have it sprout in 3-6 weeks!
  • More details are on the image.

I’m a self proclaimed magazine junkie.  So when I saw this one for kids and cooking, I was thrilled.  It’s filled with recipes, activities and tips on eating better and getting your kids in the kitchen.

Contact info for Chop Chop:
