Grow Your Own Peanuts

Got a peanut butter addict in the house? If she's patient, she can grow her own! This kit comes with everything a kid needs to get started: seeds, planting mixture, and a simple plastic "sprouting house" that sits on a sunny windowsill. Once the seeds sprout and the danger of frost is gone, transplant them outside, watch them flower, and in a few months, they're ready to harvest. Shell your peanuts, roast them in the oven, eat them outright, or grind them up for a homemade peanut butter sandwich. A cool and yummy way to talk about the life cycle. (Dunecraft, $9.75)
