    An ingenious way to get kids to start their own herb garden while using coloured pencils. Once their art has been hung, the garden can start. When the stub gets too low, you can plant the dissolvable end capsule containing herb and flower seeds. This pencil pictured is coloured green, but you can collect the set to get different colours and different herbs. Made from non-gmo seeds and either PEFC or FSC Certified hardwood.
