Giveaway — Kids Gardening Prize Pack

A big thank you to for sponsoring this fun giveaway! If you’re not already familiar with CSNStores, they are made up of more than 200 online stores and sell everything from kitchen appliances to swing sets for kids. They have an amazing selection, and are well-known for their good customer service!

Lately our days have been spent browsing seed catalogs and daydreaming about our future garden, so I thought it would be fun to put together a themed prize package. One lucky Frugal Family Fun Blog reader will win a fantastic kids gardening prize pack courtesy of CSNStores!

Prize pack includes a Sassafras Kid’s Deluxe Gardener in Training Kit (photo below) including an apron, two pots, gardening gloves, 3 gardening tools, sprayer, and gardening bag…. Yay!! But wait! That’s not all….

With St.Patrick’s Day coming up, you might want to plant some of these Auld Sod Official Irish Shamrock Seeds for extra good luck! Wait… there’s more!!

And I thought maybe the kiddos would want a place to relax a bit after they’re done planting all those seeds, so how about a Super-Duper 4 Kid Play Tent by Pacific Play Tents?

Isn’t this a super-fun prize pack? To enter for your chance to win, leave a comment on this post. Feel free to tweet/blog/facebook about this giveaway for extra entries, just be sure to come back and leave a comment for each extra entry. Giveaway is open to all US residents. Winner will be chosen at random. Giveaway ends Saturday, March 5th @ 6:30pm EST.
