I wanted to teach my kids about growing your own mushrooms. Growing mushrooms in your home is a great idea and learning activity to teach your kids.
This Oyster Mushroom Growing Kit from http://backtotheroots.com is a great product.
It only took about 8 days for the mushroom spores to fully mature in delicious mushrooms.
The biggest thing I learned from this experiment is how people learn from human touch. The kids were almost addicted to touching and feeling the mushrooms through its growing cycle.
The kids and I both enjoyed eating fresh mushrooms that we grew in our own home. We have already started growing the other side on the box.
