Your backyard or garden is the perfect place for awesome kids' activities this summer.
We are getting ready for Earth Day on April 22nd with a ton of fun activities, games, and crafts you and the family can all do together. Take this day to talk about the importance of taking care of our Earth and how we can play a part in making it an even better place for everyone.
Use fruits and vegetables to create exciting prints on paper or fabric, to make potato sculptures and citrus pendants or fun party piñatas. Summer, when we are able to enjoy fresh fruits at the peak of their season, is the perfect time of year to have fun creating colorful and simple crafts to celebrate the sweetest of Mama Nature's treats.
Chase away the most gray of days this winter and decorate your porch with ice ornaments and make it look lovely for the winter. Ornaments made out of ice with some flowers, pine, berries or winter flowers can look perfect on your outside trees. Simply made from water and time once un-molded and displayed your kids will want to make more, and more, and more.
My daughter and I love nothing more than to sit in the car after returning home from school to watch the smallest of finches hopping and darting around, taking turns feeding from the homemade bird seed ornaments we have left out for our feathered friends on cold winter and spring days. This winter we are making some up-cycled feeders, and here are a few of our favorites.
