Fly me away! How I love a box of sidewalk chalk. So many different things you can do. Just a day later Peach put a tiny monster on almost every one of the little bricks of our back patio. Hours of fun, for so little money.
In our house pants are optional!
We've had a huge influx of crickets and grasshoppers this year. The kids have had a good time collecting them in jars, watching them for a day, and then letting them go. This sucker was so strong he actually rocked the jar with his jumps!
My mom planted these sunflowers with my kids in Utah and then we brought them home in the van. I didn't think any of them would make it, they were so straggly but five of them took hold and grew up tall and beautiful. The kids love them and I was surprised by how gorgeous a live giant sunflower head could be. We will definitely be planting some more again next year.
