This actually just reminded me to put it on my calendar, and plan out a couple of recipes I want to make with the kids from fresh, organic, locally-grown yuminess. How cute would your kids be toting around their very own “strawberry” tote bag, after you’ve read through the included booklet about farms and they wrote out the list on their special notepad?

I’m always on the lookout for toys to keep my kids active and burning off energy, and this little fella caught my eye. We have plenty of hula hoops and jump ropes lying around, but this turtle target game is something that would appeal to both my 10 year old and 3 year year old.

LOVE! Kiwi Crate has always been a favorite of mine, and check this out: They have a Summer Discovery Pack for the months of July, August and September. Each month your kids explore a different theme, including activities for nature, water, and flight. The floating sailboat and kite-making kits look especially fun.

Summer craftiness doesn’t get much cooler than this Ice Pop Garland Kit from Paper Source. They can also be used to make place cards which is an excellent pre-meal activity for kids.

      Fen is, too. We have a museum of lapidary art here, and she’s taken an interest in all things rocky. I think these would be fun to play with in terms of different fruity/gem colors!
