Remember I bought this guy?
Painted this guy green:
Stuck them together, and now he lives with his rhino friend.
And they are very solemn together. I love it.

I saw this on pinterest. Freeze small toys in a block of ice and let the children loose on them with hammer. This activity was a huge success and the kids liked to think they were freeing the prisoners. It is a good hand-eye coordination exercise, smashing things is always a blast, and edible shrapnel makes this a perfect summer treat. Allow 24 hours to freeze properly.

With the seasonal trend encouraging plants in the home, look no further than your local thrift store for a huge selection of potting and display options. These cost from $.50-$2 and include a sugar bowl. There are so many shapes and colors to be mixed and matched! The plants are from Ikea. I love my bit of green in the kitchen.

Have you seen the Pottery Barn kids store this month? Lots of brown twisted paper trees and hanging twine vines. This is a store display re-create. It would be way more effective with many more, but the kids were pleased. And they get another lesson that you don’t have to buy most things, you can make them!
