A little book can be a big part of a fun week! Westword Blog used The Carrot Seed and tied in some great learning activities – cooking, science, art and more.

Dandelion Counting Race

dandelion-counting-20150503-15-433x650

Hands on as We Grow made a fun dandelion counting race (another great way to get those weeds picked – wink).  She made grids with chalk outside and the kids raced to fill them up (each space with the same number of dandelions as their age).  Great idea!

These Eggshell Lorax Planters from Rubberboots and Elf Shoes would be a great way to let the kids help you get a jump on your gardening!  And reading the Lorax together would also be a reminder to kids on ways we can help take care of the world we live in. I’m thinking these Lorax will look cute with hair!
