AUTUMN CRAFTS
Infinite creative possibilities with Conkers
Even writing about this seems to simple and easy, but I want to plant the seed and let it grow. Conkers are fun to collect as the Autumn winds blow and the leaves fall. They are shiny, they are very soothing to hold. And they live inside of these tennis ball green husks covered in ...

Foraging (or collecting edible weeds)
Have you ever gone to your local park, forest or garden to collect edible weeds? My kids and I love to go out and pick our dinner in 'the wild'. It's fun, and I think it teaches them something about food and nature. Also, it motivates them to help prepare dinner (and eat it). We've been making ...
