From melting Popsicles to digging in the garden to gooey marshmallows around the campfire, there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy life to its filthy fullest this summer. The kids are home from school and the days are longer, so it’s the perfect time to get outside with science projects that are both educational and fun.
A garden is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child. Your time is another. This summer, dig down into the dirt with your children to find countless benefits for the mind, body, and soul. Whether you have a backyard filled with raised beds, a sunny patch out front, or a community garden, the advantages are all the same.
By mid-May our “spring cleaning” kick is in full swing – just in time for the kids to create toilet paper flower bouquets, construction paper tulip cards, and paper plate purses we simply can’t throw away.

Inviting kids into the kitchen can be a fun, family-friendly experience where kids explore new foods and learn about nutrition and healthy food choices – like these Dark Chocolate Raspberry Popsicles made with fresh fruit, coconut palm sugar, and dairy-free chocolate chips. A fun recipe the entire family can enjoy.
