Tips for Gardening with Kids

Summer is here! Which means it’s time to start gardening. Why not get the kids involved? Gardening is a great way to get kids of the couch and outside learning about responsibility and science. It lets you spend quality time together enjoying the beauty of nature. And you may even find your kids are excited to eat the fruits and veggies they’ve grown. *gasp* But before you break out the trowels and herd the kiddos outside, here’s are a few tips for gardening with kids.

DIY Pressed Flower Pendant

April showers bring May flowers–crocuses, daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, irises, and so on. Don’t you just wish you could freeze time and make those vibrant, delicate flowers last forever? While I was at Joann’s buying supplies for an upcoming project, I discovered these gorgeous lockets. I immediately loved the vintage, timeless look and thought it would beautifully compliment some of the flowers I had pressed this spring. Add some decorative paper, perhaps a page from an old book, and you can capture the magic and allure of spring in a very fashionable necklace.
