Simple Summertime Project
One of my favorite things to do with the kids over Summer, that costs nothing but brings back priceless childhood memories for me, is to color Queen Anne's Lace. Not very high tech but the kids like to see what colors they can come up with and how long it takes to turn each plant into a piece of art. First, find some Queen Anne's Lace to cut. You can usually find it growing along the roadside or in grassy fields. We have areas on the property that are uncut so I just look along the edges of the high grass. Try to cut blooms that haven't yet fully opened.
