Kids love playing in dirt so why not throw in a little horticulture lesson while they’re at it?  A perfect way for kids to learn where their food comes from, and who knows, maybe they’ll even learn to love their veggies!

Set it up in the backyard with some pillows and your child’s favorite books and while away the hours on a summer afternoon. Also ideal for shady picnics al fresco.

We also love the incredibly adorable teepee made by Roberta Roller Rabbit!

Of course, there are always the old standbys – balls, bug catchers, hula hoops, slip n slides and star gazing – to name a few. Here’s to the best summer ever.
