Currently have our sunflower house growing! The kids are wildly excited and interested in examining every step of the process from germination to monster flowers.
Tons of great ideas, I'm pacing myself with trying a few ideas at a time. Loved the list of kid favorite plants, using old shoes for quirky plant containers to make kids laugh....good stuff and bound to be used for decades at my home.
