Get aromatic herbs like lemon balm, peppermint, rosemary, chamomile and basil. Plant them in individual pots or one large pot, depending on your space. Treat everyone to a DQ® Blizzard® Treat after you've planted your herbs. Encourage your children to keep a "green" journal when they water, weed and harvest the herbs. Make it a family routine of checking on the plants, nibbling their leaves and observing their growth.
Give your children paint brushes, squirt bottles, spoons and water to try and free the toys. This open-ended play and sensory activity lasts for hours. Watch as your children enjoy the process of digging and discovering each treasure!
