Let;s encourage our children to turn off the TV, shut down the computer, and put away the video games and go outside and get dirty! Most children spend way too much time with the electronics and need to be encouraged to get active and go outside. Author V. A. Boeholt is encouraging you and your children to do just that this summer. Take time to get outside and plant a garden, or if you don't have room for a garden perhaps you could do some plants in a planter.
V. A. Boeholt, author of Burton's Friendship Garden has a Facebook contest going on that you can enter. The Grand Prize is:valued at over $100 that includes kids-gardening tools, seeds, games, the newest book by V.A. Boeholt: Burton’s Friendship Garden and a $25 gift certificate for the children’s books offered by Little Five Star (www.littlefivestar.com)!
We just started turning over the soil to start our garden. Now if it would just stop raining long enough for us to finish! We are also working on some mini-gardens.
