Short and Sweet Suggestion

Thinking of planting a garden?  Whether it's a veggie garden or a flower garden, it's important to determine what type of soil you're working with.  Of course, you can send it into a lab for soil testing, or you can give it the old tried and true mason jar test to determine how much sand, silt, and clay you have.  Check it out here!  Besides, who doesn't love playing in dirt?  Dig in and have fun!

Explore and Create with Sound

Did you sing and make music more when you were little? Don't stop now. Keep on playing!

Did you ever imagine that music could be made from the things around your house? Experiment with making some of your own if you are feeling creative. To be safe, ask an adult for permission before experimenting. 

Find and stick and make it into a one-of-a-kind instrument. 

Make your own maracas with plastic eggs and spoons. Thanks to San Antonio Botanical Garden for this and other "Kids Learning" ideas.
