Kids - National Wildlife Federation

National Wildlife Federation publishes magazines for children. Ranger Rick, Ranger Rick Jr, and Animal Baby Explorers.  These are the magazines I get my children and I have gotten them since they were babies.  It helps them practice their English and the subscription fee goes to the environment.  I love it and they do as well.  They can use your international credit card and ship overseas.

Lot of fun things on the computer as well. http://www.nwf.org/Home/Kids/Ranger-Rick.aspx

Spring Craft Project: Plant head

Spring Craft Project: Plant Head

plant head2Materials

1 small pot
1cup of soil
1 stocking/ panty hose
1 package of cat grass seeds
miscellaneous buttons/ ribbons, etc
Place a quarter of the soil inside of the panty hose.  Then place the cat grass inside.  Add the remaining soil and then tie the end of the panty hose so it forms a firm ball.  Cut off the excess panty hose.  Sew on any buttons, or ribbons that you desire. I made ours look like a face.  Place inside the pot… as it will serve as a ‘house’.  Water daily and little  “hairs” should start to appear in about week and a half!  Then enjoy!
