Toad Cottages & Shooting Stars by Sharon Lovejoy book - (Ends 5/10)
I currently have a great giveaway posted for a book I absolutely love, Toad Cottages & Shooting Stars by Sharon Lovejoy. It's a super resource for fun and interesting activities to do with young children. My favorite chapter is titled "Kitchen Garbage Garden." There's a whole section on sprouting spuds, and I'm proud to say that we've managed to produce a strange looking "alien" potato perfect for using as a seed potato. (See it in the photo to the right?) My daughter can't wait to cut it apart and try growing it in a container. We're going to try forcing a sweet potato to leaf out in a vase with water, too. The giveaway for this book ends on Monday so take some time and enter for a chance to win a copy for yourself!
If you live in or near Wisconsin, be sure to stop by the West Towne Mall Sears store in Madison tomorrow (Saturday, May 8th) for the Lands' End Way to Grow Event with author Sharon Lovejoy. Kids can decorate pots, plant sunflowers, learn about the wonder of worms through hands-on exploration and meet Sharon Lovejoy. (She's also signing books). Sounds like a great time!
