Some of you are probably thinking, "I have boys! Boys don't do these things!" I say, SURE THEY DO! Go Explore Nature's post shows a boy making those potions! My son assisted with our backyard fairy garden and boys love to paint with creative materials (like flowers) just as much as girls do! Just because an activity involves flowers or fairies doesn't mean a boy won't enjoy it. There is something here for everyone this week so grab your girls and/or your boys, pick an activity and Do Something!
