I enjoy gardening and the kids like to watch/help out. Sometimes their toy of choice can damage the plants, so when they're playing over the plants I suggest lighter and more gentle toys.

We decided to make a light, gentle toy, this straw snake, so they could bring outside!

Total Time: 20 minutes or depending on your child(ren)
