Every year, we spend the summer holidays at my parent's. The kiddies don't need much to have fun, they just enjoy the diy sandbox and the inflatable swimming pool. The most important things are 2 playful dogs and the kids have their own flower pots to grow flowers and herbs. They really enjoy gardening and helping around.
Today, we went "vegetables shopping" to our neighbour's. He's growing in his garden carrots, zucchinis, fennels, leeks, potatoes, grapes, strawberries, raspberries, ... and makes a living from his garden. It's fantastic! Tasteful and local, we also teach the kiddies what's growing on tree and what's underground, we also learn some techniques to avoid insects and other sickness destroying the crops using only natural products or grandma's remedy. A nice afternoon overall !
We spent the rest of the afternoon counting clouds and play around the house.
