Give your grandchildren the time of their lives: make leaf rubbings, learn the neigbourhood bird songs together, turn an aquarium into a worm hotel. There are garden projects, both for the outdoors - grow a container snacking garden, a pumpkin patch in a pot - and the indoors, i.e. how to use something called 'indoor garbage gardens' to grow pineapples tops, sweet potato vines, peanuts, and more. Cooking projects, both in sunshine - baking in solar oven - and in the kitchen - what child will ever forget the time the two of you made Potato Volcanoes with lava? And lots of rainy day activities for times when nature's in a cranky mood. This title is created by Sharon Lovejoy - a grandmother of four and the author of two classic books of garden activities for grown ups and kids. "Toad Cottages and Shooting Stars" is an ecologically inspired guide that combines more than 130 green activities with timeless grandparenting advice. Illustrated with Lovejoy's distinctive delicate watercolours, it's an inventive resource for grandmother and grandchild to connect with each other through nature. It is the book to make sure an afternoon, a day, or a weekend turns into a memory that lasts forever.
