Grow some fun. (No dirt required.)

BPFK Earth Garden 2

Earth Day is right around the corner and what better way to honor the planet than by recycling paper into a colorful vegetable garden? All kids love crafts (even if they aren’t too big on veggies). Try this out with your little one, and who knows, you may soon have a budding vegetable lover on your hands.
