It's science fun along with all our science fair projects preparation this week in our multigenerational homes and even my sweet senior mom has joined in the fun with her gardening magazines.
Our younger grandkids have to collect pictures of flowers and plants for their Christian home schooling program and she's had such a great time picking out some good ones from her collection. She's got Garden Ideas & Outdoor Living, Country Gardens, one of the great State-by-State Gardening magazines, and Container Gardening. And then her favorites, Birds and Blooms, along with a Burpee Seed Catalog, are in another pile for sharing with all her long distance grandkids who absolutely love all things birds and butterflies. She gets so blessed by cutting out pictures of both and using them as stickers and stationery when writing them. Talk about your easy crafts for seniors, that is also great for the kids. And it looks so cute! 🙂
It may be a bit chilly (we finally got a tiny bit of snow) but she's already thinking ahead, longingly, to her own senior gardening projects for the spring, collecting pictures from these same magazines all about how to create a butterfly garden, and hoping to have a better year growing it along with our beloved sunflowers and sunflower houses! Now that she's feeling a bit better, hopefully the gardens will be as well. And won't those local grandkids have a great time in our senior gardening projects!
isn't God's world grand! And isn't it fun when we get to include the whole Sandwich Generation family while babysitting and helping our grandchildren. She was tickled pink, they were tickled pink, and I was tickled pink. Hmmm – sounds like this is perfect for Pink Saturday, what do you think? 🙂
