I love this idea and want to try it at the ‘Curiosity Corner’ garden at the Museum where I volunteer.

That Bloomin' Garden



You can always tell I work with children from the crazy ideas I come up with. A couple of months ago I saw this idea online and just had to create one at our community garden. Our children’s garden has a seating area made with old stumps. Surely I could spare one for a game board. I knew the children that visit the garden would enjoy a game of checkers if I made one for them to use.
