UNL Extension in Lancaster County, Nebraska, has a great nutrition newsletter that I've subscribed to for several years.
Now they have a link for Youth Gardening with several fun activities to do outside and inside with children to help them learn and love nature.
My favorites are the directions for making a scarecrow and a link to the Yuckiest Site on the Internet. Activity instructions are printable.
A site in Australia has unique scarecrow-making ideas. Click here to go to Go For Your Life.
