Summer is a great time to unplug and unwind. The days are long, the nights are short, and so is our time with our kids. It can be difficult to find activities that do not cost a lot of money, especially when we consider how long the summer beak lasts. Thats why it is great to find fun outdoor activities that do not cost money, but they still give us the chance to get outside and interact with our kids.

Dinosaur Habitats: DIY Dinosaur Gardens

My kids are obsessed with dinosaurs. I thought it would be a neat idea for them to create their own fun little dinosaur world. They have so many little toy dinosaurs and are constantly telling me what each dinosaur eats and where they live, I thought it was time they showed me. I have seen so many of those little fairy gardens that I thought why not a dinosaur garden? The idea is pretty simple, and leaves the creativity up to the kids. So why not?

You and your kids can get as many items as you would like. You could build your dinosaur garden in a planter, an old tire, a large apothecary bowl or jar, or even right in your own backyard. All you need is some ideas and whatever type of plants you want.
