Oh and also, to my knowledge, any but the thinnest, most lightweight of blankets aren't recommended, nowadays, for children under about 1 year of age, let alone ones they can really wrap themselves up in like in the picture. And some parents are cautious about this even for a while afterwards. (I realize the child pictured looks somewhat older than that.) So I would check w/ parents about that "fuzzy blanket" or, I'm sorry, but maybe avoid it altogether.

Delightful ideas, in my opinion! I trust, thought, that most GPs would be wise enough to check w/ the parents before they tried a science experiment w/ the kids, no matter how harmless!

Take them to your flow bed or rose garden ; let them help you water them and plant them.,or vegetable garden.
