Grass Soup

Yes, those ARE my good kitchen spoons. But loaning them to the kids is worth it when we get an hour of two of good play. This is one of my kids' favorite summer games. In fact, I can lug out the wading pool and the sprinkler and whatever else, and they will probably just end up making grass soup.
All it takes is a bucket of water per kid, a spoon (or two) per kid and lots of nature. I believe this particular rendition has water, dirt, rocks, and grass, but I have seen the kids get even more creative lately. In goes any kind of nut or seed pod they can find; in goes any kind of insect that they are brave enough to catch.
So grab those buckets and maybe a kitchen spoon or two, and have fun!
