The Lowdown: 
  1. Suit kiddos up in a hat and gloves and send them out to the yard to pull some weeds.
  2. Weeds can be tricky to pull out because they often break at the stem. Roots are left behind to regenerate the plant. Use a garden shovel as needed with parental supervision.
  3. As you're pulling out, discuss the different types of weeds you see. What color are they? Do they have pokey bits? Can you see the seeds?
