Spring is turning to summer so there’s no better time than the present to teach your kids about plants and gardening. Don’t have a backyard or proper garden? No worries, check out Inhabitots’ post on Leafy Wonders’ Mini Garden Kit.

We’re all somewhat obsessed about our health and what we eat… often to the point of being unhealthy. UrbanBabyBuzz posted a quick review of “Feed the Belly,” a book of 70 recipes designed to address cravings and satisfy nutritional needs before and during pregnancy. I’m not recommending the book as I haven’t read it, but hey, maybe its worth a look. While on the topic of books, why not take a peek at Momnesia posted via CoolMomPicks.

Elephants and dominoes… born to be together? Via MyMomShops. It seems that Elephants aren’t the only african creatures made out of wood… CoolMomPicks posted about this wooden giraffe toy set not long ago. In fact I don’t see why the two shouldn’t be matched. You could easily haul those dominoes in the giraffe’s slick trailer.

Some kids like sailboats, others lust after canoes or speedboats. Something tells me there’s a kid or two here in Vancouver that might enjoy the chance to pilot one of those huge tankers that anchor out in English Bay… and it seems a lucky few might get a chance. Check out the Replica Oil Supertankers posted over at LikeCool! Man. I’d love to give one of these a shot.
