    My kids are loving the Plant Strong Kids activities! Their favorite part is the Firefighter Challenge, although my daughter calls it the veterinarian challenge because that’s what she wants to be when she grows up :)

    I love the pdfs you’re creating! We’re toying with the idea of printing and distributing here. I noticed there is one line that talks about earning ‘points.’ I looked over several previous blog posts, but I can’t find a reference to it. Could you elaborate?
