Spent part of my day at the Natural History Museum trying to convince kids to get their hands dirty by making seed bombs. You'd be surprised how much convincing it took. A lot of kids scrunched up their nose, looked at the dirt, looked at me, looked at their hands and then said, "No thanks."
However, my friend Tim (who's a big kid turning 30 this month!) was more than willing to dig in and even sacrifice his brand new jeans for the cause.
Let's all promise to teach our kids dirt is okay.
