Saturday night surfing: for the green kids in your life

At least one Saturday night a month I like to scout the internet for great new finds in the eco-online world. Tonight I found some for the kids! - beautiful site. Loved her seven year old's fairy house birthday party. Great book list. - a Canadian site for kids. Very user-friendly, informative and fun - the graphics aren't as cool, but useful info - great tools for zero waste lunches! - this is more formal/scientific in appearance and web demeanor is a beatiful blog with a lot of great topics and it's concise, informative, helpful and nice to look at!

For older kids: - I enjoy this site by National Geographic. They've got helpful "go green" guides
This is a great site: a path to green via adventure and learning
The JASON project is "A nonprofit subsidiary of the National Geographic Society, JASON connects young students with great explorers and great events to inspire and motivate them to learn science. Its core curriculum units are designed for 5th – 8th grade classrooms but are flexible enough to be adapted for higher or lower grades."

I'll leave you with a great Salsa recipe for the budding gardeners in Cville...
Salsa Fresca from Deidre at www.thegreenguideforkids.blogspot.com1/2 medium onion
1 jalapeno stemmed and seeded (less if you don’t want it too hot)
2 cloves of finely minced garlic
4 tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped
1/4 cup cilantro or parsley
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper

Happy surfing!
