Garden Mosaics

As summer approaches, older school children (ages 10 to 18) who are too young to work or can’t find work face three months during which they lack the daily structure and stimulation that school provides. For kids whose parents can afford camp or summer program fees, this might not be such a problem. For kids from lower-income families, summertime can be one long stretch of keeping themselves entertained and out of trouble. Is there some low-cost way to provide these children with a rewarding, stimulating summer experience?
