The Cutest Sea Urchin

My daughter came home from preschool yesterday with the cutest little craft.  It's a Sea Urchin:
Isn't it adorable?  It's made of Playdoh and toothpicks.  They are learning about sea creatures right now- a great project for a summer vacation :)

Here are some more creative, sophisticated Sea Urchins from Etsy:

What to do today...

So this is my first post and I'm trying to finish up while my daughter patiently waits for me to do something today.  I think we will finally work on our plants that we started from seed.  It's been too cold to keep them outside but maybe the winter weather is finally over!  We bought this really great starter kit at Target that came with dried dirt and 36 compartments.  We have Cilantro, Basil, Scallions, lettuce, wildflowers and poppies.....
Any tips???
