This is a great activity to do with your grandchildren. If you don’t have your own home garden, plan a trip with your grandchildren to a farm where you can pick fruit like strawberries, blueberries or peaches. Once your get home, try making juices, pies or jam. It’s an inexpensive activity and you have a product to share at the end of the day.  You can visit for a list of local farms, directions for canning fruit and recipes.
