If there's one thing that most of the children in my life love, it's to play with tactile stuff you can eat! My kiddo built parks out of broccoli and carrots when as a child was little and to this day my teen will shape anything out of playdough with my two-year-old niece.

This week I read that there's a bunch of lead in many American schools, which should make us all quite uneasy, to say the least. I remember throwing away my Harry Potter bookends just because I was afraid my two-year-old might lick them after I saw them on a lead paint recall!
I don't know about you, but when I picture hermit crabs changing their shells I usually think of them finding a discarded shell here or there as they outgrow their old ones. I never dreamed that they might organize their own shell swap meet, but apparently it happens!
