15 Minutes : Play It : Gourds

When you 've collected an assortment of those unusual little gourds (always available at grocery stores and farmer's markets in the fall), spend a few minutes examining them with your kids. Toddlers like different textures; preschoolers can sort by color, size, or type. Those gourds are often pretty sturdy and you could even stack and arrange them with your child. (Watch out for little ones who want to "taste" this activity; the gourds are vegetable of course, but that outside shell can't be too good for them.)
