Buy sunflower seeds for those big, huge, tall sunflower varieties, and plant them in a square or circle in a sunny spot in your yard. Water and fertilize them often and be amazed as they surge into growth. With luck, the plants may support one another, or you can provide support stakes. Your kids can spend hours playing inside the "rooms" the sunflowers create.
You can also create a teepee by growing climbing plants on several poles lashed together. See Chapter 19 for details.
