My kids have never had a lawn to rake before, and now do they ever! (and, yes, they did have a proper-sized rake to use, not just that little plastic one). This activity kept them busy for a good two hours and they had no idea they were working. They even bagged a good bit of it before tumbling back into the house for a restorative snack. The leaves that compost well will be wheel-barrowed to the back of the garden and dumped upon Mount Compost over the weekend.
Life is good!
