Day 105: Magic with nasturtium leaves
Day 105 of #365 Creative #Ideas to do with your kids: Do you have nasturtium leaves in your garden? Have fun with water droplets on the leaves. Nasturtium leaves have a coating that repels water, so water droplets appear like silver mercury on the leaves. Carefully pick a leaf and your kids can make the water droplet roll around. Try making it jump, and then catch it.The young leaves are tender and edible as well and also have antibiotic properties. The leaves and petals of nasturtium are extremely nutritious as they contain vitamin C and iron.
