Whenever Amena comes to visit from Dubai she shows me something new and cool to do. This visit she taught me about air plants. Who knew! Maybe you did!

Amena is the mother of my daughter-in-law Saanya. And Sophie’s other grandma.

Here’s a nice pic of us with the boys even though they don’t do any of these activities with us.

This is such a great activity to do with kids!

Head off to your favorite plant store or nursery and choose a few air plants.

They come in some really interesting shapes and sizes.

Or you can order them on Amazon!

They have no roots and no need to be in soil. Just spray them with water every couple of days.

Choose something to display them on.

Use wire to tie them on loosely. We added some moss on ours.

Amena just grabbed a stick from the back yard and tied on some air plants.

Here’s some other ideas.
