Mother Nature should be delivering some more Spring-like weather later this week, so you best start making plans to get outdoors and enjoy it right now!


As a parent with young kids, I know this is the time of year when stir-craziness kicks into high gear. The weather gets warmer and the kids start to enjoy fun outdoors, and then BOOM, it's raining, snowing, and freezing again the next day. These drastic changes in weather and temperature can lead to an uptick in children whining, and I HATE that. So, what's a parent to do? Get those kids outside every chance you get to have fun and burn off their energy, (and whining)!

Have You Been to Nature's Touch Garden Center in Janesville, WI Before?

Sadly, I was today years old when I learned that a really fun outdoor center with plenty of activities for kids exists just over the border in Janesville, Wisconsin. It's called Nature's Touch Garden Center and just look at all the fun things kids can do there today...

Besides its cool Activity Center for kids, Nature's Touch Garden Center also offers everything you need for your landscaping and gardening dreams! From pond supplies to plants, trees, shrubs, and flowers, Nature's Touch has all your outdoor needs covered. So, the way I see it, while the kids are bouncing on the jumping pillow or taking a train ride, you can shop for pretty plants, which all equals out to a big win-win!

Nature's Touch Garden Center is located at 5013 W State Road 11 in Janesville, and its Activity Center is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (weather permitting) and costs $10 per person. (admission is discounted to $7.50 for the remainder of April!)
