Gardening Ideas For Children

The weather looks like it might be picking up at last. This weekend I'm planning to get out into the garden with my son as he has a nature project to work on for school which involves us looking for bugs!

Children love being outdoors so here are a few ideas:

  • Collect flowers, berries, leaves and insects

  • Plant seeds (inside or outside)

  • Create vegetable, fruit and leaf prints

  • Make seed mosaics

  • Simple supervised tasks such as deadheading or watering plants

  • Start a wormery

  • Watch a butterfly or tadpole develop

  • Place carrot tops in water & watch them sprout roots and leaves

  • Press and dry flowers

  • Arrange fresh flowers
