Garden Ideas For Kids
Looking for some outdoor activities for kids? Well look no further than your own back garden. Our garden expert, Sarah Croud, has some ideas...
With the digital world demanding our children's attention, it is becoming increasing hard to find exciting ways to entice them away from their devices and into the outside world. Even though the weather is getting cooler, there is no reason for them not to be out there exploring all the garden has to offer.
Being outdoors is an experience we should all treasure, it provides huge benefits both physically and mentally for the whole family and serves as a source of distraction and inspiration. So despite the weather, keep those wellies by the back door ready for action.
There are endless activities that children can do outdoors, so much so that countless books have been written on the subject. These six suggestions merely compliment the more frequently practised, such as encouraging children to grow their own fruit, vegetables and herbs, bug spotting and identification, bee, bug and birdhouse building, sandpits, swings, den making, camping, the list goes on.
Below are my top six garden ideas to get the cool kids outdoors.
