Get some top tips on keeping the kids entertained in the garden on weekends!
Give kids a holiday break to remember with fun gardening projects to complete in the backyard. Kids will enjoy the fresh air and remaining days of sunshine while getting their hands dirty with exciting and sustainable activities throughout the autumn school holidays.
• Research fun D.I.Y projects to complete with the kids across the holiday break. These can range from worm farms, vegetable and herb garden beds, composting and more!
• The best way to teach children about the importance of sustainability is by implementing sustainable practices around the home. Autumn is a great time to kick-start new sustainable practices in the garden.
• At the beginning of the holidays sit down with the kids and ask what projects they would like to complete in the garden. It is also a good idea to allow the kids to choose items themselves which they can use for their special garden project.
• Encourage children as they complete their projects and provide help when needed. Also, beprepared for mess - rain, soil and grubby fingers are guaranteed after long days spent in thegarden. It might be a good idea to have a broom, mop and towel readily available to combatmess.
• Children will gain a sense of achievement when they see their plants, herbs and compost gardens grow. A great way to make the most of this is by photographing the kids completing their projects. These photos can be displayed on the home's fridge and walls for the whole family to admire.
