KEEPING THE KIDS BUSY IN THE GARDEN DURING LOCKDOWN

Keeping the kids busy in the garden 

With the kids home this month, you have an excellent opportunity to involve your children in the garden. Gardening for kids has been proven to not only make children happier, but helps them to learn better, cope with stress, get those bodies moving and to have good healthy fun! It is also a great way to get them out of the house and get your kids away from the TV!

Gardening is perfect to capture those busy little minds that live in a world of constant technological entertainment and instant gratification at the mere push of a button. The benefits of gardening to your child far outweigh the initial effort – so if you’re looking for fun gardening to keep kids busy during the Covid-19 lockdown, why not try some of these activities:

  • Make a terrarium in a glass jar. 
  • Paint some pebbles. 
  • Grow succulents in eggshells. 
  • Start a vegetable patch. 
  • Paint plant signs. 
  • Make wind chimes.
  • Recycle tin cans and plant them up.
