I am so excited for the spring and those longer evenings in the garden. The anklebiters love going out to play in the garden after dinner and it’s lovely to just sit and watch them. This year we are going to invest in a garden bench and some cushions to make it more comfortable.
There is loads to do in the garden for the little ones some of our favourite things are –
- Bug hunting and collecting to live in their wooden bug houses
- Watering the plants and fruit and veg they have planted
- Making fairy gardens
- Garden games such as hopscotch , giant jenga and hula hooping
- And as always they love some fun in the playhouse
This year we have an ever growing list of things we want to plant these include –
- Lettuce and cucumber
- A pumpkin patch
- Green beans and Peas
- We also want to plant some apple trees
I think it’s so important to teach the little ones about sustainable living and it is so good for them to watch something grow that they have planted. They also get super excited to check if they have grown every day. They also love going to chose the seeds and plants and of course the accessories.
