If you don’t have much space or want a little project for summer.. here is a cute “mini DIY garden” that the kids can make all themselves. All you need is a containe, some earth, some seeds and “bits and bobs” and off you go. Get the kids to look after their mini garden all summer. You can keep this mini garden both indoors and out!
A bug hotel is a GREAT Garden Idea for Kids and these Easy Bug Hotels are great for children of ANY AGE! A wonderful way to upcycle AND get closer to nature. The kids will love collecting all the different “bits and pieces” and then bringing them together in this fun and easy way.
This upcycle pallet garden wall isn’t strictly speaking a kids garden craft, but it can certainly be a collaborative project. It will teach the kids the value of upcycling and they will love working together on this. Simply beautiful. This pallet wall garden was spotted on our London Canal Walk! Let’s see what bugs YOU can attract into your garden! See what other more grown up garden ideas you can combine this with?
One thing EVERY child should experience is a bit of planting. Make some super duper easy newspaper “Pots” and get the kids to write their own labels (a great way to sneak in some writing practice for sure!). Even if you never ever manage to grow and fruit or vegetables.. the process itself will be great for the kids to see and follow! You could also add a Craft Stick Craft and create craft stick plant markers!
