Gardening for Kids


Gardening for Kids offers thirty-five practical activities for children related to nature and the seasons. They include small and decorative tasks such as an ice bowl of flowers and leaves that might be used outdoors in summer.

Then there are gifts such as flower soaps and herbal bath bags. More environmental tasks include building insect hotels and a wildflower bucket. Even dinosaur- addicts are catered for with a superbly inventive tyrannosaurus garden that includes small fern plants or holly ferns.

The practical steps are explained confidently and clearly, while the photographs and directions are helpful and inspiring. I’m keen to make some pine cone feeders to hang in our garden alongside recreating the rainbow cutting garden next spring.

Gardening for Kids is recommended for all households, from small, garden-free, to larger, and then to nurseries and schools, too. Bookwagon is inspired and delighted by this splendid activity book.

Gardening for Kids

35 Nature Activities to So, Grow and Make

Dawn Isaac

(Cico Kidz)- hardback

Dawn Isaac introduces Gardening for Kids with instructions such as how to gather seeds. We learn what equipment is necessary at that point, alongside how her book works. Furthermore, she explains certain terms , such as ‘pricking out’ and ‘plotting on’. Thereafter, she explains the soils and containers, tools and clothes that might need to be prepared and used.
This superb activity book contains thirty-five nature tasks. There are small activities like sprouting birthday cards in which cress seeds are used to pattern. Cress seeds are used in a caterpillar design, also.
A mini window box salad garden are amongst opportunities to make and decorate. Small plastic water bottles create rabbit faced canisters with carrot top ears in ‘Budding Bunny Ears’!  The need for visual appeal in her designs is evident in such projects as the rainbow cutting garden or wheelbarrow vegetable garden.
Making a bird feeder with pine cones, and creating a scarecrow are amongst useful, nature friendly tasks. What’s more there are a range of seasonal tasks too, including an autumn leaf frame and Spring basket!
Like Mr Shaha’s Recipes for Wonder, Gardening for Kids is a thoroughly engaging and positive activity book. Sometimes titles like this can seem daunting to readers. However even the adults necessary to support some of these tasks like drilling containers or adjusting hoops, would find them accessible. Should you have a budding gardener, further tasks are suggested in Gardeners’ World: Ten Growing Projects for Children
