4. Plant a garden….

Whether it’s a planting and growing herbs on your the window still or having a vegetable patch in the garden, there are lots of valuable lessons and of course fun to be had for kids.  The easy things you can grow are things such as Sunflowers, cress, and tomatoes. Its a great way to get kids to eat veg too! We also love these gift boxes from Mud & Bloom perfect for inspiring little green fingers https://www.mudandbloom.com/
