This brilliant book is bursting with ideas to encourage your little ones to get outside and enjoy the garden in a new way. From growing their own patch of earth and planting a tree, to pressing plants and making garden magnets, there is tons of creative ideas to encourage kids to get up close with nature.
Gardening Lab For Kids features 52 plant-related activities set into weekly lessons, beginning with learning to read maps to find your heat zone, moving through seeds, soil, composting and creating garden art. Author Renata Fossen Brown guides the family through fun opportunities to learn about botany, the seasons, food, insects and much more, all year round. Each lesson can be revisited or split up into a whole year's worth of learning fun as the garden changes with each season.
Each lesson is clearly laid out with materials needed, a clear set of instructions, step-by-step images, and a 'Dig Deeper' section helping you to get even more from the activity. Have fun making a bird feeder in spring, planting a butterfly garden in summer, making a compost bin in autumn or creating a wind chime in winter - there is something for every month of the year. So, why not slip on your waterproofs and go and enjoy the great outdoors with your little adventurers?
