Books & Reading Garden Give-Aways

Win ‘The Children’s Garden’

We’ve recently been sent a copy of The Children’s Garden: Loads of Things to Make & Grow by Matthew Appleby. It is packed full of fun ideas and projects for getting the kids involved outside, and even inside during the colder months with gardening-inspired activities.

The Children's Garden

A garden can be a place for discovery, creativity and fun, and a space that encourages children to enjoy and engage with the natural world. Through 52 exciting family projects, this book inspires parents and their children to play and learn in the garden, with activities including nature trails, cooking, crafting and growing plants and vegetables.

The book starts with some basics and suggestions around planting, outdoor play, garden design and safety, before moving onto 52 projects for children to try, divided up by seasons. From Home-Made Seed Bombs in spring, to Miniature Gardens in summer, to Pumpkin Projects in autumn to Feeding the Birds in winter, there are many activities to try, suitable for children of all ages. Every project has a double page spread, one side with clear instructions, the other with helpful photographs.

Inside The Children's Garden

This book is right up our street as the kids love being outside and I like to involve and interest them as much as I possibly can in the wildlife and nature we have out there. It is crammed with ideas that I know the kids will enjoy, so we will be dipping into this over the course of this year and trying many of the suggestions. It’ll be over to the children to choose what they’d like to do. Boo tells me she wants to try Instant Model Villages, creating with Stones and Pebbles and Little Man is very keen to give Knights Go Jousting a try!

Like the look of this one? I do have a copy of this book available to give away now to one of my readers. To be in with a chance of winning it, enter using the rafflecopter below. The competition is open to UK residents only and closes at midnight 14th March 2016. Good luck!
