Create a Mini Garden

So simple to set up, but extremely effective.  Set aside an empty flower bed and put out a variety of the following:

  • mini rakes
  • shells
  • pieces of tiles
  • small stones
  • off cuts of fragrant herbs e.g. mint
  • off cuts of shrubs
  • pine cones
  • sticks

Encourage the children to become mini landscape gardeners. They soon become extremely creative and put their imaginations to good use.  Adding herbs makes it more of a sensory experience.
