The half-term holidays have begun, and National Children's Gardening Week is underway. We have our fingers crossed for a week of warm weather, which means getting outside and getting the kids involved in sprucing up your outdoor space, from digging in the dirt to planting flowers and enjoying garden games.
Rain or shine, we have a selection of gardening tools and toys to encourage even the tiniest of green fingers!
Stacking Flower Garden Set
While children aren't always patient enough to wait for new shoots to flower, this Stacking Flower Garden Set encourages a love of gardening with instant results. Featuring a selection of wooden flowers, leaves, stems and plant pots that are sure to keep their imaginations flowing!
Your little nature lovers will be delighted with their very first set of gardening tools! The Very Hungry Caterpillar 3-Piece Gardening Tools Set includes everything they’ll need to get started in the garden – a small shovel, trowel, and fork.
A Game of Croquet
Our Safari Croquet Game is a fun activity your toddler is sure to love. The set is made up of 6 adorable animal arches for you to hit the ball through and 2 mallets. This set is perfect for enjoying time in the garden and encouraging good hand-eye coordination.
Paint your own Bug Hotel
Teach your children to appreciate even the tiniest of critters in the garden with The Very Hungry Caterpillar Paint Your Own Bug Hotel kit. Featuring the much loved Very Hungry Caterpillar artwork, this set comes with six brightly coloured paints and a paint brush so the kids can decorate the hotel before watching as bugs set up home in it this summer.
Also available as a Butterfly House.
Watering the Garden
The perfect gift to inspire little green fingers, this Beatrix Potter Watering Can encourages time outdoors and some help with your gardening! It brings a classic addition to your gardening tools collection and is perfectly sized for little hands to hold and features a wide opening that’s easy for children to fill with water themselves.
Flower pressing is a craft that can be enjoyed by all ages regardless of weather. Gather flowers from your garden or while out walking with the family. The BigJigs Flower Press lets your kids examine flowers in detail. Once pressed, the flowers can be used to make gift cards and artwork!
