If you’re looking for activities to keep your children occupied this week, then look no further. National Children’s Gardening Week is the perfect opportunity to get your children inspired and to spend more time outdoors. You can also find healthier activity alternatives to replace screen time, encouraging those children who struggle to unglue from their devices.

Children are bundles of energy, enthusiastic and curious. Spending time outdoors in nature can keep them amused, and it allows them to absorb the world all around them. It’s a wonderful activity that teaches them skills that will last a lifetime. There are many benefits to children spending time outdoors. It can improve creativity, concentration, and self-confidence. Use your garden to keep them happy, healthy and educated!

Whether you’re searching for ways to encourage your child to spend more time outside or to introduce them to a new hobby, gardening has a variety of fun activities for them to enjoy. You can introduce a simple composting activity for kids while teaching them what household items can be reused, recycled, or composted. You can get them to make their own micro-composters, and all you need is a clear bottle, food scraps, some garden soil, and water. If they need somewhere to collect food waste for their compost, we have a range of small food caddies which are easy to use and clean! Other fun activities include doing a garden scavenger hunt or making a fairy garden using a small area in the garden. If you’re stuck for ideas, here are lots of exciting garden activities.

Encourage your children to wash their hands more often, especially to keep their hands clean and protected while gardening. Our Aroma Smart Sensor Soap Dispenser (available in matt white, dark grey or stainless steel) is the most efficient and hygienic tool to keep hands germ-free and protect your family from everyday impurities. When you start teaching them young, hand washing can easily become a lifelong habit.

Happy Gardening
