Collecting the flowers belongs to the fun, and is an excellent job for little ones as you can supervise them in their adventure to find flowers – so long as you make sure your prized rose bushes are from bounds! Flower pressing simply requires some paper and a heavy book.
Make An Indoor Garden
We used bits and pieces from our junk cupboard as well as scraps of fabric and found objects from the garden to make this miniature indoor garden – a great project for a rainy afternoon, to being the outdoors inside.
Messy, fun, but absolutely worth it! You simply provide the paint along with a canvas and see what your children create. You can give them guidelines to help you, such as using smaller fingers for spots and finer details, to entire hand prints for larger areas. Great to do outside on the sunny day as you don’t have to worry about wanton hands on furniture.

The mixture recipe can be found online, or buy a large bottle of ‘bubbles’ from the pound shop or similar type of shop.
