Children and the Great Outdoors
Author: Verity Webb Date Posted:8 February 2016
With the school holidays coming to an end, we wanted to do a shout out to all those children returning to school and also to those starting school for the very first time! How exciting!
Gardening and the great outdoors are so important for children. It offers them a fun filled activity outside in the fresh air and also teaches them so much. It teaches them about nature and the interaction between plants and animals and also about the relationship between humans and nature.
We love nothing more than seeing a child’s face light up at the sight of a beautifully coloured butterfly. Or the look of excitement and confusion as they touch the furry stems of a lavender plant. Next time you’re out in the garden, take you’re children with you and watch the delight on their faces.
Here is a fun list of plant facts for all the children out there :-)
