Encourage children to grow their own food so they find out exactly where it comes from. You don't need a massive garden or allotment to let them get involved - buy a brightly coloured square veg patch! The sense of responsibility children will get from these planting beds will be incredibly motivating, as they'll know that this square of earth is entirely theirs. And it's best for your garden, as you don't need to dig anything up for them to get started! The square foot gardens are perfect for tiny gardens, patios or balconies. And because they're made out of recycled plastic and old computers, they're not only bright and tough, they also tell the valuable story of recycling.
Kids love studying creepy crawlies up close, watching them crawl, scuttle or fly. This insect conservation centre is the perfect gift to broaden their minds to the world of insects. It features a solar light which is irresistible to flying insects. And one they're inside, this multi-faceted insect centre has five curious chambers for the bugs to roam around in. It even includes a large chamber with a magnified glass, so you can study them all in minute detail. There are additional nesting tubes, which attract solitary bees (the non-swarming type) and a lacewing chamber.
By drawing insects into the garden, you can explain to the children how bees help to put food on the table, the story of the food chain, and how moths turn into caterpillars.
These fun to grow seeds prove that you can be three years old and still grow the biggest sunflower in the whole neighbourhood. The range of seeds for young children features seeds to feed the birds, healthy veg gang and tomato seeds in their own special pots. The brightly coloured packets and fun cartoons make growing your own cool and child friendly.
Butterflies are intriguingly beautiful and fascinating creatures. Did you know that many butterflies can taste with their feet? And there are up to 24,000 varieties? Fill your garden with colourful butterflies so children can admire their delicate beauty. They can be surprisingly tame and perfech quite happily on clothes or hair, giving an opportunity to see them closer. Our butterfly and moth habitat and feeders provide a home for these interesting insects. The feed tray has an ultra-violet paint only visible to butterflies, which encourages them to come closer.
Why not team this up with a bug catcher to catch flying insects in the air? Children will have hours of fun swooping the net while chasing bugs.
Children are fascinated by planting seeds and love to watch them grow into beautiful flowers. These seed bombs teach the wonder of growing in an exciting way. All you have to do is prepare the 'bomb', fling it at any bit of sorry looking land and wait for the magic to happen. They make up 17 - 20 bombs, and in the right conditions, will explode with colourful wild-flowers.
