Fun Additions to Your Garden That Your Kids Will Love

Out of all the places in the home, the garden is perhaps the most magical and mysterious for children when they’re young. If you have a large garden, then it could seem like a forest to their young innocent eyes, but there are times when our gardens are just dull, boring and lifeless because we simply didn’t put the time and effort into them. If you want to give your kids a backyard wonderland to explore and become inspired by, then here are a couple of fun and unique additions to add to your garden.

My Fairy Garden Watering Can Review

Fairy watering can

Back in 2015, our twin girls helped me to make a fairy garden. Ever since then, the fairies have been quite clever in leaving surprises and gifts out for our girls when they’ve been good. It happens without warning. Usually when I’m on my way to pick the girls up from school. Whilst I’m out the fairies might make the girls their tea and have it ready on the table for them when they come home. Other times they’ve left little gifts like small jars of fairy dust or perhaps a new reading book, but this time they really have… [Read More]

Pimp My Greenhouse!

Ocean Loans recently challenged a small number of bloggers to take part in their my ‘Pimp My Shed’ project. I was lucky enough to be one of those bloggers chosen, although it’s not a shed I’ll be pimping, it’s my greenhouse. I was given £75 to spend to help me give our greenhouse an overhaul. Our greenhouse is a pretty important part of our garden. For the last few years, I’ve been learning how to grow vegetables and I’m pleased to say that our four year old twin girls have been learning with me. We’re all pretty passionate about our… [Read More]

Teaching children to grow vegetables and other garden ramblings!

I’ve always been passionate about gardening. Even from a young age. I remember sitting at a table in my back garden one summer, happily sowing seeds and planting plants. I’d sat in the same place for a good few hours with the sun blazing down on my back. Despite the sunburn, I’d enjoyed spending that time getting back to nature. Every year for the past three years, I’ve grown vegetables and fruit from our garden. Every year, I’ve learnt something new and this year I’ll be growing more than ever before! I’m lucky that in our new house we have… [Read More]
