Children’s Activities

Get ready to have lots of fun with your Little Seedlings using our collection of online garden activities for children. We’re here to help with lots of inspiration for you and your family, including nurturing activities to connect them with plants, wildlife and the environment.  

 

We’ve got a growing list of indoor and outdoor gardening activities for children, and we update it every month. Whether you want your Little Seedling to learn how to plant seeds, grow their very own vegetables, or get crafty in the kitchen with yummy creations, we’ve got all that and more. We also have plenty of educational sheets on a range of topics, and lots of exciting challenges that you can get stuck into together.  

 

Come back each month to see our updated garden activities for those aged 4-10 years old. And we love seeing what your Little Seedlings get up to, so feel free to share your experiences with us on Facebook and Instagram using #DobbiesLittleSeedlings.
