Chalkboards, Children and Plants

September 11th, 2014

According to something I read in the paper the other day gardening with children is going to be the next big thing with more 25 – 35 year olds starting to garden than any other age group.

What is there not to like, being outdoors in sunny weather, learning about our plants, what works for them and what does not, that is what gardening is all about.

So the big question is how do we make our garden a great place for children to play in?

Well how about this idea, which I came across recently, Kim Watts has a 3 1/2 year old boy who just loves being out in the garden, and so they have added chalk boards to the garden fences.

We love the idea, in particular target practice which appeals to boys of all ages!

What do you think? A chalkboard in the garden… Perfect.
