The Children's Garden

A garden is not just a place to grow plants, it can be a creative space, be a setting to play games or simply be a save haven to chill out or mess around outside.
This book is aimed at getting children aged five years and over outside and includes over fifty-two hands-on projects, ranging from the quiet to the noisy and the clean to mega-mucky.
The ideas can be adapted to suit the number and ages of children involved; they are suitable both for entertaining groups of children and for engaging a solitary child.
