Digging, Planting & Growing

Children love to dig and take endless pleasure in shifting piles soil or sand from one area to another!  Digging helps to develop hand-eye co-ordination as well as understanding of capacity, movement and space.   

Providing children with an area in your outdoors where they can grow their own plants gives them the opportunity to learn about planting, caring for and harvesting from an early age.  This helps develop understanding of the food chain and the environment.  Sensory and colourful plants also add a rich source of natural colour, texture and smell to your outdoors.
