Games for 3 - 5yrs Garden in a Bowl
Children love growing things – it is an excuse to get muddy and be productive as well!
You will need a washing up bowl or old style tin bowl.
Soil (can be just taken from the garden or a park)
Moss and small plants, maybe a few stones of gravel.
Make a hole in the bottom of the washing up bowl for drainage.
Get your toddler to put the soil in and pat it down, he/she can then “plant” the moss, get one or two small plants that he/she can also plant. You can make a grave path with a few little stones.
If you have a small pocketsize travel mirror – an unbreakable one like the ones on the baby gyms that could make a “pond”. Alternatively if you get a yogurt carton, wash it out and cut the bottom off leaving about 5mm of “wall”. You could fill it with water.
