Not all seeds are created equal! Some are nice and easy to grow and others are a little more particular about conditions before they even attempt to poke their head above compost. If you are gardening with kids you want successes……… Continue reading
The Tiny Trowelers became Kings and Queens of the garden this week. We created fabulous crowns decorated with petals & leaves from around the garden. They looked great! I’m not sure Bromsgrove is ready for me to parade down the highstreet in mine just yet, there are definitely some things only kids can get away with!
The sun has shone for us this week and we have a great time in the Tiny Trowels garden. The colourful pots the Tiny Trowelers were busy painting last term look brilliant. We’ve planted the gladioli into these pots and they are now ready to give to someone special on Sunday (Dad’s you haven’t read this!!). We’ve also had fun picking and shelling broad beans along with tasting mangetout and some gorgeously sweet strawberries! 😀
A great week in the Tiny Trowels garden! The Tiny Trowelers have been busy putting the finishing coat of paint on their colourful pots. We have also been brewing up some special potions to help our plants grow big and strong (no newt or frog were harmed during potion making!). The sunflowers are growing nicely, competition is not yet fierce. That said there was a lot of watering going on by some! Once the potions are ready we may have some world record breakers!!
It’s half term next week so I will see you all the following week. Have a lovely break!
Great sessions this week with the Tiny Trowelers….. what’s not to love about mud painting! Take a good dollop of mud, add water till you have the perfect brown paint and then, go crazy. We had mud monsters coming out of mud caves, mud handprints, mud paint flicking, there was even a mud me painted on the tree (thank you Darcie, I love my big smiley face)!
We also planted up some grass egg heads that the Tiny Trowelers will grow on at home and eventually they will need a haircut! I may give mine a mohican, watch this space and feel free to share your pictures!
Today the Tiny Trowelers were looking at seeds of all shapes and sizes. We had a seed hunt around the garden and used water squirters to shoot at the different seeds we found (I seemed to be mistaken for a giant seed on several occasions which resulted in a lot of chuckling!). We then used playdough to make impressions of the different shapes and explore the patterns they left.
In amongst all this exploration was of course snack-time. Say ‘CHEESE’!!
