The RHS has collaborated with HRH The Duchess of Cambridge to create a set of activity cards designed to inspire children to engage with gardens and nature. The cards have been created to celebrate the opening of the new Back to Nature Children's Garden at RHS Garden Wisley.
We are also excited to share two special activity cards written by children as part of an RHS and BBC Blue Peter competition.
Have a go at the activities in your group:
Have a go at making a fun miniature garden using natural materials or found objects. You could create a magical fairy hideaway or Jurassic jungle!
Fairy Garden Activity Card
Painted pebbles are fun to make and can brighten up your garden terrace or pots. Use them as plant labels for your crops, use for a treasure hunt or even practice your counting.
