Garden Crafts for Children is crammed full of inspirational ideas to get kids excited about gardening and nature. A wheelbarrow vegetable garden, cress caterpillars, a sunflower alley, and an insect hotel are just some of the fun and creative ideas in this invaluable book. There are chapters on using creative containers from teapots to rain boots, windowsill gardening with foods such as cress and beans, and beautiful nature crafts such as picture frames and mobiles that can be made indoors. Whether your garden is big or small, and even if you don’t have a garden at all, Dawn Isaac’s wonderful garden crafts will keep kids entertained, with plenty of projects to fill every season. The 35 projects, perfect for children from ages 3 to 11, are designed to be achievable and affordable with simple-to-follow, step-by-step photographs and clear advice, and there is help on growing and gardening for children and adults alike.

- All of the ideas have been tried-and-tested on Dawn’s junior gardeners--her children Ava, Oscar, and Archie.
- There are indoor as well as outdoor projects, so the projects will keep children busy all year round and in all weathers.
