Make feeding stations for wildlife



Most children love watching wildlife, whether it’s from a window or nearby when they’re playing outside — it never fails to inspire a sense of wonder and curiosity.

Help your kids welcome animals to your garden by creating feeding stations for different types of wildlife: this could include making a bird feeder out of a large empty water bottle or sprinkling some bread down for them in a concealed corner of the garden, out of the way of any pets.

You could also get them to crush up some pet biscuits and lay them out for hedgehogs to nibble on or scatter some peanuts out for adventurous badgers. Taking steps like this can encourage wildlife into your garden, which is sure to be a hit with the kids!

Whether you want to get them out in the garden more or you’re looking for an activity to bond over, creating a garden project is a great way to spend quality time together!
