I had been wanting to make one of these for so very long after seeing the inspiration from The Imagination Tree
So as we came into Spring and I started planning the many things I want to achieve for a very outdoor inspired Spring and Summer one of these was to have a play garden.
It really seemed such an extension of the Mud Kitchen's we have had over the years that I thought our children would love it.
And so our plans were made!
Here is what we bought to make the garden with:
a roll of timber border
2 bags of potting mix
terracotta pots in various sizes
4 new digging shovels
a decorative lantern
a bamboo light
2 garden decorations
2 windmills (not pictured)
various plants as follows-
a pink and a white daisy
Allyssum (Stephen's favourites)
Seaside Daisy (my favourite)
Creeping pin Thyme
Now let me take you through the steps we made-
We chose an area under a tree that would have a nice lot of shade for the children in the hotter months
Cause we all know that if children are digging they prefer the dirt to a sandpit anyway.
In our experience a sandpit is a completely different play area with different types of play activities
Over the week we have had quite a few little trips by small ones to the play garden for some outside fun.
Next up on my list- to finish that swing set plus platform and a very nice sandpit.
Blessings to you and your homes,
