This section is especially for children who like to grow and make things.
Your never to young to start!
In this section I will be including things that children can do around the garden.
I will also be writing about things they can make for and from the garden.
So come back each month and follow along with your children.
You never know; you might have the next Don Burke or Richard Moran in your sites.
|This is Jackson 3 & Levi 2 who are just about ready to start a vegie patch|
so follow these two over the next couple of months
and you too can have a lot of fun in your garden.
It's always good to build a scarecrow and get it up in the garden. They are good for scaring away all those birds that want to eat your young plants. After all, I don't think you want to be out there ALL DAY trying to scare off those pesky birds. Then you need to begin a good compost area, as you will be needing a good soil to grow all your lovely seeds and plants, but we will talk about compost next time.
1. Take one pair of stockings or pantyhose and tie the tops of the legs together under the body part. Stuff the body part with straw to make the head and tie it off at the top. Glue some wool on the head to make hair.
8. You can sit your scarecrow on a chair, rest it against a wall or tie it to a stake in the ground (Put the clothes on over the stake to hide it.)
Then you'll have to give him/her a name! Meet JoyCrow and RossCrow.
Do you have a scarecrow in your garden? If so, I'd love to hear about it, especially if you wrote about it on your own blog. Did you build it yourself? If you don't have one, would you consider building one now?
Kids; I want photo's ok?..If you send me a photo of you building your scarecrow I will publish it next time I write.
