A Children’s Garden
Few things are more rewarding than planting a garden. What was once naked soil can be turned into a cheerful flowerbed with little more than imagination, seed and a spade. Watching nature magically transform from a seed to a plant is truly a miracle. Planting a garden has endless benefits, an outdoor area specifically for children is not only easy to achieve, but also provides a wonderful outdoor classroom. Mother nature is an excellent teacher, from patience and nurturing to seasonal changes and biodiversity. Studies suggest that healthy soil contains bacterium which stimulate serotonin making you feel both happier and more relaxed. All the more reason to get outdoor and dirty. Children are surprisingly satisfied with the simplest things when allowed the space for their imaginations to fill the gaps.
