Getting your children outdoors on weekends or during school holidays can be a little bit easier with some fun gardening projects.
Bunnings National Garden Tools Buyer Cameron Rae, provides his top tips on keeping the kids entertained in the garden this autumn.
● Bunnings has a great range of easy and entertaining DIY projects, including worm farms, vegetable and herb garden beds, composting and much more.
● The best way to teach children about the importance of sustainability is by taking on sustainable practices around the home. You can make this fun by encouraging them to get involved and giving them a project to do.
● Ask your children what they would like to do, be it planting some flowers or vegies or even building a worm farm — allowing them to choose a project will make it more satisfying when they have completed their task.
● Be prepared for mess - grubby fingers, dirty shoeprints in the home and messy clothes are guaranteed after long days spent in the garden.
It might be a good idea to have a broom, mop or towel readily available to combat mess and for quick clean-ups.
● Throughout the school holidays, Bunnings will run free school holiday DIY workshops designed specifically for kids.
Kids can be entertained while also developing their DIY skills and taking home their very own creation.
