Garden activities for the whole family to enjoy

The Pocket Book of Garden Experiments by Helen Pilcher

Looking for fun activities to keep the kids amused while staying at home? The Pocket Book of Garden Experiments by Helen Pilcher is packed full of ideas and perfect for families wanting to spend some quality time together.

Bring out your inner-scientist, stretch your imagination and have a go at one of 80 experiments taking inspiration from the natural world and the fascinating things that live in it. From creating an ecosystem in a jar to writing in invisible ink – or even turning potatoes into slime! – there’s something here for everyone.

The activities can be carried out in your back garden, at the kitchen sink or when you’re out for your daily walk, with easy to follow instructions charmingly illustrated throughout the book.

Families can enjoy hours of fun trying out the experiments – just like this one, showing how easy it is to make a butterfly feeder for your garden.
