Gardening Fun With The Kids

We’ve been doing a lot of work out in our back garden lately. So, the children have also been out there ‘helping’! They both love going outside, and Little Man can actually only be lured back inside with the promise of food!

Boo’s enjoyed planting sunflower seeds with her auntie…


and tending to her own mini-garden…

Little Man has spent a fair bit of time playing with his mud-pie kitchen. Mud and kitchen utensils are a perfect mix for toddlers 🙂

And they’ve generally been playing, balls, golf, running about, jumping, exploring, finding earth worms and ladybirds – you name it, they’ve been doing it!

It’s nice to have this glimpse of summer. Last year, Little Man was too young to be racing about the garden, whereas this year, I’m seeing plenty of al fresco lunches, paddling pool action, tuff spot adventures and listening to them both playing and squealing with delight whilst I tend my newly landscaped garden. It’s also the last summer that we’ll have like this, as Boo starts school in September. Yes, I know she’ll have after school and holidays and weekends, but it’s not the same as seemingly endless days together, so we will be making it count out there.

  1. They look like they are having lots of fun. The photograph where they are holding hands is precious! I love playing in the garden with my little one letting off steam. Hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂

  2. Gorgeous photos, love that Boo has her own little patch, and adore the mud pie kitchen! Gardening is so good for the soul, and a wonderful thing to involve the kids in. I’m going to be doing some planing with M this weekend, really looking forward to it xx

  3. I love that last photo of the of the pair of them walking together. Priceless. They are going to get so much out of the garden this yeaer. #CountryKids

  4. Love that last photo. A priceless one. Your garden is so pretty and you have this great toys that my son wants haha. Maybe you should invite him for tea. He is on ly lap now and he wants me to buy him a playhouse =P #countrykids

    1. Oh no, I didn’t mean to spark him nagging for a playhouse!! We were lucky as friends were throwing that one out so gave it to us :)x

  5. Looks like you had a lot of fun. There definitely is something about summer. Don’t you find the kids are just so much more content pottering about outside than they ever are inside? I know mine is!

  6. Your children are going to have such an amazing Summer! LP is constantly off exploring our garden but Little Man is still a bit small – Next summer he’ll have a great time! x

    1. Yes, it does make a big difference that year, when they’re so small. But next year – he’ll be off! x

  7. lovely pictures. we love being out in the garden, cant wait for the ‘proper sun’ (if we ever get any!) #letkidsbekids

  8. I can’t get over how nice the weathers been this Spring. It’s so nice to be able to just open the back door and let them get outside isn’t it?

  9. I like the idea of the mud pie kitchen – now I wish I had a backyard! The mini garden is a good idea too, and I’m sure Boo loves it 🙂 #LetKidsBeKids

  10. Sounds like the your children are having a fantastic time in the garden. I do love the sound of that mudpie kitchen, children’s heaven! It’s great that they love being outside so much.
