Entice the Senses with a Sensory Garden for Kids
Themed gardens can add even more interest to the garden by engaging your child’s imagination and creativity. Kids have a great imagination – why not ask them what type of themed garden they would like? They will probably surprise you with what they say!

Get Creative with a DIY Fairy Garden for Kids
Another classical themed children’s garden is a children’s fairy garden. Gardens can be magical places and they are great for imaginative play. They can be very easy to make and don’t have to cost a fortune! If you only have a small space one of the easiest places to create a DIY fairy garden for kids is in a planter or an old birdbath. This makes it easy for you to keep an eye on all the fairy parties and maybe the kids will notice a few things have changed in their fairy garden overnight…
Get Lost in a Children's Butterfly Garden
My favourite themed garden is a butterfly garden for kids. Butterflies are magical creatures to children! They bring about a sense of fascination and joy. Being able to track their flight and admire their different colours and patterns can leave one in awe. There is alot for kids to learn about butterflies – their lifecycle from caterpillar to butterfly as well as the important role they play in the pollination of our plants. So how do you attract butterflies to your garden? The key is native plants! To learn more about creating a children’s butterfly garden click here.
