Make a miniature garden – Spring crafts

This is such a lovely Spring craft.. Let your child’s imagination unfold.

You could use a tray or a box as your garden base. Pebbles can make a path way, a small mirror or silver foil can make a stream or a pond.  Dolls furniture from a dolls house could make a park bench or a deck chair.  A little stick could make a tree.  Some pebbles could be your rockery and bits of fern could be the mossy grass.  Tiny little walls could be built from  chopped up sticks and teeny violas could be the plants. Even little fairies or dolls could inhabit this magic little garden.

Hours of fun and a way to reconnect with gardens this spring time! Here is ours!
