Gardening is a fun, healthy activity for children which allows children to learn about the outdoor environment, science and nature. Planters provide a fantastic way to bring this science and nature to the playground whilst also encouraging explorative play. Children love getting mucky so digging around in the soil and planting seeds to watch grow is a great learning tool whilst getting valuable fresh air. Children can learn and understand about science of plants, animals, nutrition and how the weather and environment can affect these factors.
The children can paint the planters adding their own creative and imaginative touch whilst adding some fun colour to the playground. Seats can also be incorporated into the planters giving them further practicality as well as bringing a fun way to learning.
