Gardening activities

Want the perfect wildlife garden? Download some of our activity sheets below.

Visit the Wildlife Watch website for lots more great things to do in the garden. Not that these are just activities to do with the kids - every garden can benefit from a bumblebee nest or a mini meadow. And even if you haven't got a garden you can still create a mini nature reserve! Other fantastic wildlife gardening resources can be found at www.wildaboutgardens.org.uk or on the London Wildlife Trust website.
