Make a magic garden

Suitable for:0 to 5

Warm up your body and imagination by making a magic garden.

To make a magic garden start by asking and thinking about...

What is in your garden?

What will it look like?

Next, clear a space where your garden will go.

Make your garden by drawing the things that will go inside it, or try using objects from around the house. Could a mirror become a pond?

Place each drawing or object, like a map, in the space.

Build your garden and bring it to life!

What can you do in your magic garden?
