Ok let’s get to it!
Have a go at these gifts and show your child what is beyond their phone screen.
This butterfly habitat is recommended for ages 4+.
The pop-up tent style enclosure is a 30cm tall mesh habitat, perfect for keeping and viewing butterflies.
It is super simple to set up and can be reused over and over.
I’d recommend making sure there is a space to put the tent so it’s not getting knocked over once you place your caterpillars inside.
It also needs to be somewhere it can be seen so the kids don’t forget to feed them with fresh leaves each day. (Oops)
The set includes; Feeding Pipette, complete Instruction Guide, A voucher for a cup of 5 live caterpillars, which can be ordered online once you’ve set up the enclosure.
Although we usually find cabbage white butterflies in the garden and use those.
The kids ask for this to be set up year after year. One of our favourites.
A Fairy Garden.
This beautiful set is one of Amazon’s top gardening gifts.
This is a fantastic little kit that is so easy for your child to set up or you can do it together.
It comes with everything you need to set up your own mini garden, well all except water! Included; Potting dish, enchanted flower house, Flowers, Butterflies, Potting soil, and Seeds.
This kit will give your child the chance to show his or her creativity as they paint and decorate their fairy garden.
It’s a fantastic set to start your kids off in gardening as they can let their imagination run wild.
They can decorate, plant, sow and design it all themselves.
You could also use your own seeds and keep adapting and growing it. When we received this one, we used fake grass on the bottom instead of sowing the grass seed so we could play with it over the winter.
There’s also different sets that you can get to add to your mini fairy garden.
Recommended for kids age 4 but with a little help and supervision I think it’s open to all.
