Veena has been working with recycled materials to realise children’s ideas for the perfect garden.
First they brainstormed what a good garden should be like.
Then the children worked in groups to imagine what a Garden could look like. They were able to share and discuss their ideas.
Here are the finished plans.
The children then created a great variety of gardens using mainly recycled materials like polystyrene, cardboard, sticks, seedpots, sand and tissue paper.
We used toothpicks, pegs and cotton buds to create fences and flowers. Children enjoyed solving problems and using their creativity to come up with new ideas with the materials they had to hand.
Children collaborated on gardens as they reached different stages.
Once all the gardens were done we made little easter nests with a simple paper weaving technique.
