Tom Thumb Garden

One to keep under tens occupied for hours. All you need to start is a baking tray lined with silver foil.

This is small-scale garden design, and If the kids need inspiration, suggest they build a fairy garden or farmyard, a dinosaur forest or a moonscape for an alien invasion.

Using the baking tray, they go round the garden filling it with soil, grass, moss, flowers, twigs, shells, stones, bark – whatever’s to hand – to turn their miniature outdoor space into a magical place.
