Transform an overgrown garden into a jungle garden for your children to play in.



Time: 30 minutes
Age: All ages
Level: Medium

Materials
Overgrown garden
Scissors
Animal figurines



Method
Choose an overgrown patch of garden you are happy for children to have full access to. I chose a succulent garden because they are hardy and look like miniature trees for the figurines to play under. You can also plant succulents directly into the lawn.



Have children use scissors to carefully trim down the weeds and grass. This is a good time for finding treasures in the garden. You may find some nice sticks, rocks, puddles or bugs. If you have succulents, you may find new baby plants growing as well.



Sometimes leaving weeds and tufts of grass can add extra elements to the play area
Once the garden has been trimmed back, add back some of the treasures you have found along with any interesting rocks or sticks you have around the place.



Introduce a collection of figurines for the children to play with in their very own Jungle Garden.
