Squire’s Garden Centres popular “Create & Grow” activities for children are back this summer holidays!
Where: Squire’s Garden Centre Washington
Dates: 22 July – 28 August 2019
Days: Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays
Times: 9am – 12.30pm
Cost: £2.50 to £6 depending on the activity + FREE activity each week
There are various craft and planting activities each week, for example, a wildlife hunt around the garden centre, planting and decorating a strawberry pot, painting a hedgehog or rabbit money box, decorating a trio of suncatchers, planting a beautiful summer pot, and decorating a pair of pebble animals. Activities cost between £2.50 and £6.
We tried it out for you last week and are now the proud owners of a good size strawberry pot -we planted three strawberry plants – decorated with glitter paint and flower and bee stickers. The kids get hands-on and place the soil and plants into the pot themselves before they have plenty of time to use their artistic flair on their finished pot.
This is a great holiday activity for the summer and will hopefully inspire the next generation of gardeners! And after all that work, finish off the afternoon with a treat at the cafe.
There are also free activities every week including spot the difference sheets, word searches, and paper mazes. Each child receives a sticker when they complete the free activity. While our glitter paint dried, we enjoyed a wildlife hunt around the centre and, of course, admired all the animals in the pet section at the same time.
Create & Grow is on from 22nd July until 28th August. Come to Squire’s anytime from 9am-12.30pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at selected centres. There’s no need to book for any of the activities, simply turn up on the day.
