Looking for fun, low-cost activities for your lunchtime garden club that are suitable for large numbers of children and a wide range of ages and abilities? Then you’ve come to the right place!

Our ever popular Garden Club pack has recently been updated and expanded with more green grubby goodness…… it now contains 15 fully supported indoor and outdoor garden and nature club activities. Each activity includes a ‘quick glance task card’ (designed so you can see at a glance whether the activity is an indoor or outdoor activity, what materials you’ll need to gather and what you and the children will need to complete the activity) as well as basic step by step instructions that are broken down into appropriate session lengths.

Please check out the preview for a closer look at the resources in this pack!
