Hamish and I love to spend our time ouside and starting a little garden with him has been a goal since I bough him home from hospital.
And whilst we’ve done a few little gardening projects, I really wanted him to be able to enjoy his new hobby with kiddy sized garden tools.
So, when I saw the stunning little garden kit from Practical presents, I knew I’d found the perfect way to start his hobby.
Who is practical presents ?
Practical presents is owned by a mom who understands the practicality of including quality essentials without breaking the budget but who is also mindful of the excitement of the little ones opening their gift.
With a range of gifts that suit most price ranges you can find practical gift hampers for a mom to be , toddlers and even for the young adult moving on their own for the first time.
I love that not only is the pricing affordable but these gift boxes can be ordered online and delivered to the child as a fun way for a distant relative, like a grandparent or aunt, to send a memory making activity.

Why you should Garden with kids
Gardening with children promotes responsibility, a love of nature and helps to strengthen the child/parent bond.
A child also learns early biology by understanding the plant life cycle and learning how to care for plants.
Our gardening experience
Hamish was very excited when we planted our little pot and there was so much giggling as he slowly dropped little stones into the pot.
Next he filled the pot with some soil, added some seeds and watered everything ,while I explained how the flower was going to grow from a seed to a plant but it needed sunlight and water.
The watering can is his absolute favourite part of this little garden kit.
When we had finished he carried the pot inside and asked about eight times if the flower had grown yet.
Wish me luck as we wait for the first seed to sprout.
* garden update …..Unfortunately Hamish overly loved his plant and gave it far to much water, so we are currently trying a second time to grow some seeds.
