1. START A MINI VEGETABLE PLOT
Growing food from seeds is a lovely way to learn about propagation, and where our food comes from. Whilst April is the main sowing season, there are still a few varieties you can direct sow. Have a go with winter lettuce, radishes, spinach, swiss chard, parsley, and coriander.

2. CARE FOR AN INDOOR HERB GARDEN
If you don’t have the space outside, or have run out of rainy day activities, caring for indoor herbs is a great way to entertain your kids and link living plants to the food on their plates. Start herbs such as basil, coriander, or parsley from seed, or buy a small plant from the supermarket, and involve children with watering, harvesting leaves, and cooking meals using the herbs they have grown.
