This summer Homebase has teamed up with brothers Lee and Dale aka The Skinny Jean Gardeners to get kids outside creating, painting, planting, growing and most importantly, having fun.
Whatever the size of your garden they’ve thought up some amazingly creative activities from making painted-portrait plant pots to growing a runner bean teepee.
In Lee and Dale’s own words: ‘Don’t be a glass-eyed zombie this summer!’ Kids can enjoy the fresh air and sense of achievement and pride that comes from getting out into the garden and having room to grow.’
37%* of parents worry that their children will have too much screen time this summer.

Kids will love perking up terracotta pots with funny faces and hilarious herby hair. They can go crazy with colour and get creative with veg to perk up plain pots and make something pretty cool.
Ready, get set and get the kids growing their own veg for a fast, fresh feast. With carrots, tomatoes and herbs together you can create lots of tasty dishes and make meal times much more fun.
Wildlife really brings the garden to life and a simple way to encourage more activity is by feeding the birds. Bird feeders are so easy and fun to make and once they’re dotted around, your garden will quickly overflow with feathery friends.
