What a cute little ferry garden in a bucket, perfect for creative play in your outdoor classroom. These invite kids to stretch their imaginations while fostering a deeper connection to the natural world, both of which are increasingly important as we help prepare children for the future they will later face.

fun idea -- would make more of an actual play area than a fairy display. If my kids are into pretending, I want to make space in the garden for that.

We have recently sorted our provision in the water tray to ensure a focus on #finemotorskills primary over than #grossmotorskills, so we enhanced the water tray by adding a washing line. There was barely space to wash the clothes in the end as everyone wanted to join in. As well as wringing the clothes of water and in turn developing gross motor skills they also developed their fine motor skills by squeezing open the pegs! Also lots of fun!
