Gardening is a fun activity that provides opportunities to learn together, while encouraging love for nature and the environment. It is not just about the idea of getting outside and enjoying nature, gardening creates a great space to learn about science, nature, food, and our responsibility to care for all living things around us.
Upcycled Carton Planter
This upcycled carton planter gives you a fun opportunity to be sustainable while also being able to personalise your own flower garden. You can go ahead and decorate your carton, or keep it as is like Zianeb has for a more retro feel. Colour Changing Flower Experiment
This colour changing flower experiment is not only easy to set up, but is also very fascinating. Through this activity, you will learn how flowers absorb water through their stem so that the head of the flower is nourished. Draw your own Garden

FUN FACTS ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT
80% of the animals are unique to Australia
Aluminum can be recycled continuously, as in forever. Recycling 1 aluminum can save enough energy to run our TVs for at least 3 hours. 80 trillion aluminum cans are used by humans every year.
Cabbage has 91% water content.
Apples, onions and potatoes have the same taste. Test this by closing your nose while eating them.
An average-sized tree can provide wood enough to make 170000 pencils.
Plant roots are covered with root hairs that are used to absorb minerals and water.
Strawberry is the only fruit that has seeds on the outside. It has about an average of 200 seeds.
Insects are essential to every garden. This is because they assist in the transferring of pollen from plant to plant.
There are some insects that can tell us certain things about the weather. For example, whenever bees feel a rise in humidity, they will fly back to their hives so that they don’t get caught in any subsequent rain coming
Sunlight is very important to any garden. Sunlight helps the plants grow. Some flowers cannot survive in direct sunlight because the heat is too intense and actually burns them.
Water is also a very important part of any garden. Most gardens need to be watered frequently in order for the vegetables and flowers to grow. A desert garden, however, can die if it’s given too much water.
Soil with lots of worms in it doesn’t flood easily after heavy rain because the water drains away thanks to all the worm holes. OTHER FUN VIDEOS
