Outdoor Activities

Research has proven that imagination and creativity enhance a child's intellectual development. For example outdoor activities can enhance a child's Naturalistic Intelligence by developing their abilities to discover, understand and respect nature.

Here at Handy Hippo we have tried to source products which will keep even the most discerning young gardener or naturalist stimulated. We have a wide range of outdoor activities that you can enjoy with your young family. And whilst they are engaged in their activity they are learning about their precious environment through observation and use of their senses (seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling and moving)

Whether you chose to introduce them to the rewarding activity of gardening, planting or simply using materials like play dough, sticks and flower petals to make their own garden the benefits and possibilities are endless!

From the Young Gardener brand, consider one of the Grow Sets so you child can engage in a hands-on activity which they observe seeds, plant them and watch them grow. Allow your child to upload a photo of their plant to during the different stages of growth, a great opportunity to examine the life cycle of a plant up close and personal.

For a great learning lesson, be sure to check out all the information on the seed packets when preparing your garden. This will give so much to chat and learn about, like perennials and annuals, why some plants have to wait until later in the year to be planted outside, or what conditions are best suited to your plants.

Our Young Gardener range also includes all the tools needed, perfectly sized for children, so they can work alongside of you in the garden. Be sure to protect your child's hands and clothing with Gardening Gloves and Aprons.

Let your kids explore ideas or concepts and then watch them express it by making something to keep, entertain others or simply look at for visual pleasure.
