A Willow and Wild Box is a nature inspired monthly subscription box aimed at children aged 3-8 years old. I love my garden and being outside, and I am quite passionate about encouraging my kids to love it too, so the theme of these boxes really appealed to me.
This is lovely activity for the kids to do. It involves two of my favourite things: crafting and growing plants from seed. Making these cute Cress Egg Heads is a really cool way to introduce the concept of food growing from seeds to our children. You can do this activity all year round, and as it only requires a small area of your windowsill it is something everyone can do.

The weather has been glorious the last few days and it’s a great time to get the kids away from the TV, laptop or whatever electronic device that has their attention , and get them out into the garden. If you need more inspiration why you and the rest of the family should spend more time outside then read on………
