Fall In Love With “Plant A Flower Day” With Wilko

Fall In Love With Plant A Flower Day With Wilko

Apparently, it is Plant A Flower Day this Sunday 12th March!

My kids and I have been such busy bees over the past few weeks. We have been sowing some greens and some flower seeds into paper cups which we recycled from Ethan’s Birthday Party a few weeks back.

Now, it’s thriving and we are very excited by the prospect that we can actually grow something!

On Ethan’s Birthday, we also got everyone to do their own Dinosaur Patch out of recycled milk carton (pre-drilled by myself with several holes at the bottom) and let the kids choose their own seeds to sow.

To keep a track of what’s what and who’s who we kept the front packages’ names and used them to label the plants with wooden sticks from the craft section.

Everyone went home with their own Dinosaur Patch which I thought it was a rather neat idea as when the flower grows it will reminds the kids of Ethan’s Birthday Party.

Last week, I decided it was time to give the little plants a space of its own so I bought one of Wilko 4 Tier Mini Greenhouse to place these growing plants in. It was on a reduced price to £10 from £13. Bargain!

So here is a little vlog I made to show you how easily it was to assembled it. Please note that I had to change the background slightly, as I was filming outside until – the sky decided to open up. Just so typical! lol!

Thank you for reading and watching!

Don’t forget to subscribe our YouTube channel here!

There is now a place where Evelyn likes to water the plants everyday after she return from nursery mornings. It has become her little babies!

Wilko also provide a downloadable Vegetable and Herb Growing Calendar for your connivence too!

Do you think your kiddos would like to plant a flower or two?

This is not a sponsor post but I thought it was such a lovely idea to get the kids involved with loving nature.

    Good idea about labelling the plants so that there are no arguments. Let’s hope the weather is good on 12th so that we can all get outdoors and do some planting…the mini greenhouse is a great idea!

      Yes, they get to choose their own seeds to plant to. It was a great hit. Thank you for hosting. x

    I love the dinosaur patch idea, that’s brilliant! The mini green house, looks great and such great value – I’ll definitely be checking that out. My sons love to help in the garden, can’t wait to get out there now that the weather is cheering up a little. #SnappedUp

    Such a great use of a milk carton and I love the dinosaur idea. This is a perfect way to make planting fun for kids and get them engaged in nature and growing foods and flowers. I hope your growing efforts are rewarded. Cute little Elmer with the remaining half of the milk carton too!

    Thank you for sharing at #Trash2Treasure

      I hope we will be rewarded too! Oh yes! Thanks. The kids also enjoyed themselves making their own Elmers too. Thank you for hosting. x

    Such a fabulous idea, specially for a birthday and it seems easy enough. I must try to plant some too with the kids.

    Some lovely ideas here. I love planting with wee ones they get so excited and actually appreciate what is going on. #globalblogging

    Such a fun party idea! We do not typically have good luck with planting seeds; we’ll get green sprouts but I’m hopeless when it comes to keeping plants alive.

    We tried growing things in our garden last year and the kids were so excited to dig up the radishes etc. Sadly most of it was dug up by an annoying cat 🙁 Time to try again ! #GlobalBlogging

    • 14/03/2017 / 2:33 am

      Oh no!! We have a cat from next door too. But so far so good – no damaged yet. x

    Such a lovely thing to do with children – they will really enjoy watching them grow, and it’s a great way to get them outdoors too. Thanks for linking this up with us at the #SnappedUp linky!

    • 16/03/2017 / 7:41 pm

      Absolutely! They are really excited about it. Thank you for hosting. x

    Wonderful to reuse the party cups as pots. Great idea to do it as a birthday party activity too. I’m sure they are going to love seeing their plants grow. My children started off like this, but now help me each year in the kitchen garden. Not just seeds that grow. Hopefully their interest too. #Trash2Treasure

    • 16/03/2017 / 7:45 pm

      Wow! How wonderful! Hopefully, my kids will follow suit! Thank you for popping by. x

    This is the cutest idea! I love the idea of separating the children’s flowers in different tubs and using labels. Also putting little animals into each pot. My kids would love this. Pinned!! Bring on Spring please!!!!! Thanks for sharing with us Su!! #globalblogging

      It’s a pleasure. I’m glad that you like it. It is very exciting that something actually grows in our garden. x

    Love this date, love the dinosaurs! I can’t wait to get planting, we have been waiting for this summertime hate to dissipate before getting into planting. Even today it is still 32 degrees celsius it’s just to hot to plant. #mg

    I love this! Teach the kids to grow, get their hands dirty and respect the planet all in one fun lesson! Brilliant! Off to do that today Su! Love this! #globalblogging #fabfridaypost xoxo

    What a great idea to combine their passion of dinosaurs with nature. Just hope the dinosaurs don’t munch on the vegetation. #Trash2Treasure

    I love the dinosaur patch idea! We’ve been busy planting lots of seeds recently too, looking forward to watching them grow!
