Have you found that sometimes when organising activities for toddlers and children that it is easy to over complicate it? Whether it’s looking for the lego or craft materials or something else it can all get too hard when you’re busy and just want to get something going now, to keep them occupied for a while!

If this sounds familiar then you’re going to love this week’s episode where I’m talking with guest Rachel Strivelli. Rachel is an Intuitive, writer and organic gardening coach.

You’ll hear us talk about therapeutic gardening for kids and specifically:-

  • How introducing your kids to gardening gives them that all important connection with the earth and nature.
  • How spending time in your yard or garden with your kids gardening is an activity in itself requiring no planning or materials.
  • How your child will learn to calm themselves and relax in their outdoor surroundings.

And much more.
