We may not be able to turn water into wine, but children can turn stones into seeds this October and November at Squire’s Garden Centres!
The garden centre is asking children under 16 to paint a pebble or stone to look like a vegetable. They can pick up a free pebble from Squire’s Information Desk, or use one of their own, then paint it at home to look like their favourite (or not so favourite!) vegetable. They could even bring it to life by adding a little face too!
To ensure your pebble looks its best Squire’s suggest varnishing it, as the painted pebbles will be displayed outside.
Painted pebbles should be handed in at the Information Desk at Squire’s Garden Centres between 1st October and 8th November, then children will be rewarded with a free pack of vegetable seeds! Soon your child could be growing tomatoes, courgettes, cabbages or even Brussels sprouts (seeds subject to availability). It’s a great introduction to vegetable gardening, and may even get some fussy eaters to eat their greens!
Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres said; “This is a fun home craft and gardening activity that I think children will really enjoy, and it gives them a great introduction into the world of grow your own. Thank you to Mr. Fothergill’s and Thompson & Morgan for kindly donating the seed packs. I look forward to seeing all the wonderful creations that children make.”
