The summer holidays have begun, why not get your little ones involved in some garden wildlife fun.
Housing developers Cala Homes have worked with the SSPCA to you create fun garden project ideas for children that wildlife will thank them for, with insights including:
- Loss of habitat is threatening British wildlife, but your garden can be a welcome home.
- Teaching your kids the importance of sustaining the world’s ecosystems is vital to preventing species from going extinct.
- Garden projects will encourage your kids to spend time playing outside and can allow children to develop self-confidence, self-esteem, and independence.
- Cala Homes have created a free downloadable activity pack with some fun projects to help encourage your kids to get involved.
Scottish SPCA chief superintendent, Mike Flynn said “We hope our tips will give people lots of inspiration on how to make their garden a haven for wildlife this summer. Please enjoy the summer months, but please also be vigilant so that visiting wildlife can too.”
