I often think that garden centres are right up there amongst some of my favourite places, especially as a Mum with a young family!
I love wandering along the aisles of plants and flowers, making new discoveries and planning projects for my own garden. However, these days there are so much more to garden centres than plants, and long gone are the days when you only visited during the spring and summer months! All of my local garden centres (especially the Millbrook chain) offer year round attractions, gorgeous Christmas gift shops and displays, seasonal activities, lovely coffee shops and plenty to entertain children throughout the year.
Children’s Crafts at Millbrook Garden Centre
We love taking our children out at weekends and a visit to a local garden centre often features on our weekend ‘to-do’ list. Both our children have inherited our love of nature and the outdoors, and both enjoy art and craft activities too, so a visit to our local Millbrook garden centre for a craft activity at half-term seemed a win-win option!
Our children opted for a bird house craft activity and both had great fun!
When we arrived everything was set up and ready to go. All the resources were on the tables and as soon as the majority of children had arrived for the pre-booked session they were allowed to start creating their bold, bright and beautiful bird houses!
My husband and I were there and had a surprisingly restful morning, watching the craft activity whilst treating ourselves to a drink and a pastry! The children were given a complimentary drink and biscuit during the activity and everyone, parents and children alike, really enjoyed the session!
We can’t wait to book a few more craft sessions for Easter, the perfect opportunity to do a little plant shopping too!
Why not pop along to your local garden centre, you’ll be surprised at what they have to offer families all year round!
