Did you know that earth worms have the power to lift stones that weight 50 times their own weight?
These are the sort of snippets that your little green-fingered darlings will delight you with if you sign them up to the Dobbies Little Seedlings Club! It's a free-to-join gardening club for children aged between 4–10 years, which meets on the first Sunday of every month in Dobbies Garden Centre throughout the UK.
What a totally brilliant idea. I just love the idea of something like this which actually means meeting up with other people and making new friends - that seems to be a bit of a rarity in a world where so much is online and virtual.
Your Little Seedlings members will learn about plants, wildlife and the environment AND they'll even get a free welcome pack when they join.
The pack includes:
- An attendance card - members will even receive a certificate after their third, sixth and twelfth workshop attendance
- Stickers (because no club membership is complete without stickers...)
- Little lunch vouchers for one half-price children’s hot meal to be used on the day of each Little Seedlings Club event.
- And folder to keep everything in. (And you know how much kids love folders...)
So what are you waiting for?
Get 'em all signed up and have an hour to yourself in the Dobbies cafe on a Sunday once a month, followed by lunch with your Little Seedling which won't break the bank!
