Stuck for ideas to entertain the kids during lockdown? Look no further than your kitchen cupboards.
If you’re thinking you’ve been there, done that – there’s only so much bread and cakes you can bake, after all – you might like to try a little gardening project using fruit and vegetable scraps.
Planting scraps can be a fun, educational and, best of all, cheap way to keep kids busy at home and teach them about how their food is grown.
You don’t need any fancy equipment or a garden either – just a window sill, some standard potting soil, available at most supermarkets, a few small plant pots and your usual kitchen utensils.
