Create a kids dinosaur garden

Plastic dinosaurs make great toys. Despite their prehistoric age, they are a favourite for many children. They are also a great way to turn your garden (or small parts of it) into an engaging space for adventure and play.

Find a sheltered part of the garden, use pebbles to create a small riverbed, surrounded by Jurassic looking plants; mosses, ferns, small palms and grassy plants such as mondo grass or liriope. Involve your children in the process by taking them shopping for your new plants and including their favourite dinosaur toys. Add a few larger rocks and some small logs and hang some flying pterodactyls from larger plants or stakes for an extra prehistoric touch.

Children will love playing with their dinosaurs in this magical outdoor space.
