On Sunday we were round at my parents' house and my children helped to clear up the grass cuttings from a fortnight's lawn growth! Its one of those simple yet hard little jobs that they seem to enjoy and it all helps to get the grass clear quicker. Although my daughter seemed to think that creating a nest with the cuttings and having a snooze in the sun is part of the plan:
So little brother took over and manfully brushed the cuttings off the grass onto the path for granny to put in the compost bin:
Then he was lifted into the compost bin to trample it all down as the bin was rather full. It made for a cosy little nest:
And he could pretend to hide in the bin:
As he was being supervised too he had a chance to see what it was like inside the bin with the lid closed!
What jobs in the garden do your children help with?
