    Family Competition

    Friends of the Earth came up with this great idea for helping others and the environment during the summer holidays…

    “Don’t pack loads of toys for your trip. Instead, when you arrive at your holiday destination, go into the local charity shop and buy some toys. Let the kids play with them on holiday and then before you leave donate them back. Think of it like a toy library while helping a charity make some money.”

    For this months family competition we would like to hear of anything you are up to over the summer to help others or the environment where you live….. Maybe you’re starting to recycle your rainwater,  growing flowers for butterflies or perhaps volunteering with a local wildlife group…. 

    Whatever you are up to, tell us in a few words and the best entry will win a Solar Insect Theatre – perfect for the study of all sorts of butterflies, moths and other flying insects.

    Send your entries to competitions@gardeningwithchildren.co.uk, or complete the form available here and pop it in the post to us.  All entries need to arrive with us by 31st July 2010.
