One spade for a whole summer of fun

One spade for a whole summer of fun

Alexis Ralphs Aug 21 • 7 min read

Have you thought about how you'll get through those long summer holidays? Do you have a patch of ground outside your back door, even if it's just a patio?
Yes? Then I have the answer: digging.
All you need is a spade (or a shovel, sand and a tuff spot if your space is completely paved).
Dig to the centre of the earth, look for minibeasts, enjoy the rhythm of removing spade after spade of material. Add water, leaves or sand. Bring figures and the dump truck from the toy box.
A whole summer's worth of fun.
What projects will your child start? And where might they lead?
