Use your garden diary to write or draw things you notice in your garden each month.

What you’ll need

  • A4 plain and lined paper
  • A4 coloured paper
  • A ribbon or stapler
  • Pens or pencils

How to make it

  1. Take some pieces of A4 paper (as many as you need), and fold them in half to make a book. Fold a piece of coloured paper for the cover.
  2. You can tie your book together by using a piece of ribbon or stapling along the spine. ​Decorate the front cover to make it your special book.
  3. You can use it to record which seeds you’ve sown, how well they have grown and if you grew vegetables, did they taste yummy?
