July in the garden

July is another busy month in the garden. Our garden is really taking shape right now. We’ve been harvesting strawberries, herbs and red currants. You can continue to sow direct carrots, beetroots and lettuce this month. Remember to sow at intervals to ensure there is always some to harvest when you want it. Remember it’s never too late for starting gardening with children. You could even start building a raised vegetable bed for next year.

Don’t forget to keep caring for your plants and enjoying the harvest. Or how about visiting your local pick your own farm? Don’t forget to keep encouraging wildlife into your garden.  

July outdoor activities

July is also a great time for spending more time outdoors with children. Playing in the garden, walking in the woods, going camping, visiting the beach or your favourite outdoor day out.  You might find my post on things to do on a walk with kids useful.

With the long school holidays looming you may want to think about some activities. I’ve put together a list of 100 outdoor activities for kids and also 50 fun things to do outside at home.

July on the bookshelves

There are so many summer themes in children’s books. Farm animals, zoo animals, bugs and butterflies, holidays, beach trips, gardening and much more.

If you have a child starting school this September you may be starting to prepare them or perhaps you want to find out what to expect. I share my favourite books for preparing your child for starting school in this post.

July ideas for creating and playing

There are lots of opportunities for craft and play in summer. Both indoors and outdoors. Possible themes are the weather, butterflies, bugs, farm animals, birds and seaside.

I love that sensory play and art activities can be done outside in the summer months, making the cleanup process a lot simpler.

Some of our favourite activities for the summer months are –
