I have an allotment which me and the kids have our own and grow our own vegatables you know the normal thing patatoes,carrots,peas etc . They love it and its a great way to spend time with them. Seeing there faces as they pick their veg for the sunday roast is very rewarding for me and them.
The chicken coop is a new addition as we had decided to keep chickens so we can get fresh eggs every morning and the kids are so excited about it. we went to buy a chicken coop but nearly fainted at the prices and have been putting this idea off for a while trying to trick the kids into thinking its a bad idea,but i have stumbled over some great plans to make my own chicken coop.
Its great, and the bonus is there is so many to choose from that the kids are getting involved from the very start. They know what size, shape and even the colour (which by the way is going to be painted like a rainbow as they couldnt decide!) There choice not mine obviously. I know that letting them choose all these option will make them feel like its their project and then they will keep up the work after the chicken coop is finished.
So we have watched the video and fetched our wood, nails, sweets and drinks, (well we need to keep focused don’t we!) The chicken coop took no time at all really, proberly half the time if i’d done it myself but where’s the fun in that.
The kids chose the chickens and they all have names, so now all we have to do is wait for our fresh eggs. Oh and try and convince them that the colour of the chicken coop is proberly a bad choice.
