A Bean or Sweet Pea Tepee

This is really a project for all the family. Build a tepee for climbing plants, and when the tepee is completely covered you can put a rug or blanket on the floor inside it and you will have your own space!

This is the subject of Project No 4: A Bean or Sweet Pea Tepee on the VPA Young Gardeners page. Click or tap on the project link to go straight there and take a look!

Note to Parents

These projects have been carefully put together by a team of us at the VPA to encourage all our children to have fun while learning.  Aspects of each project are designed to highlight growing and nutrition, environmental awareness, wildlife and even elements of maths, science, nature and history.  With all these tools we hope to encourage a new generation of gardeners who will gain positive attitudes in their lives to health, both physical and mental; and who will learn the relaxation to be found in gardening as well as the productivity and the joy of eating something that they have grown themselves.
