A loving family.  Welcome to Part 5 of How the Forest Came to Be...


The end of Zoe’s story showed us how everyone can get along and live as a community together, however different we all are.

Zoe was inspired to go outside into her back yard to create a sharing garden for as many creatures as she could think of. Her miniature garden was going to include leaves for the caterpillars, stones for the beetles and soil for the worms.

In this activity the children will make miniature sharing gardens. This is a lovely exercise to encourage mindfulness. The gardens can be as simple or detailed as resources enable. You can involve the children in gathering , or gather them in advance yourself.
