If you can’t get out in the garden, play some games until the rain (or the snow) stops. Suzanne Elvidge with ten gardening and plant games.
All games are free downloads or free to play.
Some games require your browser to have a 'plug in' for Shockwave, Flash or Java.
To play a game, simply click on its name. If you are a parent, we advise you to try the game and the site it's on first before letting your kids play them, to make sure you're happy. (And, don't forget, you can also find great games for kids in our own Global Gang area)
When downloading games from the Internet, don't forget to keep your anti-virus and anti-spyware software up to date.
The Great Plant Escape
Help Detective LePlant, Bud and Sprout unravel plant mysteries, and learn about plants and growing. And you can even play this one in Spanish.
The garden is growing fast – move the plants to be in rows of five or more to clear some space. However, there must be a clear path to move the plant, and more new plants grow every time you move an old one.
Garden colouring book
Simply click on the colour and then click on parts of the picture (have to say, pink peas look very odd…)
The Garden Game
Designed as an English teaching tool, you type in the names of the objects you see, and click ‘check’. The more you get right, the prettier the garden gets.
