How does your garden grow?

Getting ready

Ask an adult to play some music while you all dance.

Then ask the adult to stop the music every so often and call out the name of a Grub Gang character.

When you hear the name, mime the gardening activity that the character is doing.

You start with three lives – if you do the wrong mime, you lose a life!

Why not play this game indoors or on a rainy day?

Pretend you are digging up some soil to make it nice and loose for planting vegetables!

Pretend to rake the soil.

Stretch your arms forward then bring them back towards you over and over again.

Pretend to plant a plant.

Kneel down and balance on one foot, holding your arms out in front of you.

Pretend to push a wheelbarrow full of the fruit and veg you have grown – imagine it’s really heavy!
