Make a garden composter

Kids are all about helping the environment so why not enjoy working on a project together in the garden! By building this easy and simple garden composter you and your kids will help create good soil which will grown happy and healthy plants.

What you need:

  • large plastic rubbish bin with lid
  • utility knife
  • hammer
  • nail

Number of players:


Cut the base out of the rubbish bin with a knife.

Use the hammer and nail to punch holes about 20cm apart in separate circles around the middle, top and bottom of the bin.

Fill the bin with food scraps and garden cuttings and let it slowly decompose.

Over time the materials will turn into rich fertiliser for you to spread on your garden beds.

Not only will the kids love this project, the plants will love the results!
