It isn't just the vegetable gardens that flourish at Kidsfirst Kindergartens, so do imaginations - as these examples show...
SOME OF OUR STORIES
Both kindys have asked for parents and children to donate old gumboots to the kindy, which are then turned into pot plants.
Filled with all sorts of beautiful flowers throughout the seasons, these decorate the fence at Kidsfirst Greymouth, and the verandah at Kidsfirst Halswell and many other kindergartens too.
We love their kiwi ingenuity and the Kidsfirst can-do attitude when it comes to these sorts of things. Make sure you pop round to check them out!
In a remarkably 'kiwi' use of resources, both Kidsfirst Halwswell and Kidsfirst Greymouth are using gumboot pot plants to brighten up their kindys.
