Bloomin’ Kids

A piece of artwork featuring butterflies

Find out more about the Bloomin' Kids butterfly art competition and Easter seed giveaway.


Bloomin’ Kids Gardening workshops are on hold until the Autumn. Instead, we are running a Butterfly art competition and launching some videos to help children plant seeds at home.

Bloomin’ Kids Butterfly Art Competition

This Easter children can create their own artwork at home using a choice of materials and enter the competition.

They can make paintings, drawings, collage pictures, mobiles etc.  They may need some help from an adult to assemble the materials but the work and ideas must be their own.

  • The finished artwork should be no larger than 30cm x 40cm.
  • There are two age categories 4-7 year old and 8-11 year old.
  • Send a photo of the finished artwork to bloom@farnham.gov.uk with your children’s name, age and contact telephone number.
  • There will be prizes given for the best butterfly artwork and some of them will be displayed around the Town at a later date. Please keep the artwork  safe in case we need the original.
  • The closing date for entries is Sunday April 18 2021.

Why not get the children planting out some seeds this Easter?

Watch our easy ‘how to’ videos for tips on planting potatoes, sunflower, poppies, peas and tomatoes.

Easter Seed giveaway

There are many simple ways to grow your own food and flowers. Children will benefit from watching them grow and eating the produce.

Use recycled materials such as toilet rolls,  plastic trays and even an old shopping bag.

This Easter we have a limited number of free seed packs to give away to Bloomin’ Kids in Farnham. There are Californian Poppies and Red Cherry tomatos. Please fill out the form to receive a pack of free seeds for your family.
