Tots Celebrating Nature this Lockdown

Updated: Oct 26, 2020

We challenged followers, families and wineries to participate in our first Global Garden Biodiversity Challenge and stand a chance to be featured in our upcoming blogs!

The goal? To appreciate the natural beauty and biodiversity around us and provide everyone at home with a view of the beautiful outdoors while we were locked away!

Tots were kept busy and educated during lock-down by participating in this fun challenge! From spotting all the nature around them to starting their own garden list!

Winners of the first Global Garden Biodiversity Challenge: Tots and their Garden Art Category

Our mom and tot winner goes to @mesh2snap in Stellenbosch who shared her joy for her garden with her son during the first 3 weeks of lock-down.

Thank you to @mesh2snap for joining our Global Garden Biodiversity Challenge 2020!

She arranged a scavenger hunt for her tot and a rainbow treasure hunt in the garden, as well as enjoying beautiful lunches and teas out in the garden among the flowers and autumn leaves.

Tots and their Garden Art

My London friends. Look at this 8-year old boy’s incredible lock-down artwork of the beautiful creatures found in his garden in Surbiton, London Town, UK.

Thank you so much @claraanderson12 and kids for your stunning nature

Beautiful children’s artwork of the Southern Boubou! A special garden bird and visitor in Southern Africa. So glad you @jill.lee.welsh and your kids joined our challenge and started their twitcher journey.

Stunning homemade felt birds all the way in London

Parents keeping their kids busy with home schooling this lock-down and some at-home biodiversity arts and crafts.

We also encouraged our own tots to get in touch with Mother Nature.

The WineTots have their first go at a watercolour of an African Fish Eagle with a live zoom art lesson with their Aunty in London!

This art was then used to cover a box for Soap 4 Donations at the local Clicks in Plettenberg Bay!

Please also check out the PlettAid Video on our home page showcasing all the fantastic community work that is being done to support the Plettenberg Bay community during lock-down in South Africa.

Ian and I enjoyed the wonderful art! What a great initiative! Our garden has been such a boon at this time (and always). Ian collected a bit of last winter’s double collared sunbird nest today. I haven’t found this year’s nest yet, though the birds are very busy in the garden!


My garden is my sanctuary during lockdown. It is amazing if you can involve your kids in the garden and teach them about nature. If you create garden projects and make them part of it, they seem to show more interest.


Awesome art! 🤩
