Children's Book - Creativity in Kids

Cultivating Creativity

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves! At la ferme du Bourdicou we actively encourage everyone to be creative because creativity is good for the brain. Even everyday activities, such as building a new chicken house, make us feel happy and more enthusiastic. But nothing can beat seeing the beaming smiles on the faces of our visitors – young and old – when they explore the farm with us.

Happy place

We have heard so many wonderful stories from parents and relatives of children that have visited our farm. And it’s always the same – they had an amazing time and can’t stop talking about it! We have even had drawings sent to us of some of their favourite animals! So that’s why we decided to dedicate a page on our website to all the creative minds out there!

Send us an email including pictures, short stories, poems or postcards – anything at all that’s farm related. Perhaps it’s a favourite farmyard animal – sheep, chicken, duck, or maybe it’s a magical one! We’ll share as many items as we can on this page for everyone to see!

The kids should see this

One of our favourite websites, (TKSST), is a Webby Award-winning collection of over 5000 kid-friendly videos. It’s completely free and available for everyone to use. Adults can learn new stuff on there too – perhaps that’s one of the reasons why we like it so much!

Rescuing Penguin Chicks in South Africa

Most people probably think that penguins live in the cold, that they live in Antarctica. But there are actually several species that live in warmer climates.

Dr. Ludynia is based in Cape Town, South Africa, working as a part of the team at SANCCOB, a rescue service for sick and injured seabirds and abandoned seabird chicks.

What is an ecosystem?

An ecosystem is a community of living and non-living things that interact with each other and their environment. It includes all the plants, animals, microorganisms, and physical elements in a particular area. These elements work together to maintain the balance and sustain life within the ecosystem. Examples of ecosystems include forests, coral reefs, and deserts.

How can nature help restore ecosystems?

When we allow natural environments like forests, peat bogs, salt marshes and the seabed to recover, they can absorb carbon from the atmosphere. Ultimately, this can help reduce the risk of climate disaster.

Restoring these ecosystems can also help prevent the extinction of species, avoid ecological destruction, and create a more diverse and wonderful world for us all to appreciate.

How beavers engineer their ecosystem 

The dams built by North American beavers create ponds and wetlands and filter the water. These are all things that help prevent floods and droughts, but also benefit the plants and animals that live around them.
