Get Children Gardening
 

Video games are mostly inside experiences. However, they offer experiences that can connect players to a love of gardening and the outside. The games in this list have a garden aspect to their story, gameplay and interactions.

In some of the games, you use gardening and farming as central elements, while other games offer gardening as something optional. Either way, these interactions introduce players to concepts of the seasons, crop rotation, soil, fertiliser and the impact on the environment.

If you want to have more time to talk about gardening with a child or want to introduce them to the idea that they could create their own garden (or crop) then these games are a great way to extend those ideas into reality.
 
This list includes 65 games from the last 18 years, with 1,508 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to inspire a love of mud.
