Making mini ponds

This half term I've carved pumpkins, painted gravestones, strung up bats (card ones only - don't worry) and draped the house with fake cobwebs but sadly done little by way of gardening.  In fact the only fork wielding I've done was weeding the village playground whilst trying not to dig up a dead cat.*

But if anyone has more energy than I can muster this weekend, you could try this easy project: making a mini wildlife pond.
