Event description

Description

Kids have lots of creative and active fun in the Garden with our professional, enthusiastic educators!

This all-day school holiday program is full of fun and adventures in the Garden. Kids spend the day exploring the garden and connecting with nature! We have a different theme each day - come for one or all!

BUGS & BEASTIES
Tuesday 15th January 2019

Look for bugs and beasties as we explore the garden. Dip net in the pond, hunt for minibeasts and meet a garden expert. Get messy creating with clay, plant Swan River Daisy seeds to take home to grow and relax with animal yoga and meditation. Plus games, outdoor play and so much more!

WATER GRUBS
Thursday 17th January 2019

Summer is here, so pack your swimmers and a towel for a day of water play! You’ll also get to design and print your own tote bag, visit the ‘Plants with Bite’ exhibition at the Calyx and meet a horticulturalist. Plus you’ll do gardening, art, craft and lots of other fun activities!

JUNGLE ADVENTURES
Monday 21st January 2019

Explore the rainforest and make jungle slime! Take a guided tour of Latitude 23 glasshouse and a visit to the Calyx to see plants that bite! Make a rainforest-inspired sun catcher, pot a plant in the Cryptogam house and go on a photo scavenger hunt. And of course there will be lots of games and other outdoor fun too!

LUNAR NEW YEAR
Tuesday 22nd January 2019

Celebrate the Lunar New Year garden-style! Design and paint a paper lantern, visit the oriental garden and learn about plants from our resident expert. Can you use chopsticks?

"Abi and Samuel had the most wonderful time at Garden Grubs! So much so that they ended up going for 3 days in a row! They loved exploring the gardens and making art. The staff who ran each day we're all amazing!
