School Holidays at Adelaide Botanic Garden - April 2017
Tue., 18/04/2017, 1:30 pm – Fri., 28/04/2017, 12:00 pm ACST
Adelaide Botanic Garden’s stacked School Holiday Program program is back this April, with a range of activities suitable for 5-12 year olds kicking off on Tuesday 18 April! Activities have been designed to promote fun, hands-on learning about plants, people and the environment, and parents are encouraged to book early – spots will sell out. All Children must be accompanied by a parent/caregiver at all times. Only children require a booking, not the parent. Please check carefully the minimum age for each activity before booking.
Head to the Botanic Gardens of South Australia website to download the program flyer and/or for phone booking details.
Garden Critters (6-12 year olds), 1 hour, $10, bookings essential
Take a guided walk in the Garden to collect curious botanic bits such as seedpods and leaves, then create a cute critter to take home. Will be held in the Lecture Theatre of the Goodman Building. Note: Due to the use of hot glue guns, parents/carers must work with their children at all times. Children under 6 years cannot be admitted into the activity. Bring a box with you to ensure your handiwork keeps safe on the way home.
Awesome Autumn's Fresh & Fabulous Food (5-12 year olds), 1.5 hours, $20, bookings essential
