Come to the Children’s Garden for some fun activities that explore the world of plants. Groups of 10 or more please contact Lily Christman, at 405-445-5162, for more information about group activities.
Make-it Mondays: Each Monday children will “make and take” something home using a variety of natural and craft materials. We’ll make a summer full of fun garden crafts like wind chimes, chia heads, and seed bombs.
Tasty Tuesdays: Don’t miss this fun morning where you’ll get to play with food! Combine different shapes of fresh veggies, fruits, and herbs to create edible animals like cucumber bumble bees and cauliflower sheep! This activity is a great way to turn a “yuck” into a “yum” and to learn about these foods and where they come from.
Reading Wednesdays: It’s that time of year when Reading Wednesdays move back out into the garden! We’ll be reading nature-inspired books that connect children with what is growing and changing in the garden each week and then make a craft.
“Think Green” Thursdays: This day of the week is devoted to fun crafts that focus on the 3 R’s of environmental kindness: reduce, reuse, and recycle. We’ll upcycle unused or discarded items to make something new and cool like transforming a plastic bottle into a bird feeder!
Find-it Fridays: This is a self-guided scavenger hunt, leading you on a discovery of nature in the Children’s Garden with all of its shapes, textures, and beautiful colors. Use fun tools like magnifying lenses and binoculars, as you wind your way through the garden!
