Nature Play Pop Up: Cutting-Garden Bouquets

August 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Curious about the relationship between insects and flowers? Love creating beautiful color combinations? Young children and their adults may join our volunteers in the cutting garden to make a petite bouquet to admire, share, or offer to the fairies in the Fairy & Troll Knoll.

The Gaffield Children’s Garden at Matthaei Botanical Gardens is hosting weekly hands-on Nature Play Pop-ups for summer 2022. UM student interns will lead interactive, exploratory nature play activities. This lightly guided play takes place in the nature art area of the Gaffield Children’s Garden. Young children will have hands-on fun while taking a closer look at nature, and parents will leave with easy ideas to encourage creative nature play at home. No registration, free event. First to arrive, first to play. Kids can join in as spaces open during the pop-ups. Suggested ages 3-7.  NOTE: All materials stay at Gaffield Children’s Garden unless otherwise specified.
