Event REVIEW: Play with Plants! - ★★★★★

Explore, play and build this summer!

Discover the world of plants through play. This summer experience the joy of the botanical world at Play with Plants, RBGE’s hands-on, indoor play experience at the John Hope Gateway.

Let imaginations come alive through shapes, colours and inventive play. Have fun dressing up, enjoy stories from the natural world in our cosy story corner and find out what bugs do for plants and what we can do for bugs with our mini market garden.

Families can make LEGO® creations, build and plant their own garden landscape or get creative and decorate a giant LEGO® wall. Featuring the works of LEGO® artist Warren Elsmore, families can also get up close to his most recent LEGO® creation, a giant strawberry made from over 60,000 bricks!

Let the adventure then continue and head out into the Garden after to discover the magic and wonder of nature.

Most suitable ages 2 - 8 years

Mix Up Junior (Age 5) - ★★★★★

"I give it 150000 thousand stars out of 5. The best bits are playing as a farmer and then all the lego. The best bit in the garden is the Dinosaur Tree."

Stewart - ★★★★

"The Botanics remain an excellent place to come and chill for a day and explore. The Play with Plants is a lot of fun, with a special shout out to the AT-T Star Wars lego build. The giant strawberry is also pretty cool. There's plenty to do for the younger ones but maybe it's a little pricey for what it is - perhaps not putting a time limit on it would make it a little more worthwhile - but then again the gardens are free so it does even out."


Make sure you have booked in for the latest DRAMA CLASSES at Mix Up Theatre...
