We recently decided to take the children to the Eden Project.
We hadn't been before so it was a completely new experience for all of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our visit.
It cost us £20 each to visit but we each got a year free enterence pass in that price so its a bargain to be honest (obviously if you can use the pass it pays for itself)
Whilst we were there they had a Freaky Nature event on for half term.
This was really good for the kids cause they got to learn about how seeds are distributed around in many different ways so plants are grown in all kinds of places.
They got to demonstrate this through different activities like popping a balloon full of multi coloured paper which represented seeds being scattered about.
They got to see all kinds of various insets through magnifying glasses and microscopes which was really interesting.
Once we had let the boys participate in these activities we took them to the Rainforest Biome and the Mediterranean Biome.
The rainforest biome was fantastic, as soon as you walked through the door you were hit with humidity of the place.
Once we had finished visiting the biomes we had a nice walk back through the gardens where the both got to pretend they had ploughed the land ready to sow their seeds.
Also we came across this rather big chappychappy WEE Man, he is a piece of art work made out all electrical stuff that a single household throws away throughout their lifetime, I thought he was quiet cool to be honest.
We went to Eden last year and I found it really interesting, the children on the other hand...not so much.ReplyDelete
