Field Trip to Botanic Gardens
Recently, our Preschoolers’ field trip led us into the wonder of the Mordecai Children’s Garden at the Denver Botanic Gardens. We could not have asked for a more pleasant day; the sky was blue, there was a slight breeze and plenty of sunshine! Perfect for our stream waders, cave dwellers, bouncy bridge crossers and courageous climbers!
At first reluctant to step into the little stream, once toes were wet, chances increased that pant legs and shirt sleeves would soon follow. There were squeals of pleasures in the stream area.
Another favorite was the bouncy bridge. Jumping up and down made it bounce and squeak. Many were the giggles and happy screams coming from up in the air on the bridge.
The garden offers a lovely place to play, explore and discover. Adults and kids alike planted seedlings in little pots made of newspaper. The children took their pots home to experience the wonder of growing seeds!
The Modecai Children’s Garden changes often because the natural environment constantly changes. We highly recommend a repeat visit!
