Use your senses

Session outline

Use your senses in this hands-on tour around the Garden.  Enjoy a mixture of self-guided and staff guided activities using touch, smell, sight and hearing.  Go on a sensory scavenger hunt around the Garden, play a smelly plant guessing game, find out why leaves feel different and discover plants that are all the colours of the rainbow.

This session is a part guided and part self-guided tour.  The group will be split into two during the session so please ensure that you have four or more accompanying adults.

Session length: 1 hour 15 minutes
