We are back from our travels and finally settling back into our regular routine. I have a number of things to post … once I finish cleaning them up 🙂
For now, I have a scavenger hunt. It is specific to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA.
But it was easy to make. The last time we were at the gardens, I took close-up pictures of about 25 things in the indoor Children’s Garden located in the Conservatory. Then I picked out 12 of them and made up a sheet with the images and the words in German.
Hippo (age 3 /12) needed some guidance to find everything, but he did it! And it was a fun way to spend our morning. We of course got distracted, chasing the leaping water up and down along the wall. And he explored the many other water features. (I often bring a change of clothes, just in case!) We also got to sit in the little red chairs to read a book that one of the volunteers lent to us.
If you happen to be in southeastern PA or want a daytrip from Philadelphia, Longwood Gardens is a beautiful destination. The property is so vast with so many different things to see! And there are a number of fun things for the children to find, such as the indoor and outdoor children’s gardens and several huge treehouses!
