Franklin Park Conservatory Nature and Play Activities

  • Columbus City Schools and Franklin Park Conservatory have created fun and educational activities for families to enjoy this summer. There are six outdoor themes with five activities included with each theme that are modeled after things you can do at the Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.

    The six themes are: HABITATS, IMAGINATIVE PLAY, LET’S GARDEN, NATURE ART, POLLINATORS, and SENSORY. A two-page journal is available to print and use with any of the activities. With a little imagination and materials found in nature, there is something fun for everyone!

    Printable materials for each theme can be found below:
