On Thursday this week, I was itching to get me and Jordan out of the house! We have been staying home a lot so I can keep unpacking and getting us settled in our new house. I couldn't find anything to do except a story time in Palm Beach. I had never heard of this place before. It was called "The 4 Arts of Palm Beach". I kept going back and forth over whether to take him or not, but there was nothing else for us to do! So I finally said we'll go check it out, and I am SO glad we did!!!
Mom's of Palm Beach County, this was such a gem that I found!! It was in a beautiful garden with the most exotic flowers. They were absolutely gorgeous! Huge trees everywhere. Then, a beautiful open grass area for the kids to run around. They read 3 books with songs in between. They were garden themed books. One was super cute about a little plant that was too shy to come out of his pot. Once all the kids yelled "Please come out!" the little plant peeps out with her blooming flower petals. (Sorry I didn't catch the name or Author!)
They had a beautiful pavilion where the kids did a cute craft in the shade. Which was nice, because it was really hot! They gave free planting kits. One was a fruit kit with watermelon seeds and the other was cantaloupe. They also gave away a taco planting kit, where you had everything you needed for tacos. Green peppers, tomatoes and fun stuff like that!
At the end, they had a map of the garden and a little scavenger hunt for certain plants and trees in the garden. Once you found the plant or tree, the kids got stickers. For Jordan, it was more like finding the volunteer with the stickers, and then they would show you a cool plant! Haha
Either way, we had such a great time and I couldn't wait to go back! Until I found that they only do Story Time in the Garden every other year!! I was so sad! We will be making plans to go to regular story times at the Palm Beach library, which are Mondays and Thursdays at 10:30. But if I could make a suggestion to that board of volunteers at the garden, I would love to do it more often! It was so exciting! Hope you enjoy the pictures!
P.S. I'm not a photographer! Hehe
This is one of my favorites!

This plant was called a "Lobster Claw".
Getting his stickers. He started putting them on his face instead of his paper.
Me and my boy!
Craft Time! I wish I would've taken a picture of the pavilion we were on. It was so pretty.
