Home Education at the Botanic Garden

Last week we went to the Botanic Garden with our home education group, for an apple workshop. We listened to apple stories, tasted different varieties of apples and did some apple crafts. At the beginning of the workshop the woman running it asked the children to introduce themselves and Sunnyboy was first to be asked "Can you stand up and tell us, what is your name?". He stood up and proudly replied "What is your name."

After the apple workshop we all went on a nature walk around the Botanic Garden.

Glittery apples

Nature walk finds (our favourite is the Osage Orange fruit)
