You'll discover the rainforest in the Climatron, make a craft in the Exploration Center's new PlantLab and then head to the Doris I. Schnuck Children's Garden for a special ice cream treat. Children will receive a bag filled with special goodies, admission to the Children's Garden and ice cream.
2-4 p.m. Admission is $15 for adults (age 13 and up) and $25 for children.
Take your kids to The Butterfly House to have brunch with The Very Hungry Caterpillar! Guests will meet live caterpillars and butterflies, listen to readings of Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar book, and explore the interactive Bug Stations.
This special day will be captured with a souvenir photo with The Very Hungry Caterpillar himself!
Reservations are required and space is limited.
Early childhood teachers are invited to bring their students to the Missouri Botanical Garden for an unforgettable visit to the Gardenland Express. This year the annual holiday train show celebrates conifers of the world.
Children will enjoy the train show, complete a craft and learn how conifers help animals survive the winter. All classes receive a take-home Winter Kit to use in their classroom and schoolyard.
