Activity overview

Teams play, learn and work together to complete the challenges and win back their friends’ freedom.

What happens:An original Eden story inspires pupils on a learning journey in our Outdoor Gardens. In order to complete their quest and release kidnapped Ken and Barbie, they’ll need to take part in physical games and challenges and use their senses to explore the world around them in unusual ways. They’ll create poems, craft wands and prepare powerful potions to transport them safely back to reality.
