Mother and Child at Explore and Play session

Explore and Play

Come and discover Eden’s fascinating plants. Journey into Eden’s Mediterranean and Rainforest Biomes and discover plants with every-day uses and stories of global connections. Through themed play activities, children will have opportunities to learn more about and connect with these plants.  

Explore and Play is for under 5s with their parents, grandparents or guardians. 


Explore and Play is a 75-minute session for under 5s and their families to discover more about Eden’s fascinating plants and their connections to them. Each session will have a different theme with plants to find in Eden’s iconic Biomes. Our facilitators will meet you at the beginning of each session and, after introductions, they’ll share clues to find the plants. Explore the Biomes together, then join in with play activities linked to the session theme. 

This session includes sensory play – handling plants, using clay, paint or play-dough and food tasting. Before attending, please inform us of any intolerances or allergies by emailing
