Explore the outdoors with your children ages 18 months to 3 years at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. Spend your morning outside as we enjoy story time and activities with Carlos the Cactus! This month we will be reading the book, “Leaf Man” by Lois Ehlert. Enjoy story time with Carlos the Cactus and then explore the garden as we search high and low finding woodland tree treasures to create our own little Leaf Man. This will be your last month to have fun in the Garden since winter is quickly approaching and our Garden is going to sleep. Hope to see you there!Book
