Gardens By the Bay - Kids at the Gardens: Feed Me!

[Media Invite]

"Burp!" 

This plant is satisfied after "eating" some insects and tiny organisms.


This is pitcher plant, which is one of the carnivorous plants.

Pei Pei and Hao Hao were fascinated by carnivorous plants when they attended the preview of "Kids at the Gardens: Feed Me!", which is one of the March school holidays programmes at Gardens by the Bay.

Instead of looking at photos or videos, the children had face-to-face encounter with the carnivorous plants at the Cloud Forest.



Through the interactive tour in the cooled conservatories, the children also learnt more about plants e.g. how some plants store water, how some plants breathe air with aerial roots.




The "tour guide" from Gardens by the Bay was so engaging that Pei Pei and Hao Hao forgot about DaDi and MaMi.



After the tour, the children learnt to use recycled materials to make Venus flytrap. 



Catching "insects" with the Venus flytrap that we made was fun! Pei Pei is definitely a good catcher, as she could catch the "insects" without a miss! (Because her Venus flytrap is a king-sized one.)

"Kids at the Gardens: Feed Me!" is suitable for children from 4 to 6 years old. The price is SGD18 per pax excluding charges to the cooled conservatories.

There are other educational programmes in this series of Kids at the Gardens during March school holidays - "The Birds and the Bees", "Stories in the Understorey" and "Discoveries at the Kingfisher Lake". Do check out Gardens by the Bay's website for more information!
