Creative Hand Workshop
For children, they can sit down and make handmade articles with their parents in the Children’s Botanical Garden equipped with amusement facilities. Isn’t that interesting? Chenshan Botanical Garden carries out all sorts of manual activities on holidays and festivals in the Children’s Botanical Garden, including rose soap making, paper folding and leaf collage. This not only exercises children’s hands-on ability, but also enables them to unconsciously learn about plants as they are playing. Remember, a very well known French child psychologist, Jean Piaget, said “ We remember 10% of what we hear, 30% of what we see and, 90% of what we do.”
“Chenshan Fantastic Night” Summer Camp
One of the unique opportunities for children at Shanghai Chenshan Botanical Garden is the Chenshan Fantastic Night Summer Camp. This highly rated and popular program was created to let kids have fun and learn at the same time. Children are encouraged to engage in hands-on scientific exploration as they build both team-working skills and independent thinking. This is a great way to encourage young scientists.
