Kew Royal Botanical Gardens – London

Little fairies (aka: delighted children) flutter at the Climbers and Creepers play zone. The interactive English garden was built to engage elves and pixies from ages 3-9 and help them learn about the importance of plants. They can even “become insects” and climb inside a plant to learn about pollination. It’s like being on a Magic School Bus episode!
