The Northwest Flower & Garden Show is a wonderful way to spend an outdoor Spring day with the kids – indoors in February! With six acres of show to explore, it’s like spending the day at a park.
Even better – children 12 and under get into the show for FREE, and Youth tickets (age 13 – 17) are only $5.00.
The show wants young children to learn about the wonder of nature around them, spend a day without screens and dig the outdoors! So we’ve created a PlayGarden just for the kids. This is one area of the show where the motto definitely is “Look and touch!”
But we know the adults want to see the show gardens, so we help you engage your children with a Treasure Hunt! And there’s even a prize at the end thanks to Molbak’s Home + Garden.
Since the theme of the PlayGarden is “Swiss Family Robinson” (read more about it here) then we’ll be hiding COCONUTS in the show gardens. And these coconuts can be challenging to find! Each garden creator is going to disguise their coconut, so kids need to keep a sharp eye on the gardens to find every one.
Simply pick up a Treasure Hunt form as you enter the show, or at the PlayGarden, the Show Information booths, or at the Display Gardens. Then head off to the gardens for a treasure hunt adventure!
Once all the coconuts have been discovered by eager, eagle-eyed children, simply turn in the completed form at the Molbak’s booth, # 402. Kids will win a special prize from Molbak’s – a packet of sunflower seeds, and a coupon for a free hot chocolate on your next visit to Molbak’s.
So bring the entire family to the garden show, and let the kids go coconuts! ~ Janet
