Family Activity:
If you enjoyed creating art with natural materials with us here at Bok Tower Gardens, we invite you to keep the fun going! Look around outside where you live, work, learn, and play; The earth is generous in providing all you need to create natural art with your family in many places! Remember that it’s being connected with nature and each other that is the goal. When you finish, you can erase what you’ve made or leave it for someone else to find and connect to. Challenge the family to not use any electronics during this time, it will enhance your connection with each other.
