Kids get bored easily, and the more to do, the better, especially when it takes them outside. Calloway’s Nursery has several FREE kid’s events throughout the summer that you won’t want to miss! Check it out!

The Prince / Princess And The Pea

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

Have you heard of the fairy tale, “The Princess and the Pea”? If you haven’t, come join us as we have story time and plant a seed or two. And if you already know the story, come to the garden center to hear an old favorite and learn with other little (girl and boy) gardeners!

Tin Can Planting

Wednesday, July 18, 2012 at 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

Recycling is good, and tin cans make nifty plant containers. Accompanied by a parent, children can pot a tomato seed and learn more about the edible tomato plant. Children are encouraged to bring their own empty, clean tin can. Join us at the garden center for this easy, fun and educational gardening event.

Beautiful Butterflies

Wednesday, August 15, 2012 at 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

Did you know that certain plants attract beautiful butterflies? Come to Calloway’s or Cornelius Nursery and learn about wildlife pollinators. Accompanied by a parent, children will make butterflies out of coffee filters and pipe cleaners while they learn about wildlife pollinators. Have fun as your child colors and learns about the natural world!
