One of Pune’s biggest landmark, Empress garden in camp has been a host to numerable kid friendly activities over the past few years. One such fun fest was organized by Beyond Academics in December 8th and 9th 2018 called the ‘One with Nature’ which the twins attended (They were 5 years old then). With a Sprawling garden specializing in regional plants, with rare trees, flowers and a kids’ area, it was a day well spent with lots of kid oriented fun activities.
‘ONE WITH NATURE’ is an annually organized fest by ‘Beyond Academics’ held in Pune and Mumbai. They had an exciting line up of free activities to reconnect kids with nature like: Storytelling, Nature Games, Art and Craft, Yoga, Scavenger Hunts, Recycling and much more. These activities were conducted free of cost in a common open arena surrounded by the beauty of nature. I personally liked the Yoga session which was specially designed for kids integrated with different stories. They also had paid activities like: Adventure sports, Science & Nature, Art & Craft, Sensory Play and to top it all, Mouth-watering Food Stalls, Pop Up Stalls & much more!!
In adventure sports the main attraction was the ‘Zip- Line” which the twins tried for the first time, since then they make a beeline for it wherever they come across it. The twins also tried their hand in pottery which was yet another interesting activity. Obstacle course was also pretty much adventurous.
The tickets were available on bookmyshow.com with discounted rates. Ample parking was present in Empress garden. Since it was in December, the weather was cool and pleasant.
