Welcome!  This page contains garden and nature activities that you can do at Magnuson Children’s Garden or in your own backyard!

It’s easy and fun to go on a nature adventure with our new multi-language “Discover Your Garden” activity:

  • Go to the Magnuson Children’s Garden kiosk and pick out a “Discovery Card” in the language of your choice, then explore the garden to find 10 special places with nature activities to do at each!  The cards are 100% waterproof plastic, so can be used rain or shine! 
  • Once you have finished, please return the “Discovery Card” to the kiosk for the next explorer to use.  Thanks!

If you would like to use your very own Discovery Card to explore the garden, you can view and/or download it by clicking on one of the links below:
