The Jardin des Plantes

This tour based on observation is a paper chase for children from 9 to 11.

The Jardin des Plantes is an extraordinary garden! It is a museum, a zoo, a botanical garden and a research centre at the same time.

Do your children like animals? Do they prefer stones? Perhaps they are passionate about rare and exotic plants. Then, that place should satisfy their curiosity in a playful way.

This paper chase is an invitation to discover the whole outdoor area. Children will have to solve puzzles thanks to the information given in the Explorer’s booklet and their observation of the surroundings. We hope both you and them will have fun while sharing this moment of discovery.

Like all the other tours of Circuits Parallèles, the “Jardin des Plantes” Explorer’s tour can be followed on a smartphone or a tablet. However, we recommend you to directly download and print the booklet (once you have bought it) because it is more convenient for children.
