Celebrate Christmas in the beautiful outdoors at Western KY Botanical Garden

Grab the kiddos for a family-friendly event this weekend at the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden—one of the prettiest places in the area!

This weekend, children, music and crafting can come together at the Botanical Garden’s Christmastime Music & Crafting experience. This event will give kids ages 2-6 a very special way to celebrate Christmas in an interactive way.

You can register for Christmastime Music & Crafting on two different dates. The first kicks off December 9 and the second on December 13. The event runs from 10-11 a.m. both days. The cost is $10 per child, and siblings under the age of 1 are free. You can register here or go to melodygardenkids.com.   

Children can participate and listen to a variety of nature-based music that includes all kinds of instruments and techniques. From guitars to wind chimes, kids can become immersed in the sounds played by musicians in a beautiful outdoor setting.

Everyone participating in these classes gets to interact with one another, sing songs, dance and celebrate all things nature!

On top of that, Western Kentucky Botanical Garden is hosting a Family Christmas Sing-Along on Saturday, December 11. This event includes hands-on music for the kiddos, hot chocolate, cookies and a number of other fun surprises!

Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rebecca Samples will be present to lead the group in a number of Christmas carols and classic songs for this outdoor, cozy get together. Head to WKBG’s Garden Gazebo at 11 a.m. to take part in this annual holiday tradition! The event is free but $5 donations are appreciated.
