At Home with Gumbo Limbo

At Gumbo Limbo we love our sea turtles, but we also love other animals just as much.  Gumbo Limbo education team has created fun and educational activities for your kids and the family to do together in your own backyard and home.

 


Coral Reef

We love to learn about the different habitats in and around Florida. First up: Coral Reef Habitats!


Fish

Here at Gumbo Limbo, we love all the beautiful fish that live in our ocean! Did you know you can learn more about the fish right here in South Florida every Friday for #FishFriday on our social channels? In the meantime, here are some fun and educational activities about fish to do at home!


Plants

How does your garden grow? Don’t have a garden? That’s okay; you can still learn all about plants! When it comes to plants, there are so many colors, shapes, and sizes. If you don’t have a favorite plant now, you will after these fun activities.
