Seedlings is 1 Hotels’ new kids’ program full of family-friendly activities that bring children closer to nature.

1 Hotels newly launched kids programming, Seedlings, features family-friendly activities, indoor camping kits and outdoor adventures. Not only does the program connect children with their natural surroundings, but it also takes a fun, hands-on approach to teaching them how important it is to take care of the environment. The flagship Seedlings program is available weekdays at the 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach and the 1 Hotel Central Park from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays for $50 to $90 per child.

In Miami, children ages 4 to 12 can participate in activities at Basecamp, an indoor play area with a mini rock climbing wall, as well as craft and creativity stations, or they can head to the hotel’s beachfront for hands-on projects, including making a bird seed feeder and creating seashell art with nature-friendly materials and shells from the beach. 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach also provides kids with tents to build in their guestrooms, board games and in-room movies. On select dates throughout the year, kids are able to learn about solar and wind energy, and participate in hands-on learning on marine life through a partnership with the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science. Room rates start at $699 per night. For more information, call (786) 298-2086 or visit 1hotels.com/south-beach.

Parents staying with infants and small children at the 1 Hotel Central Park are greeted with an organic stuffed bear and a 100 percent GOTS certified organic cotton rattle, plus Bambini Boutique brand shampoos, lotions and soaps, which are made from natural ingredients. Guests with newborns are given a dye-free, chemical-free In2Green baby blanket. Older kids, staying in select suites, receive a solar-powered lantern and a sleeping bag to camp out in their room. Room rates start at $499. For more information, call (212) 703-2001 or visit 1hotels.com/central-park.
