Forest Family Fun Sessions

Tuesday 14th July - SORRY FULL



Magical outdoor adventures aimed at preschool children.  Come and enjoy our woodland sessions with your children and appreciate the joys of nature, encouraging them to engage with nature and let them enjoy the freedom to run in the sun, play in the mud and explore the wonderful great outdoors.  We go on nature walks, play hide and seek, tell stories and sing….and we always have a campfire for our pancakes and crumpets.  It's often quite muddy, so wellies and splash suits are recommended.
