The fun to be had....?


The first of our themed Summer activities is "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"

The very hungry caterpillar is so very hungry and we need to find the food hidden along the trail to feed her, it's tiring finding food so we'll take a rest under the Yew tree and listen to the story. The very hungry caterpillar loves munching through fruit so we'll make a paper pot and sow an apple seed to take home and grow into an apple tree for caterpillars to enjoy and foraging for leaves and twigs and other natural materials we find around the woods, you will create your very own butterfly to take home too.

We might get hungry with all these activities so we'll make some fruit kebabs using apples, strawberries and melon to munch through and enjoy around the campfire.

There will also be time to explore and play, dipping in and out of the activities, swing in the hammock, make a den or play on the swing. There will be squash available for the children and tea and coffee for the adults. We will also toast marshmallows to finish the morning.

Please contact us with any questions about the morning at
