We've got lots of fun Scarecrows Wedding activities to do too:

  • Make a crow on a stick to fly around the farm!

  • Create a natural necklace by sawing a wood slice and threading Elder beads, shells and pasta onto ribbon.

In our wooded area you will find a hammock to play in, our nest swing to relax in and a mud kitchen to create some mud pies, or maybe you would like to explore or go on a bug hunt.


Back at the fire circle, we will toast some marshmallows over the fire and enjoy some hot chocolate or squash whilst listening to the story before it is time to go home all worn out!
