The fun to be had....?

There will be lots of Valentines themed natural crafts to keep us entertained throughout the morning and these can be adapted to suit the individual abilities of the children, from
heart shaped clay valentines hanging decorations, wooden love inspired key rings, plus lots more, all to take home to keep or give as presents for your loved ones.
We will also spend some exploring the farm, meeting and greeting the animals, relaxing in the hammock, playing on the swing or bug hunting.
Enjoy some hot chocolate and toast some marshmallows around the camp fire whilst chatting to new friends and enjoying our picnics before an afternoon of Valentines crafts with
Lizzie's craft club will be held in the communal greenhouse. There are lots of Valentines themed craft items to make,
you can paint and decorate a tealight holder and other "hearty" themed craft items to take home and remember your Hearts
and Minds Family Day at Applefield. A drink and biscuit will also be provided during craft club. Places at Lizzie's craft club for special needs
children and their siblings are funded by Wellspring West Sussex, reducing the overall cost of the day of activities at Applefield.
