Get your toddler or pre-schooler outdoors to discover the natural world!
Whatever the weather, the benefits of outdoor play have been well documented. Much recent research has highlighted how a connection with the natural world helps adults and children alike to feel better, work better and sleep better!*
The woodland is a great place to engage with the natural world and the changing seasons, but autumn is an especially wonderful time.
Kids in the Woods is our fortnightly toddler/pre-school group designed to give you and your child(ren) the opportunity to get together for outdoor play and learning in the magical setting of Leigh Woods. Sessions run during term time only, normally on every other Wednesday. Each week there is a different themed activity in the woodland, something to do or make (to take home) back at the Green Barn, a hot drink and a story around the fire.
Cost: £28 per child (under 18 mos free with older sibling) for 4 sessions. £40 siblings special rate (two siblings aged 18 mos – 4 yrs) for 4 sessions.
Time: 9.30am – 11am
Dates: Wednesday 18th October autumn animals (craft activity: make a hedgehog).
Dates for next term : Wednesdays – 1st November Things that go bump in the night (craft activity – making bat masks and/or finger puppets), 15th November Busy Underground (craft activity – making mini-beasts homes) and 29th November Keeping Warm in Winter (cooking over the fire), 13th December Christmas is coming!
