"Nature calmed me, focused me, yet excited my senses" Richard Louv, from Last Child in the Woods
Get connected to nature through games, crafts, stories and fun in these outdoor sessions. Activities include den building, animal tracking, woodcrafts, gardening, bug hunts, wildlife spotting and using natural dyes. Using all their senses, children learn to cultivate their curiosity about the natural world, and to value their environment.
Problem solving, risk management, independence and team building - children learn to keep themselves and each other safe whilst having fun in the natural environment. Activities include building rope bridges, natural shelters and obstacle courses, learning about local wildlife and the environment, mapping, camouflage, foraging and woodcrafts.
Nature Art Days
The natural world provides us with many different materials with which to create. Get fully immersed in nature with this practical art session. Participants will forage for natural materials which will then be used in an art project. Exploring the concepts of leave no trace and respect for nature, children will gain a new respect for the the environment and their surroundings whilst getting closer to nature through art.
