Woodland based activities for preschool children who are able to walk well through rough terrain to 5 yrs
Forest Tots takes place at Newbottle Wood, on Fridays in term time (March - Oct). Each session lasts 2 hours and continues in all but extreme weather events.
Each session starts with a welcome circle. We will cover a range of activities some of which may be familiar to you as you may have done them as a child. Activities will include stories, playing games, making bird feeders, making wands, mud painting, making woodland creatures, treasure hunts, hill rolling, mud sliding, mini beast hunts, natural art, den/ shelter building, campfires, using real tools such as bow saws, knives and drills and much, much more! Each session includes catching bubbles, drink and snacks and some time for free play in the woods.
A parent or carer must attend with the child; unattended children will not be allowed to stay at the session. This is due to Health and Safety and Insurance purposes. there are no toilets or changing facilities on site. Please ensure you and your child are dressed for the weather and mud!
