Easter Holidays: Farm & Forest Fun! (5-7 year olds)


This Easter we've got two jam packed, fun-filled days of outdoor activities for kids both on a farm and in a forest!

 

Dates:

Wednesday 6th April, 9.30am-3pm
Thursday 7th April, 9.30am-3pm
NB. One-day bookings will be available from 1st March (subject to availability).

This event is for children aged 5-7 years old. Looking for activities for 8-11 year olds? Please click here.

Day 1 is spent at The Community Farm, a beautiful Organic farm with yurt, over-looking Chew Valley Lake. Children will explore what the farmers are up to this time of year and have a chance to harvest some veg from the fields to cook up a seasonal feast in our Yurt to share for lunch. We'll then spend the afternoon playing outdoor games, pond-dipping and getting dirty with some farming activities!

Day 2 will be our Forest School day, within a nearby private woodland. Children will get the opportunity to explore the woodland, harvest natural materials and learn how to use hand-tools for their own woodcraft project. We'll cook lunch over a campfire, play woodland games and have fun :-)

To ensure children get the most from their experience, we limit our activities to a maximum of 8 children so book early to avoid disappointment.

It's the perfect antidote the the school classroom!

If you're keen to get your kids outside and re-connected with food and the natural world then this is the perfect opportunity!

Toilet Facilities

Since the Forest School (Day 2) is out in the wild woods we have no permanent toilet facilities on site and so will be providing a temporary, private (and hygienic) latrine that we will show children how to use. A great skill to learn for wild camping! Hand-washing facilities will be provided. A portaloo and handwashing is provided at the farm (Day 1).
