Using the natural environment, get stuck in with eco-art and nature inspired creative play. Using land art inspiration form artists such as Andy Goldworthy create a group masterpiece, challenge yourself to clay sculpture building, have a go at caveman style charcoal drawings plus create your own woodland paints. Muddy, messy and colourful learning in the outdoors!

Birds & Bugs

Bug hunting is a always a favourite with kids (and adults!) in the woods. Learn about bugs and birds from wiggly worms in the ground to the beautiful buzzards that swoop and swirl in the trees. Make a mini bug hotel using natural materials, giant feather nests, test your bug ID knowledge and enjoy chocolate covered crunchy critters around the campfire (if you dare!).

Suitable for: Early Years, KS1 & KS2


Wild Animation

Outdoor animation for tech savvy kids! Using ipads create your own imaginative mini world. Kids will have fun whilst learning hands-on skills, taking inspiration from the environment, exploring habitats, tracks, trails and applying basic principles of film making and storytelling in a truly creative and jam packed day.

Working with our super whizzy animation leader, fill your up 'imagination bucket', build and design your own film set, create clay characters and record your own stop-motion film using iPads and cameras. Hidden creatures, woodland fairies and even tree climbing dragons…the creative possibilities are endless!

Suitable for: KS2 & KS3

Hedgehog houses and toad abodes! Explore the woodland and follow your leader to find the hidden creatures in the woods. Using a creative activities and sensory play we will learn about trees, habitats, food chains and species that live in the forest. Plenty of stories, songs and eco-art to keep little people learning and engaged.

Hands-on learning with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and have a go at handling some super cool friendly mini beasts (don’t forget to have a cuddle with Winston the bearded dragon!)! After the initial meet and greet (approx 30-40 mins), our woodland leaders will help children with making their own mini bug hotels to take home, hunt for worms and beetles or build dens in the woods!

Disabled Access

Please get in touch to discuss access. Our site is situated on a  farm and woodland environment and has a natural terrain. We are able to accommodate for users but will need information before the day of the event to ensure suitability and parking requirements.


We believe the woodland is a positive and nurturing setting that all children (and adults!) should be able to enjoy. Our ethos is centred around child led play in a non judgmental environment and our team leaders have experience in working with mixed groups of children. We welcome discussion before all workshops to ensure we are able to support and scaffold individual children's learning.
