Bring the kids and enjoy activities connected with nature and the great outdoors. Whether it’s wild art, or wildlife spotting, there’s something to try every Tuesday of August 11am – 2pm.

Here’s what coming up this year!

2 August – Mini Nature Potions 50p. Make a tiny nature potion to take home either on a necklace or on its own.

9 August – Wild Clay Faces £1.50. Create a gruesome clay monster, smiley face or even a little creature, out of air drying clay, leaves, sticks, grass or other things from the Paddock to take home.

16 August – Whose poos? Be a nature detective (no extra charge) Dissect one of our fake animal poos to find out about the creature that left it! And look at our collection of nature artefacts.

23 August – Creepy Crawly Day (no extra charge). Look at what creepy crawlies live in the trees in the paddock, go insect spotting, and look at our collection of interesting objects.

30 August – Hapa Zome: leaf printing (No extra charge.) Make a natural ink print on paper using a hammer- this one needs a grown-up to help you!
