Half Term Activity Morning

Friday, February 20th 2015

Today, thirteen children enjoyed a morning of activities during their half term holiday; several games were played as well the arts and crafts activities on offer. Earlier in the week, twigs, pine cones and other natural materials were collected to created decorative mobiles.

The favourite was making a bird feeder to take home out of a foraged pine cone stuffed with lard, seed and nuts. Birds all around the area will enjoy feasting on these over the weekend.

Our new interactive touchscreen also proved a hit with the young visitors, who all enjoyed competing for the top score on the quiz.

Several of the bird ringers were also in this morning, giving a ringing demo to visitors. The children learned about the process of bird ringing and were able to see some of our woodland birds up close.

Our thanks go to everyone who has helped out this morning by planning, preparing and delivering these activities.
