Half Term Antics

Wednesday, February 17th 2016

It’s half term this week for the local schools, so we organised an activity morning, with lots of nature themed indoor activities for children to choose from. We always try and get the children outside if we can, but the weather forecast had not been good, so we brought some of the ‘outdoors’, ‘indoors’, in the form of sticks and twigs, cones, ivy and pine needles.

The children then transformed these into fantastic works of art, making picture frames, mobiles, collage drawings, mini nature reserves and on a more practical note bird feeders.


There were quizzes and a jigsaw to keep them amused too. One of the popular activities amongst the older children that attended was birdwatching, with help on identification from two of our volunteers, Jenny and Sue.


A big thank you to all our volunteer helpers who came today, it was a very enjoyable session for all involved, children and parents alike.
