Kids Summer Fun – Forest School with Nature Nurture Sussex
Aug 1 @ 10:00 am – 3:30 pm

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Make the most of the great outdoors this summer and bring the family our Forest School held in the magical Borde Hill Woodland.

During the 1½ hour pre-bookable sessions children will be encouraged to play and learn about plants and wildlife, whilst being free to explore and use their imaginations.

Using natural materials children will create their very own bug hotel to take home. They will also try their hand at Hapa Zome (leaf-bashing) the Japanese art of flower and plant printing using fabric and rubber mallets. A fantastic activity for kids and a great way to connect with nature! Other activities include hunting for bugs using magnifying glasses, and a mud kitchen!

Bookable sessions will take place at 10-11.30, 12-1.30, 2-3.30

Nature Nurture Sussex Forest School is run by trained and experienced Forest School Leaders who love everything about the great outdoors and are passionate about the benefits it can have on children and adults alike.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Admission (pre-booking required):
