Welly Wednesday – 1pm

How to book

Welly Wednesday features an hour of fun outdoor activities, story telling and exploring for pre schoolers.

This week’s session: ‘Bug Hotel’

The session will begin with an insect hunt.  When we have found all the hidden insects we will talk about how many of them like to sleep as the weather becomes colder.  We’ll look at our big insect hotel and improve it and put our insects there.  The children then make their own insect hotels to go home.  There will usually be a story and songs at the end.

Some of the session will be held outdoors so bring appropriate clothing as rain is forecast.  There will be a shelter in the roundhouse with fire and hot chocolate to warm us up.

Meeting point at the “Back to Nature” woods, take a right once through Gatehouse. If the weather is bad on the day, the meeting point will be moved to the Great Glasshouse, please check on arrival. Please dress for the weather, and you can bring a snack to eat.

Spaces are limited to 10 children per session (no more than 2 children per adult – 1 ticket = 1 child), adhering to the social distancing guidelines.

Please reserve tickets here
