Mini Family Nature Walks

These 1-hour mini sessions take you and your children on an investigative tour or the beautiful flora and fauna in our fields, hedgerows and gardens. 


Together we'll learn how to identify, draw and observe the ecosystems around us as well as learn how to be safe and respectful in a wild environment.


Cost: £10 per family group,  payable on booking. 


Only one family group per session.


Available Monday - Friday

Children and Dogs

This 1-hour mini workshop is aimed at getting your children involved with your dogs and teaches them how they can help with training and taking care of your dog, how to approach dogs and how to live and be around them in a safe and respectful way.


This workshop is particularly helpful for families with young children, with older dogs or puppies.


Cost: £10 per family group, payable on booking.

 

Only one family group per session.

Available Monday - Friday


Mini Baking Sessions

Baking is a great way of getting your children involved in a STEM (Science, Technology, Electronics and Maths) activity that not only teaches them how to be safe in the kitchen but they also learn Maths through balancing quantities and Science through how ingredients react with heat, and blending colours together.


This family activity can be based here at my cottage kitchen or I can come to your home.


Join me for a 2-hour Cupcake making session with all ingredients included. Plenty of time to mix, bake and decorate before taking your creations home. 


Cost: £20 per family group, payable on booking.


Only one family group per session.

Available Monday - Friday


Mini Science Parties

This is a 1-hour party designed to take your children through some fun Science-based activities that will teach them how fun Science can be.


My parties are done at your own home, in the safety of your garden or kitchen. All I need is a table and I'll provide the rest.


Cost: £10 per family group, payable on booking.


Only one family group per session.

Available Monday - Friday
