Spring is in the air and Sussex Wildlife Trust Nature Tots parent and child outdoor adventure groups are back for children aged 3-5 in Brighton, Crawley, Eastbourne, Henfield, Horsham and Rye.
Our Nature Tots groups are run by fully trained Forest School Leaders, providing a wonderful opportunity for families to experience and learn from nature in woodland, meadow and coastal habitats. Children will be encouraged to tackle hands-on outdoor activities, work co-operatively with others, and have an opportunity to gain a sense of achievement while developing social skills and boosting confidence.
Sessions are themed around wildlife and the changing seasons, activities vary at each location and may include: Building a den or bridge; exploring the reserve and finding out all about the birds, animals and insects which live there; making a bird feeder; sawing, drilling and whittling; pond dipping, mini-beast discovery, preparing a snack around the campfire; craft activities using natural materials and strandline treasure hunts.
