Chesworth Farm Summer Holiday Club (09/08/17) Wednesday, 9th August 2017 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
It's a Bug's Life
You might expect to see a cow or a sheep but delve a little deeper and be prepared for surprises down on the farm. Come and explore the exciting world of minibeasts. Use a net to dive into the watery world of the pond in search of water boatmen and dragonfly nymphs and visit the meadow to see if you can find any grasshoppers with your sweep net.
Then back to the camp site to learn safe fire lighting for hot drinks and snacks before making your own minibeast model from natural materials and practice using hand tools to make a mini bug hotel to take home.
Please ensure children bring a packed lunch, drink and extra snacks and wear suitable outdoor clothing/footwear and sun protection for the weather conditions.
Suitable for children aged 6-11 years. Parents/carers do not accompany children.
