a season full of fun, wonder and creativity
We are so excited to say that we have designed and launched seasonal activity boxes.
I love nothing more than being outside with children, showing them new things, creating space for them to play, grow, develop and learn.
The idea for these boxes came about because i know not everyone has access to a Forest School, parents today are busier then ever but understand the great importance of connecting our children with nature and I really wanted to make getting outside with your child as easy as possible.
The activities in this box will allow you to observe your child’s involvement and gain and insight to their way of thinking. Shared activities also encourage conversations, a sense of achievement, belonging and a greater understand of one another.
I am not on a mission to tell parents why they should be getting there children outside (although i might mention the benefits from time to time), we all want out kids to be outside more having fun.
I’m on a mission to make that as easy and fun as possible for your child and the whole family.
all the fun, non of the prep
A bit about us: I’m Ellie, I have a degree in Design for Sustainable Futures, 10 years experience working with children in schools, play leader, children’s event management and as a Forest School leader. My daughter Neive, is two and comes to my pre-school groups. I have seen both her and the other children thrive and grow in confidence in the natural environment.
My mum is Jill, she has an Education degree and specialised in teaching science and environmental studies. As senior leader, she held the position of head of upper school and has 7 years experience running children’s residential holiday centres.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The box provides a range of activities which allow your child/ren to develop their skills, interests and understanding though practical, hands on experiences in the natural world.
They are aimed at children 2-6 years old and suitable for 1-2 children, I will be sending them out for delivery on the first week of March.
Inside the spring box you will get 6 nature actives:
- a colour hunt with paints
- leaf threading
- blossom play creation
- easter craft and games
- spring crown and cuff
- homemade playdough with activities
As well as all these you will have your own family spring calendar to help you plan when to do each one, see special spring dates and plot in some other spring exploring from a inspiration list I will provide. Not only that, you will have a spring spotter sheet to work though and in our first box we are including a surprise gift for your child that will really open their eyes to nature.
that’s 8+ hours of activities for spring and we hope the activities inspire the development of further unplanned and creative play
The Spring box is £35 so great for yourself or as a gift. If you would like to collect your box from Fleet just email me via the form below and this can be arrange to save the postage cost. This is available for UK only postage at this time.
Less than a family outing to the cinema
