Do you have, or know of, any children aged 3 years old or above? Are you already a nervous wreck, seeing the Summer Holidays stretching out in front of you, wondering how are you going to entertain them for more than 6 weeks?!
Never fear, Sutton Ecology Centre has a fun-packed programme of events throughout the summer holidays to reduce your burden, just a little! And we all know that a good dose of fresh air always tires them out!
The fun kicks off with a Wandle Wildlife Fun Day on 1st August. There will be a trail of hidden pictures and information about the animals you could find along the River Wandle, as well as a chance to get up-close with some of the creatures that live in and along the River, including dragonfly nymphs, water boatmen and moths. You may even be lucky enough to spot a gorgeous kingfisher!
There’ll be a craft activity and lots of information from the experts to entertain and educate you and the little ones, so why come along and dip your toes in?
This is a drop in activity, so no need to book, just turn up any time between 11am and 2pm.
The cost is £4 per child, 3 years and up.
You’ll need to book onto the Go Wild for Bees day on 8th August to avoid disappointment. Your little ones will learn all about why bees are so busy, through playing fun games, tasting honey and making and decorating a bee hotel to take home (plus we’ll throw some free wild flower seeds in too, so you can promote bees at home)!
Only £5 per child, ages 3 years an up. Book here: http://188.8.131.52/suttonecology/
Lastly, come and join in with the Flower Fairies Adventure on either the 14th or 15th August. Find the fairies with their flowers, plants and trees, listen to fairy stories on the lawn, make fairy gates and gardens and make your own natural flower fairy or elf to take home. This is also a drop-in activity ,so no need to book, just turn up any time between 11am and 2pm on either day.
Again, only £4 per child, ages 3 and up.
With all of this, plus lots of fun Wildlings Forest School activities such as mallet making and a 3-day camp, you need look no further to make this Summer Holiday a huge success!
