Queenswood Country Park is offering pre-school children the chance to safely explore the great outdoors with its new Adventure Tots sessions.
The sessions, which are run by Herefordshire Council’s countryside team, will be held throughout March and are aimed at pre-school children aged two and over along with their parents / guardians. The sessions will provide an exciting, safe and unique experience in the fantastic woodland setting at Queenswood.
Hannah Dalton, Herefordshire Council’s countryside ranger, said: “We have designed the programme to allow pre-school children to explore all their senses, use their imagination, be creative and enjoy getting messy outdoors. The sessions will include some aspects of forest schools and will finish with a story, hot chocolate and a fruit snack, as all that fresh air will make them very hungry!
“As a parent or guardian, you’ll be able to pick up some great tips and ideas for natural play, make new friends and get the chance to spend some quality one-on-one time with your child, whilst experiencing a great adventure together.
“Over the four weeks, we will explore the woods looking for textures and sounds, make musical instruments, create wands and magic potions, build dens and have a cosy campfire to toast marshmallows. We hope you’ll come along and join in the fun.”
The sessions will take place every Tuesday and Thursday throughout March from 10:00am to 11:30am. There are only 10 child places available for each session, so you must book your place to avoid disappointment. The cost for the four sessions on either a Tuesday or a Thursday is £24, which is payable upon booking.
Please note that unfortunately due to the type of activities taking place, it will not be possible to be accompanied by younger siblings, including babies in slings.
