Nature Games

Nature games are short activities and games that encourage you to discover the wonderful world of nature through all your senses.


On a typical Earthwalk you might discover the rainbow of natural colours in the Wild Oaks Woods and capture bits of each colour with the aid of a sticky 'paintbox' that will be yours to take home, Tune into the natural sounds around you and make a sound map of what you hear. Use your nose to make smell sundaes from the nicest smelling things that you can find in the woods and find a special place to leave it for the woodland Fairies and Gnomes. Catch a shadow using the special shadow catching equipment and discover what is rough, smooth, tickly and prickly in the woods.

Children as young as two years old can enjoy these activities with the help of other members of the family and each set of activities is tailored specifically for the abilities of your group.

If your family or group would like to try any of the 'Families in the Woods' activities please call Elspeth on 07747042197 for further details and to discuss what activities would suit you best.

Families in the woods activities are a great way to get in touch with the environment and get to know the area when you are on holiday and are ideal for birthday parties for outdoorsy kids.

Activities generally take place between 2.00pm and 4.00pm any day of the week though other times may be possible by prior arrangement. Family tickets admitting two adults and two children to the two hour group activities cost £20. Other groups can easily be accommodated and are charged depending on the size of the group. Booking is essential for all Families in the Woods activities.

For all activities in the woods please come wearing clothes you don't mind getting a bit mucky, trousers are best as they will protect you from any nettles you may encounter, and strong shoes or boots.

Areas used for group work are monitored on a regular basis and all activities are risk assessed by the experienced staff at Wild Oak Woods.
