Little Bugs Club is an outdoor growing club for parents and toddlers. Our two-hour sessions are all based around seasonal, farm-related activities such as seed sowing and plant care, harvesting, weeding and exploring nature. We also hunt for bugs, make things with natural materials and sing songs and play games to provide supported learning through play.

Keeping warm and dry

We feel that it is just as important for the children to experience the rain and wind as lovely sunshine but it is essential they are comfortable. We will do lots of energetic activities to keep warm but dressing your child in a number of warm layers and finishing with a hat (covering ears) and waterproof shoes (wellies) will help them to get the most from their time here.

Snacks

The children will be given a healthy, organic snack (such as carrot sticks, apple chunks, bread sticks etc) as part of each session. Where possible this will be seasonal and sometimes relating to that session’s theme.
