Brockholes is the place to be this weekend, with a range of fun activities for children of all ages.

The fun begins with Wild Jewellery Making this Friday and Saturday from 11am to 3pm

Elder, pewter and other natural materials will be used to create elegant natural jewellery – the kind of thing which would make a great gift for Mother’s Day.

Choose a design or create one yourself, make a mould from wet sand, melt down the pewter and cast your pendant (there is a charge to cover materials etc of £2 per item created).

Finish the gift off with a handmade recycled gift bag - FREE

Activities are fully supervised and suitable for ages 4 +.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Also on Friday, March 28, are the Brockholes Nature Tots.

These run from 9.30am-10.45am for children ages 15 months to 3 years and from 11am to 12.15pm for children aged 3-5 years.

The sessions are every Friday in school term time at a cost of £4 per child.

Nature Tots is an opportunity for tots to explore the outdoors and take part in nature themed activities.

Parents/guardians will accompany their tots during the sessions where we will discover and explore the nature reserve as well as do some indoor nature craft activities.

If you have children in each age group then you only need to pay for the child of the correct age to tale part in that session, however the other children are welcome to stay and join in with the session.

The two sessions will be the same on each day, however the activities for the older ones will be slightly more in depth.

Suitable outdoor clothing is required; wellies, waterproof, sun hat, sun cream etc.

Pre-booking is strongly advised. For more information or to book please call 01772 872000.
