Help your little ones discover a wilder Cheshire at Nature Tots in Spud Wood

Nature Tots is Cheshire Wildlife Trust’s toddler group aimed at encouraging pre-school children, aged 2-4, to gain a love for nature and wildlife. These sessions are held outdoors and encourage young children to explore the natural environment.

Nick Rowles, Wild Communities Officer (North), said: “We do lots of different activities; we hunt for mini-beasts, play games, we search for twigs, leaves, seeds and make natural crafts to take home, we tell stories and have lots of fun exploring. There is no indoor area so please dress to keep warm and get muddy!”

Thanks to the support of players of People’s Postcode Lottery, the Trust is offering free sessions at Spud Wood every Wednesday, from 10am to 11.30am during term time and slots are currently available from June 12 to July 17.

Booking is essential and all children need to be accompanied by an adult with one adult accompanying no more than 3 children. There is a maximum capacity of 15 children per session. Visit http://www.cheshirwildifetrust.org.uk/events to make a booking.
