Seed Bombing on a Wild Walk

Thursday 11 April | 11.00am - 12.00pm

Taking the seed bombs that we previously made, we will go on a Wild Walk armed with them and throw them wherever we spot an open, unused space. We’ll create beautiful flower patches as we go and these will attract lots of wildlife.

Seed Bomb Making

Wednesday 10 April | 10.00 - 11.00am

If you love nature and want to brighten your neighbourhood, come and get messy making seed bombs using wildflower seeds, flour and water. Once the bombs have dried, they can be used to attract butterflies and beautify your garden or nearby unused green spaces.

Play With Clay

Thursday 11 April | 10.00 - 11.00am

Clay is a natural resource which can be used in so many different ways. Come and have fun whilst being creative with this wonderful material and see what you can come up with.

Nature Painting

Wednesday 10 April | 11.00am - 12.00pm

Using all natural tools and ingredients such as pine cones, twigs and leaves, the aim of the game is to roll out a long strip of paper and paint a huge natural masterpiece. Or make lots of little ones! Who knows? Let’s get creative.
