Have you got adventure loving kids that enjoy getting muddy? Last weekend I grabbed my kids and headed to Belvoir Castle to join TV explorer Ed Stafford and take part in the Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder obstacle course. It was a fantastic experience I’d thoroughly recommend. Courses are running up and down the UK until the end of September so there are lots of opportunities for you and your kids to get involved too.
Stick Raft Building STEM Project. Can you build a raft that really floats? How much weight can your stick raft carry? Can your raft cope in a real stream? This STEM challenge is great fun for kids and a super way to get them stretching and developing their skills and engaging with Nature.
Ready, steady, slow! See how we use SNAIL RACING to learn SNAIL FACTS. This is such a fun ANIMAL SCIENCE activity for the whole family to enjoy together and a great way for kids to learn about our slimy garden snail friends.
Do your kids love all things circus? Release their inner clown making and playing with these easy no-sew juggling balls. Juggling is a fun activity to develop gross motor skills, balance, co-ordination and of course patience and determination too!
Here’s a fun challenge…can you build a nest using natural materials just like real birds do? NO GLUE OR TAPE ALLOWED!!! This “Make A Birds Nest” STEAM project is a fun way to challenge your kids and get them testing out their ideas and problem solving.

Autumn is a wonderful time of year for kids to try “Painting with Nature”. This simple process art technique allows kids to explore and create textures and patterns in a fun, open-ended and hands-on way, creating unique and interesting art.
We sure do love getting arty with leaves! So many wonderful shapes, colours and textures to observe. This week we’ve been having a lovely time creating bold Charcoal Leaf Pictures. Charcoal is a super medium for kids to explore and the end results are just gorgeous.
