Spring Craft Activity Packs

We are excited to share with you our new Spring (Easter) Forest School Craft Packs for children!

The kit has been lovingly put together with a range of Spring Nature Crafts and activities -perfect for Easter or just welcoming and celebrating the joys of spring! The pack includes a range of resources and activities. Aimed mainly at ages 3-8. The packs are Forest School inspired – helping children to develop a love and passion for nature.

In more ‘normal years’ the Friends of Rowntree Park run a range of children’s events including regular Forest School as well as art and crafts, gardening, and environmental sessions at Rowntree Park in York. Our Christmas craft packs proved very popular, so we wanted to offer more activity packs for our Young Friends to keep up their love and passion for nature.

What do you get?

The pack includes 4 activities with resources for you to do at home, and 4 additional suggested activities to do with your child in nature. Activities include making Snowdrop folk, Nature Wands, Blossom trees and Birds, and Bunnies and much more! These are activities that can be spread out over a number of days – many hours of searching for treasure in nature and crafting and creating!
