Father Christmas in the crystal Grotto
The festive adventure begins by exploring the winter landscape for clues to find the crystal Grotto and the Wishing Tent. In the Wishing Tent, the children will make a HUGE Christmas card whilst small groups take turns to meet Father Christmas in the Grotto. Each child will receive a small gift. As soon as everyone has seen Father Christmas, the whole class will go into the Grotto to sing him a carol.
This activity lasts 2 hours and can be combined with our Natural Christmas Decoration Workshop, Christmas Scavenger Hunt or any other led or self-led activity from our programme for a festive day out.
Natural Christmas Decoration Workshop
Search the evergreens in the winter woods for holly and ivy and make an amazing Christmas card collage to photograph and send to friends. Back at the Education Centre, children will use their scavenged treasures to make willow stars, tree decorations and a mini wreath.
For the second half of the day, explore the wonderful winter landscape on a self-led trail.
November and December only.
