Babes In The Wood – Rescheduled date!

March 17 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

£1.50 - £5

Over the winter months our woodland pre-school group ‘Babes in the Wood’ has moved to Castlebank Park, Lanark for more nature related fun and games. This group is suitable for all pre-school children and attending adults.


We meet each month to play nature games, treasure hunts, explore the plants, trees and animals that live there and collect materials to take inside to the community space at Castlebank Park to make nature and seasonal crafts and activities.  This group is aimed at helping young children create a closer bond with the natural world around them and enjoy their local nature spaces. We will also provide warm drinks and snacks in the community room and provide space for parents and carers to connect and meet like-minded people.


Come and join us for our March session, a fun morning making wooden spoon and stick puppets @Castlebank Park Horticultural Centre.  We’ll then take our puppets down to the Fair Dell to find some more fun characters and play with our own shadow puppet theatre.

**Please note that for this session, we will meet at the Community room at the centre before heading down to the Fairy Dell later**


We will then gather around the fire for stories and snacks at the end of the session.


The session will run from 10.30-12.00


Tickets are £5 per adult and child and £1.50 for each additional sibling or adult and are available here:
