Fairy forest mums, dads and tots
Calling all Mums, dads and toddlers! Get together in the woods!
Come play in the woods including fairy house building, hammocks, mud play and much more. Soak up the woodland atmosphere and meet like minded families.
Your kids will learn forest arts and crafts, to interact with other kids and explore the woodland. Then we’ll get together for a campfire snack. They’ll learn some simple rules for using tools, being around a fire and cooking something on a stick.
Expect to be out in all weathers but we’ll have hot and cold drinks available.
Tea/coffee/drinks included and a campfire snack.
What to expect?
We'll meet at the car park before setting off to base camp where you have an option of exploring and enjoying our 'help yourself' activities such as mud play & hammocks. Or join us on a led activity as we explore our fairy landscape building gardens, houses roads and more
As the weeks progress we'll be adding more activities and extending our enchanted woodland narrative making fairy artefacts such as tables, chairs, fences and more.
Sessions are child led with an underlying structured activity which you can duck in and out of as it suits you and your child. We'll be learning to use some simple tools safely as we get into our sessions as per the forest school ethos. We're out in all weathers (except high wind) so remember to dress appropriately and have extra clothes in the car.
Your child will learn:
Social interaction with other children and adults
Fine motor skills from tying string and making things
Strength and stamina from playing outside
An appreciation of nature
To use their imagination, tell tale tales and express themselves creatively.
Parents will be able to meet other mums and dads with similar age children and interests, have a brew and a chat whilst assisting their child play.
We'll come together near the end and light a fire to toast a snack such as brioche, tea cakes, etc. which we'll mix up as the sessions continue through the weeks.
Minimum 8 children. We think sessions work best when we have an existing group of mums/dads and children. If you think you’ve got a group of interested mums (or dads) then get in touch. Click here to see why established groups works best.
To book just get in touch to arrange a date/venue/time - deposit for each session below and then any additional attendees can click on the extra places button.
At just £8 per child session we think its a bargain. NB 1st 8 places needs to be covered to cover the cost of running - this lets a core group organise attending and then you other parents can add extra children as needed.
Forest School programme Deposit - 8 places
Book several sessions or children.
Oh no no no! Our forest elf has crashed Santa's Sleigh and its shed its load of pressies and candy canes all over the wood. Can you help recover all the lost presents and put them back in Santa's sack so we can get them fixed in time for Christmas? You can keep any candy canes we find as long as we share them all out, after all Christmas is a time for giving.
Then our elf will cook you a campfire lunch to say thank you as well as hot drinks and mince pies. Worried about the cold - remember to wear appropriate clothes. We have a woodland stove and hot water so if you're prone to the cold bring a hot water bottle and enjoy a hot chocolate, Yorkshire tea or percolated coffee.

Fruity pop lollypop
Our sweets are suitable for vegan/vegetarian. Sadly the wrappers have a small amount of plastic but every thing else is plastic free.
We include a birthday badge for your forest party but some parents enjoy treating all the kids to a bespoke name badge. Badges are made from a locally sourced coppiced wood (usually ash or hazel) usually as part of our ongoing woodland management attached to a lanyard. We burn on the name using a pyrography kit so make sure the spelling is correct. You can add names whilst making the order on the button or just email the list of names to Rawdon@fairyforestschool.com . If you’ve extra birthdays on the day don’t forget to tell us what age they’ll be turning.
We make these to order so please tell us at least 48 hours before the party - in practice we do these on Friday for a party over the weekend.
Add a whistle to each badge for just £1 more. Great as a keepsake for a special party. Attached to a backpack these are good for emergencies. Please note not suitable for very young children without adult supervision due to small size.
We'll send you payment details via email so get in touch email@example.com
