Little Woodland Explorers is an outdoor Montessori inspired woodland play session based in Malton Castle Garden’s walled woodland, nestled right in the heart of Malton! These weekly sessions exist to heighten season awareness, outdoor confidence and opportunities to forge new friendships for all ages ranging from birth to beyond! Our woodland play activities rotate from week to week and include nature walks where we observe wildlife in their natural habitats and hunt for seasonal treasures. Art based activities include painting using traditional or mud based paints with a variety of natural and handmade brushes. We make our own plant based dyes to print with using leaves, fruit and flowers found in the gardens. Further activities available: – Den building – Mud play – Stories in our Teepee library – Target practice with our spud launcher….
We wind up each session with hot chocolate in Winter or fresh juice in Summer, parents or carers are always welcome to bring a picnic.
