Little Explorers


Selected dates, 30 March to 23 November 2020 (excluding August)

Join us for a fun-filled, child-led adventure in the inspirational surroundings of Kew Gardens, as we investigate nature though hands-on activities and outdoor exploration. Children aged 2-5 and their parents/ carers connect with and learn from nature together, helping to build confidence and a sense of adventure. Sessions follow a relaxed routine with some activities indoors and some outdoors, whatever the weather (so please dress accordingly).

Typical activities include nature-based crafts, sensory play, seed planting, story time, and seasonal nature hunts. Each month we focus on a different theme, see below for details:
  • 30 March: Signs of Spring - Make daffodil art, plant a seed and go on a Spring scavenger hunt.
  • 27 April: What is a Seed? - Scoop and sort different types of seeds, plant a sunflower and go on a fun seed hunt.
  • 18 May: Bees and Pollination - Investigate our bee-friendly sensory play-doh, make a bee puppet and practice your 'waggle dance', before heading outdoors in search for bees!
