Explorers wanted! Bug hunting, puddle splashing and an all-round adventure!

Nature Tots at RSPB Arne is a monthly nature group aimed at preschool children aged between 2 ½ and 5 years old.

Booking essential.

Join us as we head out to discover some of the amazing creatures that we are giving a home to on our nature reserve. The natural world is filled with all sorts of wonders just waiting to be discovered by your little ones. We could be searching for storybook characters in the woods, meeting some brilliant bugs, and getting a bit mucky! We'll also play some games, do some crafting and learn something new, but most importantly - we'll have lots of fun!

The sessions are designed to be as hands-on and sensory as possible, encouraging child-led exploration and natural play. Activities will include minibeast hunting, worm charming, butterfly hunting, outdoor games and storytelling. Each session will focus on a different theme including activities, a story, and a craft to take home. 

We'll be going outside in all weathers, so don't forget your wellies/sunhat depending on the forecast.
