We are so lucky to be able to run this popular session in the wonderful grounds of the Rococo Garden. It is a true gem featuring beautiful flower beds, ponds, an orchard, kitchen garden, maze, meadow and woodland, and not forgetting the follies, of course.
During our sessions, we have a slow wander through the garden, often focussing our attention on finding specific aspects like colour, texture or leaves. We might hunt bugs in the meadow or check what the pond creatures are up to and if we can spot any newts. We might also do some games on the bowling green, e.g. with the parachute or ropes.
The second half of the session is usually spent in the Hidden Hollow adventure playground, where families can have a snack (bring your own), children have free play and we often do a crafty activity. We always finish off with storytime.
Rococo Garden Sprites is suitable for children between 18 months and 6 years. We would recommend that children are good walkers when they join us as we do travel around the whole of the garden; it is possible to use an offroad type buggy and lots of parents bring slings/carriers to transport the children back at the end of the session.
