Gardening club is a fantastic way for children to not just learn about planting and growing, but where our food comes from and is also a great outdoor activity. Eco Kids encourages children to get stuck in, exploring the soil for mini beasts, digging up the soil and planting a variety of vegetables, fruit and plants.
Their food sessions are always good messy fun, encouraging children to be interactive, allowing time to explore the food and not worrying about the mess! Eco Kids like to keep the sessions as seasonal and healthy as possible, helping children understand food and incorporating some of our ‘five a day’ in their recipes.
Have a look around their website to see what sort of activities they’ve run in the past with Sure Start Childrens Centres, schools, nurseries, and individuals, and give the local area manager a call.
They also run eco-themed parties for children, and gross fear-factor themed parties, a sure hit with the boys.
