50 things to do in winter
It's a bit chilly outside but that doesn’t stop you getting outdoors and having fun together. Nature misses you, so this winter try some seasonal 50 things to do before you're 11 ¾. Play in the snow, run around in the rain or spot some birds in the bare winter trees.
So many great places to play outdoors
Take the zip wire challenge, balance on a log or build a den in our natural play area. If you’ve great imagination, discover our storyboat or maybe it’s a pirate ship or a even cruise liner on a round the world trip? For the little ones, there’s lots of hands-on play with activity boards outside the café.
A great day out for groups
Whether you’re visiting for a whole day, half a day or just two hours, there’s always something new to for groups to see and do. You can visit by yourselves or take part in one of our many lead activities for old and young alike.
Despite the cold weather we start to see signs of spring appearing as green shoots peep up from the ground. The birds start to sing more and they are easier to spot in the bare winter trees.
Look out for:
- Great tits hoping in the trees and singing their ‘see saw’ song
- Winter visitors such as Little egrets (small white herons)
- Snowdrops coming out at the end of the month
