February half term family fun at Wicken Fen

A family walking at Wicken Fen

Join us at Wicken Fen this half term for some family fun in the outdoors. Drop in for seasonal fun activities or book one of our led activities, hire a bike or discover MOTHER… our new artwork installation.

Seasonal fun at the Fen

Drop into the visitor centre for craft activities and ideas for outdoor adventures. We’ll be offering different activities each day:

Complete some of our ‘50 things to do before you’re 113/4’:

#43 Help a wild animal: help your garden birds survive the winter by making a DIY bird feeder to take home,

#12 Have fun with sticks: Get busy building with our natural building blocks in the Family Discovery Area, #44 Watch a bird: What birds can you spot at Wicken Fen today? Borrow some binoculars and head outdoors!

Make a promise to help nature:

Do something small or do something big, the choice is yours.  Everyone can do something to help our natural world.  Make your own promise for nature and write it down, then hang it in our promise gallery.

Take the Woodland Walk for Family Fun

Just a hop skip and a jump from the Visitor Centre you’ll find our Woodland Walk.  It’s a buggy friendly route that takes you through the trees to our ’50 things to do before you’re 113/4’  area.  If you’ve not completed any of our 50 Things before, you can pick up one of the wall charts in the Visitor Centre before you head out.  Drop in any time to #4 build a den or #25 join nature’s band.
