Kids Summer of Fun
We appreciate how hard it is to keep the kids occupied throughout the summer holidays. That’s why we’ve organised a complete summer of FREE fun for the kids in our Barn. Our Summer of Fun is all about getting children to eat more vegetables. Veg is tasty and it can be fun, so our mission is to encourage children and their parents to have fun and enjoy vegetables. We will also be recycling where we can as this is very important to us.
Monday 22nd – Sunday 28th July - Eat More Veg Hunt.
Children will work their way through a form and go around the fruit and veg area, solving riddles and tasting veg. We also have some helpful hints on how to get children to eat more veg. When they have completed the form they will get a prize.
Monday 29th July - Sunday 4th August - Veg Painting
Using carrot paint brushes, corn rollers, celery stamps and much more, children can creates a masterpiece. See, we told you that veg was fun. They can then share their creations on our Facebook page and our favourite will win a veg growing kit.
Monday 5th - Sunday 11th August - CD Scarecrow
Using cardboard, bottle tops and old cds, children can make an scarecrow to protect their gardens and their veg patches.
Monday 12th - Sunday 18th August - Egg Carton Fruit & Veg
Using egg cartons, pipe cleaners, foam shapes and more; children can create egg box fruit and veg. Who knew that you could make a pumpkin out of an egg box?
Monday 29th - Sunday 25th August - Newspaper Baskets
Reducing our use of plastic is so important! Children can make a newspaper basket to transport their treasures. When they have finished they can pop a handful of pea pods in their basket. They are a tasty, healthy snack. This activity is great for older kids and younger children will love making a basket with adult support.
Monday 26th August - Sunday 1st Sept - Veg Super Heroes
Vegetables are so super that they should have a cape! This week we will be using felt, wobbly eyes and lots more to turn vegetables into superheroes.
Each activity will run Monday - Sunday, 10am - 4pm.
