HOLIDAY PROGRAMME 2014 AT THE HERMITAGE EDINBURGH

Welcome back to THE NATURAL PLAYGROUND HOLIDAY PROGRAMME at THE HERMITAGE Edinburgh

 

Workshops are for children aged between 5 and 9 years of age. They will run between the 10th- 20th July. I typically run two session times a day and I can take a maximum of 8 children per session. Children will need a snack and wet weather gear. Welly boots would be a good idea. We will meet at the visitors centre at The Hermitage.

Booking is essential so please call or email me if you would like to book your child on a session. The sessions are below.

COST £5 per child per session

SESSION TIMES

MORNING  10:00am-12:00pm

AFTERNOON 1:00pm-3:00pm

 

10th-12th July

ART IN NATURE

We will look at the art of Andy Goldsworthy and create our own works of art using natural materials. Children are welcome to bring their own digital cameras to take a picture of their creations and preserve a lasting memory of their artworks. This workshop lends itself to the intermixing of nature and technology.

13th-15th July

POND DIPPING AND MINIBEASTS

We will be exploring the miniature world of The Hermitage what lies beneath our feet and in our streams? Welly boots essential!

16th-18th July

SHELTER BUILDING AND CAMOUFLAGE

How do animals protect themselves from the elements can you build your own shelter. Children get to try their hands at  their own summer survival skills! Can they do better than other animals that inhabit The Hermitage?

19th-20th

FUN IN THE WOODS- EXPLORATION, SCAVENGER HUNTS AND NATURE TRAILS

We will start with a walk through The Hermitage and then explore some of the species that live in the Hermitage. What trees grow in the park, what species can we find. Children use their detective skills to uncover rare species.
