The mysteries of mud will finally be unravelled at Worcestershire Wildlife Trust during February half term with the help of eager participants who are up for mucky madness whatever the weather.

The Trust will be running a range of games and activities aimed at getting children aged 5 -12 involved in the great outdoors and getting some fresh air during the holidays. Whether it’s sunny, drizzling or coming down in buckets, this event will go ahead; wellies are recommended!

Who knows, we may even see mud pie on the menu!

“Children will be given the chance to unwind and spend quality time outside, which is often difficult during the winter months with daylight drawing in so early.”

The action will include searching deep within the woodland at Lower Smite Farm and following the footprints to seek out the mysterious creatures that inhabit the wilderness. Children will then create a ‘mud monster’ to protect the woodland creatures from the primitive predators living deep within the wood.

They will be given the opportunity to plant their own seeds to help the woodland flourish and will discover all the fun that is to be had with mud.

The event offers the chance to explore the natural beauty of the woodland and treasure the rural surroundings of Lower Smite Farm whilst the children have an afternoon of laughter, frolic and fun.

It will take place on 17th February commencing at 2pm in the afternoon and will round off at 4pm. It costs just £3.50 per child to enter and booking is essential on 01905 754919 or email Hannah.
