Today’s post on Bristol Mum is about activities for children, young people and families with a difference. Badgers Forest School Bristol offers inspiring woodland activities through their Little Badgers Carer and Toddler group, children’s parties, and school groups, too.
The Little Badgers Carer and Toddler Group is for children 1-4 years of age, along with mums, dads and carers. It involves a nature trail around the woods, exploring and enjoying the wonders of nature. Winter does not get in the way of Little Badgers and runs throughout Winter; camp fires are lit, free hot drinks are provided and active games are played to keep everyone warm.
My friend has been taking her little boy to Little Badgers for a year. She describes her experience of Little badgers from a mum’s perspective:
“We have done all manner of activities from picking wild garlic to turn into fritters to cook on an open fire, to using hand drills to make wooden wind chimes to hang in the woods. There is plenty of time to explore and the children love the freedom of the open space. It is a great opportunity to meet with other parents who value contact with nature for themselves and their family.”
“Stories and singing are often part of the session and the sense of fulfilment as we sit singing around an open fire is incredible. I feel joining Emily, the forest leader, and the other parents and children has been a brilliant addition to our week.”
Little Badgers Carer and Toddler Group runs on the following days:
Tuesdays and Thursdays at Leigh Woods: 9.15 – 10.45am, 11.10am – 12.40pm and 1.30 – 3pm.
Wednesdays at Wraxall Piece, Beggar Bush Lane: 9.30 – 11am.

Badgers Forest School also offers parties with a difference for all ages and in all seasons. Parties include nature trails, tracking games, ‘Wild Hide and Seek’ and camp fires built to cook party food on!
Parties can be held on any day of the week and cost £10 per child weekdays and £12 per child at weekends.
Badgers Forest School is available for school groups, too, and includes climate change games, treasure hunts, cooking over camp fires and environmental art and crafts.
But Badgers Forest School can come to schools, also. Maybe you are a teacher and would like help developing your school grounds to provide more of a natural environment for the children and attract more wildlife?
