Woodland adventure play at Westonbirt Arboretum

Family day out - stuck for ideas?

Come and build, create, discover and imagine as you play in amongst the trees.

Each booklets provides a treasure of great ideas for family play based around one of our four play themes:

  • build - from vole tunnels, mole castles and dormice bridges to giant nests and den building ideas.
  • create - from leaf scarves, bark boats and magic wands, to muddy smiles and mud creatures.
  • imagine - look through a window to another world, set up a play camp and interview a tree!
  • discover - go on a minibeast safari, try our 'whose poo?' challenge and have a great adventure off the beaten track.

These ideas have been developed in partnership with the Woodland Trust to encourage wild play in nature for children and adults of any age!
