Mud Pies Classes…
Sticks and Stones
Aberdeen’s activity class for the under 2s and their adults to have fun in the outdoors. Classes will resume again after the Easter holidays.
Classes will run on Wednesday mornings, 10am to 11.30am, at Hazlehead Park, Aberdeen. We start with a 30 minute pushchair walk at adult pace through the woods, followed by an hour of play amongst the trees. The walk gives parents some fresh air whilst the play session encourages children to have fun through exploring and investigating.*
Early years education encourages children to experience outdoor spaces in their own way, so this is deliberately a very informal class. Those not yet walking can investigate baskets of natural items such as cones, stones and household objects. Mobile tots collect sticks and stones in little beach buckets, dig in the mud patch, draw with chalk and play with the toy cars and diggers. We also explore in the woods, feeling the bark of trees, touching soft leaves, rolling balls down hills and lots more!
* this half hour walk is optional. Feel free to meet us at the woods around 10.30am for an hour of play if the walk is not your kind of thing!
Outdoor adventures for 24 months to 5 years! Classes run on Mondays and Thursdays. Due to the road between Kingswells and Cults being closed both Monday and Thursday classes will take place at Hazlehead Park in Aberdeen.
