Build Me a Home

I'm a Child – Get Me Outta Here!

Play and Display
How do bats see? Why are most of the little creatures that live in wood and grasslands brown and green? What do seeds need to become plants? How does a food web work?

Each party also involves an arts and crafts session so that children can take their creativity home with them.
