What makes our club so amazing for all children is the diversity of activities and resources that we have to offer during the sessions. We know children love to try lots of different games & actvities, that’s why we offer such a broad range so that there is something for everyone.

Sports, Games & the Outdoors

We believe strongly in encouraging children to have a go and enjoy sports, physical activity and outdoor fun. We have lots of activities which are supervised and supported by sports coaches and forest school trained staff. Here are our top 5 favorite sports & outdoor activities:

  • Go-Karts and Scooters
  • Football Academy
  • Den Making
  • Archery
  • Parachute Games

Growing & Nature Activities

We also love spending time outside just playing and exploring nature. The children love

  • Making things with natural resources such as nature mobiles and bow and arrows.
  •  Growing their own flowers, fruit and vegetables. One of our favourites is growing sunflowers.
  • Wildlife hunts and we enjoy watching the lifecycles of tadpoles to frogs and caterpillars to butterflies each year too

Arts & Crafts

Our arts and crafts activities encourage creativity. Children can access our huge stock of arts and crafts materials to make whatever they like or join in with the planned art projects. We link our arts and crafts projects to topics that we are covering, ideas from the children and we love to try out any of the latest crazes. Our latest projects include:

  • Making and designing jewellery & key rings
  • Clay modelling & Derbyshire rock painting
  • Cool slime making with glitters, colours & scents
  • Tie-dye t-shirts & pencil cases
  • Magical wands, treasure maps & shields


Baking and taking home the lovely treats are one of the children’s favourite activities. We help & encourage children to follow recipes from scratch, using ingredients to make some mouth-watering delights. While we are baking, we like to learn about where our ingredients come from and fun facts that are linked to any topic or festival that the recipe is about. Things that we are really good at baking are:

  • Making our own pizza’s including the base
  • Making & decorating sweets
  • Milkshakes, Smoothies & fruit kebabs
  • Chocolate Brownies
  • Cupcakes and then decorating with some cool designs  

Fun Science Experiments

We love nothing more than to get dressed up in our science lab coats & glasses and investigate the science experiment challenges. Each experiment we do either physics, chemistry or biology is a fun interactive activity that teaches and puts into practice basic scientific skills. Science experiments we have had the most fun with are

  • Creating our own exploding volcano
  • Ice detective dinosaur eggs
  • Static electricity – The mad scientist balloon game
  • Surface control buggies
  • The floating & sinking challenge
