    Details

    Spend the afternoon outdoors and be creative as a family. Take time to notice the beautiful landscape around Dove Cottage, experience it through a child’s eyes and ‘let Nature be your teacher’. Spot constellations in wildflowers, think of unusual ways to describe a stream, and hunt for hidden objects in the Dove Cottage garden.

    How can you make a poem from a twig, a pebble and some leaves? What beautiful art can be created from found natural objects? What can we learn from viewing nature and poetry differently?

    Perfect for older children (and grown-ups too).
