Stone Age Skills Day (Lampeter)

October 28, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

stone age skills day for kids in wales

Transport your kids back to the Stone Age for a day of discovering skills from our ancient past. Make your own cave art with natural pigments, make and keep your own bullroarer to take home, practise your stalking skills with our hunting games, build a ‘bender’ shelter and discover the secret of fire! So, grab your club and get ready to unleash your inner “ugg!”

This October half term week, we’re hosting this a full day of stone age themed adventures in the woods. The day is aimed at children aged 7-12 years. Activities will be led by James Kendall and Ryan Knight-Fox.

So what happens on a day like this? Well, kids will get into tribes and work together to craft their own bullroarer (an ancient aboriginal tool used to signal across long distances), they will learn about how to make rock art using natural earth pigments like red ochre, they can get stuck into a range of games designed to test their hunting and stalking skills – if they can keep quiet for long enough 🙂 We will also try our hands at making natural cordage from plants in the woods. Lastly, we will also look at an ancient way of making a natural shelter from hazel rods, called a ‘bender.’

We will also have a host of stone age replica props that the children cna investigate and learn about life in Aboriginal Britain. Of course, there will be plenty of time for woodland games and letting off steam between trying out  the range of ‘dangerous’ activities we have planned.

We will have some snacks and cold drinks available, but kids should bring their own packed lunch too.

Places are limited, so book early to avoid missing out.

Please be assured that all activities are closely supervised by experienced activity leaders. We want your kids to be safe, whilst they’re “time-travelling”  🙂

Get in touch if you’d like to know more. Advance booking is essential. Phone James, 07876 794098 or email us.

Tickets are £27 per child and £25 for each additional sibling. This event is being run on Saturday 28th October, 10am – 3pm.

All activities are based around our forest school shelter, log-built roundhouse and surrounding woods. Children will make new friends and learn new skills whilst enjoying a fantastic day out in nature, all led by experienced activity leaders.

The venue, Denmark Farm Conservation Centre is a beautiful 40 acre nature reserve with woods, meadows and ponds, just buzzing with wildlife – waiting for your kids to explore.

Parents don’t stay with their children during this event. Our woodland activity days are all supervised by trained and experienced staff… that’s us. If your child has special needs that you feel would require a parent or guardian to stay with them for the day though, we would advise getting in touch with us in advance of making a booking and we’ll see what we can arrange. We like to be as inclusive as we can.
