Come build with chocolate

Tue 9 Apr 2024, 10.30-12 then 12.45-1.45

Imagine a playground made out of chocolate! This Easter we are inviting children to not just imagining it but to come along and design and build a model one.  


Looking at playground examples from around the world and using our own imagination and experiences, we will create edible playgrounds. Each child will create their own model to take home. 


So, channel your inner Willy Wonka and come along to this creative take on being a playground designer. You will decorate your model using edible flowers, so your playground will be good for both children and biodiversity.  


Session suitable for children over 5. Each child requires a ticket, tickets are £7/child. Adults are free to stay or drop off. Children will need to bring a packed lunch, which will be eaten as the chocolate dries and before we start to decorate the models.  


We will not be using chocolate that contains nuts. For dietary concerns or other questions, please contact Sandra Hedblad, Head of Learning on
