Little Eden parent and under-fives club
- Thursday mornings
- For parents, carers and under-5s
- No Eden admission ticket required
- 20% discount for two children
A weekly club for parents and under-fives set in Eden’s magical wild perimeters, where together we celebrate the great outdoors through games and stories, quests and hunts, making and creating, and campfire cooking.
This new club for parents and carers and their under-fives is designed to help children and their families play and learn together through outdoor games and activities.
What sort of things we get up to
Each week we meet in beautiful ancient fields and woodland on Eden’s outer estate for an hour and a half, where we’ll get you and your child involved in games and stories, quests and treasure hunts, making and creating things, and even campfire cooking activities.
This autumn term we have some fantastic activities coming up, including painting with blackberries, making ‘snail soup’, creating hobby horses, charcoal making, getting creative with bird feeders, Halloween potion making, designing your own Cornish ‘piskie’, and an autumn treasure hunt.
You can see what we've been up to recently on our Little Eden Facebook page.
“There is always a selection of activities like bubbles, a mud kitchen and crafts and Jasmine loves toasting marshmallows on the fire.”

Who it’s for
Little Eden is for children of pre-school age (aged 18 months to five years) and their parents or carers. You’ll be part of a group of up to 17 children. The idea is that you accompany your child throughout the session.
When it happens
Little Eden takes place on Thursday mornings (10am until 11.30am) – with sessions currently bookable right up until the end of May.
We hope that you’ll come along to as many of the weekly sessions per term as possible, so that you get to know each other, form friendships and grow skills. You can book your child onto all six sessions at the start of the term, at a discounted price.
Where it takes place
The sessions are set at the magical Little Carne Farm, in Eden’s wider estate. (We’ll send you directions once you’ve booked.) We plan to be outside every week unless the weather is dangerously bad. We have a wonderful shelter around our fire, so a bit of drizzle is no problem. We also have a composting loo.
When you book we'll send you joining instructions by email.
How to book
There is no need to buy an Eden Project admission ticket; instead, simply book a place on the session/s of your choice.
Little Eden is only £7.50 per child per session (£7 for children of Eden Project Members). Or if you're bringing two children along to the session, you'll get a 20% discount – so both can come along for £12.
At the beginning of each term you can also choose our discounted block booking option of £42 for the whole six-week term (19, 26 April, and 3, 10, 17, 24 May). If you're bringing two children along to the session you'll get a further 20% discount.
Adults accompany little ones for free. You’re welcome to bring up to two children aged five and under (but please a maximum of one adult per child). Babies in arms, slings, pushchairs or back packs can come for free.
If you’re an Eden Project Member, to get your discounted rate please log in to our bookings website before choosing your individual sessions from the ‘Events’ top menu. Alternatively, book by calling our Box Office on 01726 811972.
