Little Eden parent and under-fives club
- Takes place on Thursday mornings
- Sessions scheduled until 30 March
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.
“There is always a selection of activities like bubbles, a mud kitchen and crafts and Jasmine loves toasting marshmallows on the fire.”

In our New Year term our theme is ‘making tracks’ – looking at animal tracks and making our own with cob. We are also planning a pirate treasure hunt and a Valentine’s session making ‘love potions’ and weaving wicker hearts.
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 scheduled right up until 30 March 2017.
We hope that you’ll come along to as many of the 6-8 sessions per term as possible, so that you get to know each other, form friendships and grow skills. For our January/February sessions 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 – and we’ll have a tent and a portaloo.
When you book we'll send you joining instructions by email.
How to book
Little Eden is only £7.50 per child per session (£7 for children of Eden Project Members). At the start of each term you have the opportunity to book all sessions for a discounted bulk price.
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. You don’t need an Eden admission ticket to take part.
