Thank you for visiting this exhibition.
This exhibition was born from the displays in the Eton Natural History Museum, and focuses on sharing the science and stories of our remarkable woodlands. We’d love to hear your thoughts and showcase your activities and responses! Here we have links to all the pages which have prompts and activities, and a bank of resources for crafting activities, teaching using museum collections, and more. This page will continue to grow, with more activities and resources being added over the coming months – so be sure to check back in for more woodland inspiration.
Easter activities for families
Things to see, make and do this Easter! Connect with nature in your neighbourhood using our activity pack. Find a local walk or explore in your garden:
If you are local to Eton download the Eton version which includes a local wildwood walk around the Brocas and South Meadow:
Our museum mascots Florrie and Tony have been popping up throughout the exhibition with lots of activities to try. These are aimed at a Key Stage 1 and 2 level, with an emphasis on working together with older siblings, parents, teachers, and friends.
They are, however, fun and relevant for all ages, suitable for younger children with help and for older children and adults as a starting point for exploration and discussion.
