6 Activities to Occupy the Kids

Keeping the young 'uns entertained is a full-time job - so we've collected our favourite family friendly activities to keep them entertained.

1. Easter Holiday Fishing Club for Kids in New Milton

This special 3 hour session during Easter at Orchard Lakes in the New Forest is the perfect introduction to angling. Your youngster will learn a huge variety of fishing skills such as using rods, how to hook bait, casting, fish identification, fish care and handling. They'll be taught within a friendly group (a great way to get to know new people!) of up to 10 and will develop their existing skills, or, if they have never fished before, gain new ones.

2. Pedal & Puzzle - An Outdoor Escape Room Adventure

Take on our challenge to escape to adventure and crack the fiendish puzzle. Whizz around the New Forest coast taking in the stunning scenery and shoreline whilst tackling our knotty brain teasers and challenges along the way. Will you crack the code and find the key?

3. Pop Party in a Recording Studio

This two-hour session will make them feel like a pop star for the day in a state-of-the-art recording studio. They'll have fun recording their song to a backing track which is then professionally mixed and a recording sent to you, to download and enjoy at home!

4. Parent and Child Photography workshop - Beginners' Workshop

Our focus is simple yet effective: compose, focus, and click. These essential skills not only improve their photography but also help young minds in our fast-paced world to develop concentration and composure. The workshops are taught by skilled professionals, ensuring that your kids not only learn photography tricks to make their creative work stand out but also grow in confidence and character alongside other young photographers.

6. Children's Ceramic & Pottery Party

We can host the party from a venue of your choice or from your home. We bring all of your chosen ceramics, paints, stencils and paint brushes and we do all of the tidying up after the party. Parties last between 1-2 hours.

Children choose 1 ceramic item to paint (arranged in advance with the parent/guardian) and once completed, we take the ceramics away, glaze and fire them and then deliver them back 2 weeks later in individual gift bags.
