in Nature

Little Wild Things runs outdoor sessions for children and their grown-ups in a patch of Oxfordshire woodland.

We explore nature, try new things, tell stories, encourage imaginative play and get good and muddy.

Children who spend more time outdoors are happier and healthier. They learn to understand, love and be inspired by nature. That’s good for them, good for communities and good for the natural environment.

So why not come out to play!

Up and coming adventures...

Thanks so much to everyone who braved the mud to come and see us over the Easter break – you were all excellent treasure hunters! Our late spring term of adventures are now fully booked but it is always worth adding yourself to the waiting list. The next holidays and summer term will be open for booking soon – keep an eye out here or sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear.

What We Do

Little Wild Things wants to inspire people to spend more time outdoors. We run 6 days a week, almost all year round. We work with schools, pre-schools and hundreds of local families.

About The Woods

We work from a beautiful patch of mature mixed woodland on the Cornbury estate, just outside Charlbury in West Oxfordshire.

Our Adventures

Our sessions are all about having fun in the outdoors, exploring the natural world and being hands on. We believe in simple ideas and the importance of spending time playing together.
