Free activities for kids this summer at Dobbies’ Milton Keynes store

    Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre, is unveiling an array of nature inspired activities at its Milton Keynes store for children throughout summer, free for families to attend.

    The first Dobbies’ Little Seedlings Club session of the summer takes place on Sunday 7 July and will spotlight minibeasts that live in the garden. The club is designed to educate and inspire the next generation of gardeners, getting children of all ages (4-10 years old) together in a group setting to learn something new.

    The Garden Creatures workshop at Dobbies’ MK will explore the world of snails, slugs, spiders, and beetles, helping children understand their microhabitats and fascinating defence mechanisms. The kids will also gain an understanding of what a pollinator is and how you can attract them to your garden with pollinator-friendly lavender, which they can plant and take home.

    In addition to the regular monthly workshop, Dobbies’ MK is hosting a Little Seedlings Holiday Club on various dates across August to keep kids active and busy over the school holidays.

    Children will learn about beautiful butterflies and get the chance to make their very own butterfly-inspired craft, whilst also learning about them, their lifestyle, and their lifecycle.

    Robbie Williams, General Manager at Dobbies said, “We know just how stretched families can be over the summer holidays, trying to find new and affordable ways to keep the kids entertained. The free sessions in our Milton Keynes store are designed to be inclusive, fun and educational, and we hope that families across the country can head along to their nearest store to get involved.”

    The Milton Keynes store will be hosting the club from Monday 12 to Friday 16 August. 

    Dobbies is currently searching for its new Little Seedling Club Ambassadors. The application process is simple; interested applicants only need to visit and fill out a short form, applications close on Sunday 23 June.
