Dads Willow making workshop at Baildon Children's Centre.

Sponge Tree and 5 dads still managed to carry out this workshop, despite the snow. Yes it was cold and we all had to take breaks from tying the willow, as our hands got a little bit cold. But the end results were definitely worth it! We really hope these willow structures root well and grow well, as they will become a fantastic den for children to play in at the children's centre.

We Just love the pussy willows

Children love to pretend these delightful flowers are tiny little creatures. Our children like to create a special home for them and treat them like pets. They are so soft and we love to stroke them in our fingers.

Getting ready for our new GREEN under 5's workshop

Lovely spring green buds collected for the children to take home. If you store the buds in water they will open into leaves or flowers within a week.
All the snowdrops are in full bloom and how gorgeous they are with their tiny little white nodding heads.
Can you spot the small green shoots of the crocus family, waiting to fire out their fabulous colours of yellow and purple?
