The Artful Frog Saturday morning art classes

Did you know that one of your hosts at Willowbrook is an experienced art therapist? On Saturday mornings, all the skills she has learned in that space are put to use in a light hearted way when children of our guests join some of the local children from the area for an art and craft class. The class costs €10 per child (€5 for guests) and is suitable for children aged from 4 – 12. Each week children are guided through the process of making a different piece of art which they can take home with them as a momento of their time at Willowbrook. No experience is necessary and all materials are provided. Bookings are essential and please note that the class takes a break for a week from time to time so please call ahead to confirm dates before making any promises of art classes to little ones! (Call us on 09498 61307 to confirm dates and book a place for your child / children)

Orienteering (kind of)

For the older ones, or those who fancy a bit more of a challenge, we have developed an orienteering course with a difference! We have a number of hidden codes, planted in areas so discrete that only those with their eyes peeled and their map scanned would ever notice them. And when you find all the codes and put them together, what does it mean? Can you figure it all out? We have an easy and a difficult course – some help from an adult may be needed.

The Wishing Wall of Willow

Make a wish, whisper it to your little bit of ribbon, weave it into the living willow wall or tie it to the willow for the wind to take your intention to the world. (This one’s for Mammy & Daddy too)
