Tree fun for kids in the last week of the summer holidays

mud faces 4Five weeks of summer holidays done and dusted. You can pat yourself on the back for all the imaginative and creative pastimes, which have kept your little ones happy and fulfilled.

There’s only one more week left and if you’ve just about exhausted your ideas list, and your budget, we thought you might appreciate some “eleventh hour” inspiration.

As part of our Seedlings at School program, which has seen us working with thousands of primary school children close to our Bettys branches, we have created a FREE resource pack- containing a selection of 14 different activities to help children to learn about, and enjoy, trees and nature.


Treasure hunts; leaf collages; decorating plant pots; seed collecting and mud faces. There’s something for every age whether you are indoors, in the garden or at your local park.


Here at Bettys we have been busy with plans for Seedlings at School for the new school year, and our charity partner Groundwork has lots of interesting activities, and tree saplings, ready to go. This year, the third year of the project, will also see the project reach its target of planting 10,000 trees. If your children attend a primary school in Harrogate, York, Northallerton or Ilkley then they may have already been involved in planting one of these 10,000 trees.

If not, or if you are a local conservation group then please contact us to find out how you can get involved or receive tree saplings to plant at


Free to download or view, we’d love you to make use of our Seedlings at School resource pack. If it helps to teach your children about the importance of trees whilst making the last week of the holidays just that little bit easier for you, then we couldn’t be happier.
