Fun with Pebbles

SORRY - a couple of customers have pointed out a mistake we made on our newsletter sent out earlier today. To rectify this we would like to say we do not advocate sticking items, especially plastic, to pebbles and leaving them in the environment.

What's hiding near you?:

Have you noticed decorated rocks hidden around the place? What is going on? The craze involves people decorating pebbles and hiding them for others to find - some are amazing works of art, others much more simple. My two young boys noticed some up a tree whilst out on a walk and had lots of fun climbing about and looking for others.
Many different social media groups have been set up where people share their decorating ideas and pebble locations.


Our one stop shop has a diverse selection of practical, educational and inspiring products for all your forest school, outdoor play and learning requirements. These will help with your pebble activities.
