The World Forum Foundation event encourages children all over the world to get outdoors and learn about nature, and the kids at Butterfield House didn’t need a second invitation to get stuck in.

Having celebrated Father’s Day in style in June, this one was strictly for the kids, as the Puddleducks crew revelled in their muddy surroundings.

Activities on offer at the Baldock nursery included painting with mud, making muddy footprints, planting seeds and even adding dinosaurs into the equation with a prehistoric mud-pit.
