Kids at Sherwood Farm: Activities and Safety

Here at Sherwood Farms we love kids, in fact we have seven of our own! With our farms sprawling landscapes and serene ambiance, it’s not just an eclipse-viewing haven but also a paradise for kids. If you're planning to bring your little ones along, here's a guide to ensure they have a fantastic time while staying safe.

Kid-Friendly Activities:

  • Nature Scavenger Hunt: Equip them with a list of items to find around the farm. From a pinecone to a feather, it's a fun way for them to explore and learn.

  • Stargazing: The nights leading up to the eclipse are perfect for spotting constellations. Teach them about the stars, or better yet, let them teach you with their vivid imaginations!

  • Fishing: With multiple ponds on the property, it's a serene activity they'll love. Just ensure they're supervised.

  • Horseback Riding: Let them enjoy the thrill of horseback riding. In fact, ride as a family and take lots of pictures to remember this unique experience together.

  • Craft Corner: Set up a small area with art supplies. They can paint, draw, or even make their own eclipse-themed crafts.

  • Storytime Under the Stars: Gather around in a circle and share stories. Whether it's about the constellations, folk tales, or family stories, it's a bonding experience.

Safety Precautions:

  • Eclipse Safety: Ensure the kids have proper solar viewing glasses and know the importance of never looking directly at the sun without them.

  • Stay Hydrated: With all the excitement, kids might forget to drink water. Keep a bottle handy and remind them to take sips regularly.

  • First Aid Kit: Always have a basic first aid kit. From minor scrapes to insect bites, it's good to be prepared.

  • Buddy System: If you're in a group, teach kids to always have a buddy with them. It's not just safe but also double the fun.

  • Designated Meeting Point: In case someone gets lost, have a designated meeting point. Make sure every family member knows where it is.

Sherwood Farm is all set to offer a memorable experience for everyone, including the young ones. With a mix of fun activities and safety measures, your family's time here will be filled with joy, learning, and awe-inspiring celestial wonders. So, pack those bags, get the kids excited, and head over for an adventure they'll cherish for a lifetime!
