New venture for Wild Fife Babies and Bairns – Birthday Parties!
Today Wild Fife Babies & Bairns did their first Birthday Party! It was a long term plan for us for 2022, but the opportunity arose and we were so excited to do it!
The beautiful Meena turned 5 and we provided face painting and bug hunting. Hollie painted A LOT of butterflies and foxes!
If you are thinking about your little one’s Birthday Party in the new year and want to do something outdoors and nature themed, give us a shout! Parties will be aimed at 1-5 year olds.
Tuesday 9th November – Tree Planting
Today Wild Fife Babies & Bairns contributed towards the “Meadows in the Making” project, with the University of St Andrews, Fife Council, Fife Coast & Countryside Trust and St Andrews Botanic Garden. We planted 28 of their 600 trees, to the west of the University Saints Sports Centre.
Thank you so much to everyone that came along. A great effort from both big and little folks

The sun came out at Silverburn Park for our lovely Acorns today! It was so nice to see you all and a few new faces We fed the birds and talked about how to get little ones into birding, we also looked for bugs, both big and small and used our ID cards to help identify them. We made the most of the sun and sat in a lovely sunny patch on the grass and played with our wriggly worms (pink pipe-cleaners stuck in a colander) and rainbow scarves, listened to some bug themed stories and sang some bug and movement themed songs. We then moved onto the pond and dipped for water boatmen, leeches, hog lice etc and used our ID cards again.
Thank you so much to everyone that made it out today and can’t wait to see you all again!

It was a Bird, Bug and Water Beastie adventure this morning with the wonderful Fox Cubs at the beautiful Silverburn Park. We started off feeding the birds, then we took our magnifying pots and went looking for bugs – both big (hidden giant plastic bugs) and tiny – under logs and in the leaves and plants. Next up we moved onto the pond, where we used our ID guides to help identify the wee pond beasties, which included leeches, pond snails and water boatmen. While we were walking around the park we were collecting leaves and twigs, as I gave our Fox Cubs some homework – to make nature bugs and birds (check them out in the photos).
Thank you to everyone that shared their photos and videos and thanks so much to everyone that came along today, it was so much fun!

What can I say about our Soultime Sessions with Leigh – it was simply wonderful. I am so grateful to Leigh and Little Bugs Nursery. The rain may have changed some of the plans, but I think it certainly added to the sound experience. After the sound session we discussed mindfulness and practiced some breathing techniques and how to bond with your little one in a mindful way.
Thank you to everyone that made it out in the rain. I’m looking forward to hopefully seeing you all again at another session – Hollie
Thank you Soultime Sessions for the lovely message about Saturday’s special event. We had a lovely time!

Happy Father’s Day to all our Wild Fife Babies and Bairns fathers and father figures. We know today can be challenging for some due to loss or separation or other reasons. We want to celebrate all fathers and father figures – some fathers in your life may not be biologically related, but still play an important role. Love to you all!
