Once upon a Christmas sprout

Christmas sprout

A Christmas sprout hunt is being organised for families with pre-school children in Torfaen.

Naughty elves from the council’s Early Years team have hidden knitted sprouts at all Integrated Children’s Centres and in local parks where their Little Explorer sessions take place.

Children can start looking for the sprouts when attending sessions at the Integrated Children’s Centre from the 2 December up until the 17December.

Families with little ones who are not already attending Early Years sessions can take part by finding the Christmas sprouts in either Blaenavon, Cwmbran or Pontypool park.

Children can keep the sprouts they find and parents are asked to share photographs on the team’s Flying Start Torfaen Facebook page, or by using the hashtag #welovesproutsTorfaen.

Families can get into the Christmas spirit by watching our ‘Once upon a Christmas Sprout’ story here.

Torfaen Early Years Manager, Charlotte Dickens, said:

“The sprout hunt has been organised this year because the team has been unable to arrange their usual Christmas workshops due to the ongoing pandemic.   This term we have restarted our face to face groups and we look forward to seeing even more Torfaen families next term.”

The Early Years team support families in Torfaen from pregnancy until children start school at the age of 4.

Little Explorers is just one of the group sessions the Early Years team deliver.  This group runs weekly at Blaenavon, Cwmbran and Pontypool Park and is an opportunity for families and their little ones to have fun, exploring nature and the outdoors.
