Rediscover nature with the help of a special houseguest
A Hoebble [pronounced hobble] is a guardian of the natural world. Whilst they are rarely spotted, these tiny creatures leave special markers so you can tell one is near: a pile of stones or their collected supplies of old spoons, leaves, and crumbs.
Hoebbles live quietly in nature, in a patch of grass, a park or deep in a forest. But sometimes they venture into our homes in search of supplies for their important work, giving nature a guiding hand. They’ll need your help to gather what they need, and be returned to their natural habitat.
Go on an imaginative adventure with your child: welcome a magical creature into your home and experience the outdoors in a new way.
The Wild Visitor is a free project for children aged 3-11 years old and their parents or carers to do together. It will be led by you in your home, and can involve a journey outdoors, if possible.
To find out if you have a Hoebble in your home, and how to help them, sign up to our mailing list and we’ll send you an email with instructions in return. You’ll be able to access a special project website including how-to videos and instructions.
This experience is available free of charge. If you are interested in other free creative experiences for children at home, take a look at Our Home Story.
We developed this project in response to COVID-19, for children and their parents or carers to enjoy together.
Punchdrunk Enrichment is a charity and we rely on the support of generous individuals to make life changing theatre. For everyone. In schools, for children and teachers, for families, adults and communities, all our projects have a powerful impact with inclusivity and diversity at their heart.
