Our second Forest School session was well attended again today! Word is getting round and people are coming form outside of the village to come and play in our AWESOME space!
The sessions start off with a campfire and cooking stick bread! Perfect mid morning snack and the children take the job of cooking it very seriously. No messing near the fire!
They are all becoming little pro's at cooking stick bread!
Our Forest School leader walked us around the site, marking our boundaries with coloured wool and reiterating the rules we had set last week. The children also hung wool on prickly plants and trees to remind them that they need to take care near them.
We the enjoyed a crafting activity. Making beads from Elder. We cut Elder branches in to short lengths and the children used sticks to push the pulpy middle out. They then threaded them on to coloured wool to make jewelry and pendents!
Many of us stay after the session for a picnic on site and the children continue to enjoy the Learning Center and playing with their friends!
