FOREST SCHOOL COOK OUT AND POT MAKING!

Forest school session this week was all about outdoor cooking with some clay pot making on the side.
We made vegetable soup, pancakes and stick bread. It was all so tasty!





Little ones helped with the washing up of the bowls and spoons. They did a great job!


Pancakes for dessert!



The clay crafts went down so well last week that we did more this week. We made bowls and decorated them with wool and natural items.


Little "E" really enjoyed squashing the clay between her fingers and changing the shape of it.The more she worked it the warmer it became and the easier it was to mold.


NEXT STEPS: 
    • This was a great follow on to the pasta salad making last week. The children are really enjoying cooking their own meals. Use the fire bowls at home to cook bacon.

    2. Nothing quite like cooking over an open fire. We have a tripod setup and Dutch Oven too and love taking it away on longer camps. The clay pot making activity looks great too. Thanks for joining us on #adventurecalling . I hope you can again when it opens tomorrow morning.

      1. Thank you. We had our last session of the year today and I am sad already. It won't stop me cooking outside though. Any good recipes you would recomend?

    3. I love cooking outside, everything always tastes so much better and it seems like such an adventure. Love the photo of the children getting involved with the washing up. Such great ideas, I'm going to try and incorporate some of them when we next go camping. Thanks so much for sharing with us at #AdventureCalling

      1. Thanks for having us on your linkie. Another great cook is roast chicken buried under the fire pit and left to cook. Tastes amazing!
