A marvellous first day at our forest school summer holiday club.

Day one of…Den in the Woods and what an adventure we had šŸ™‚

We made dens, played games, did lots of crafts using wool, sticks, clay and paracord. Went on a lost city adventure walk, looked at minibeasts, counted butterflies. Read stories, rescued soft woodland toy animals, sheltered from a thunder storm, toasted marshmallows and used some tools to whittle and make mallets. šŸ™‚
Looking forward to more adventures tomorrow. We still have some places, you can book through our website, email or give us a call Mark 07504675551 or Sally 07954160118.
