On our first Wild Monday we found out the different names of the trees in the woods and then used some wood to make some amazing mobiles, necklaces, wands and even a stick man!
Thanks to Happy Tots Pre-School for visiting us today! Those naughty fairies had left us a trail to follow and we helped them out by making their forest beautiful with fairy flags and building them some wonderful houses! From September we will be trying out a pre-school group on Mondays, do get in touch if you would be interested or if you’d like to visit with your group!
We got creative this month with all the treasures the forest has to offer at this time of year. Our crowns, magic wands and pictures were all beautifully decorated!
Did you know that bluebells are also known as fairy bells? Wherever you find these beautiful flowers there are sure to be fairies about! Today the fairies needed our help to scare away the nasty goblins, so we collected magic for our wands, cast spells with potions and built the fairy kingdom. I’m sure the fairies will love it!
Yo ho ho it’s a pirate’s life for us today! We built our own pirate ships complete with planks to walk, decks to scrub and the crow’s nest to look out from. As we sailed across the seas we found treasure, fought with swords and found time for a marshmallow along the way.
This Sunday we hunted for our dinner, built campfires and decorated the forest with our cave paintings!
The birds were singing, the bluebells have popped their green heads up above the soil and the fire was roaring. A great group of merry boys and girls and their grown ups made bows and arrows and used a saw to make wooden badges. We also had some delicious s’mores and popcorn too! We had to use our problem solving skills to find the best arrow sticks to use with our bows… Is it too heavy? Is it the right shape? Once we got the hang of it the arrows were flying! Great work Forest Schoolers.
