What was your most memorable outdoor experience? Being Forest School trained means I can offer the unique experience and the right duty of care to ensure your children can make the most of the outdoors. They can get involved with the following activities:
- Building Den’s and Shelters
- Digging and Exploring
- Treasure Hunts
- Bug Hunting and learning about local wildlife and plant species
- How to take care and look after our natural environment
- Map making and Orienteering
- Woodland walks and Hikes
and for the older children:
- Cooking on fires
- Making Fires
- Using saws
- Tie knots and when to use them
…….. as well as playing lots of games, or just having some peaceful time looking up at the sky and just being still; and as this is a child-led approach, then who knows what each day can bring?
Growing food and more
Children can learn and develop here a taste of life in this ‘closer to nature’ approach. They will have opportunities to grow, pick and taste organic foods, learn about the seasons of fruit and veg, and use their imaginations to create their own nutritional meals. We help pick and grow foods at my friends local allotment and community garden, learn how to care for a range of fruits and vegetables, and get a real sense of community spirit.
As well as all the above they will have the opportunity to participate with other activities, such as:
- Stories, poems and rhymes
- Joining other groups
- Puzzles and Games
- Arts and Crafts
- Music and Dance
- Trips to Beach, Woods, Library, Selected Museums, Wildlife parks, Steam Railways, Farms, and much more.
There are also lots of great ideas for things you can do when you get home to continue with the outdoor fun. Please click on the links below:
