Description

Our second Wild Life Weekender and the first of 2018! The aim is to come together as families observing, exploring and celebrating the cyclical changes in nature. There will be the opportunity to join in seasonal nature art and crafts, toolwork, bushcraft and camp fire cooking. Held in the lovely rural setting of Great Easton Primary School near Dunmow in the school grounds. There is a pond, woodland, den building area, playground and shelters, a large school field and a kitchen where you can make hot and cold drinks. There are footpaths leading from the school and a pub in the village so why not make a day of it by going for a stroll afterwards and have Sunday lunch !

Families welcome - there are activities for children of all ages. The Forest School Leader will model activities and then parent/carers work with their child/ren on the activity stations.

It's almost Valentines Day and it's National Nestbox Week . Activities include - hammering nails into wood in a heart shape and weaving wool between the nails to finish your art with a heart. Toasting heart shaped marshmallows on the camp fire. Making a bird house by upcycling a carton. Making a home from natural finds for love bugs - they rock ! Creating loveheart leaf confetti. Making a bow and arrow fit for Cupid! Use the fire striker to create a spark between you ! Make a love potion in the mud cafe!
