MY feet don’t feel like they have touched the ground this week, Iam only NOW finding time to reflect on yesterday’s session …. THE children were amazing in the older temperatures, looking for their MAGIC tree, scrambling, climbing & splashing our way through the site – the session whizzed by WITH the chance for a story, some bucket fun and a hot chocolate BEFORE our toes felt the cold. I think the session time was pretty spot on BUT we will let our fingers & toes dictate when we finish as the weather looks set to get COLDER.
THE last session of 2018! THANK you for coming to find stars, make wishes, Yule spoons, cone garlands and tree dressing. A bit too windy to have our own candles but Iam sure we’ll all light one tonight. MANY thanks to Katie Paton for being our storyteller and for the beautiful Deer Mother tale.
WISHING everyone a lovely Christmas period, however you celebrate and a happy and healthy New Year!
See you in the WOODS 😊🌿🍃🌿

THIS morning whizzed by …. LOTS of NATURE spotting: nests in trees, rabbit, Fox, dog & badger poo hunting, looking st fungi AND then making bird feeders and dens 🌿🍃🌿
We escaped the rain pretty much today AND took the chance with soggy soil to go track hunting poking for prints & pop and then making some tracks of own our, playing in hammocks, with mud, making dens, picnics, woody craft and enjoying the smells and sounds of a fire.
The bog baby, bow saws and REAL babies at our mighty Friday Foxes this morning 🦊 … craft & tool possibilities. MY favourite moment was seeing all the children hard at work with their tools on the branch from the wind damaged tree 😊🌿🍃🌿.
