We went to a local wood and tasked the children with creating something out of nature - they came up with some beautiful works.
DD6 & DD4 joined a team to make a living den
it even had its own fireplace
DD8 made a dragon and a flower
another team made a larger dragon
and a ladder/den
and a lovely pattern
I seem to have lost the photo of the hedgehog (old tree stump stuck full of upright twigs)
It was a wonderful day and created great opportunities to explore nature and marvel at all the different coloured barks and plants we found.
