The fun to be had....?
Do you need to find some time to do the dreaded Christmas shopping?...Yes?...Then why not drop your child/children off at our "All things Christmas" themed forest school day. While you are tackling the shops, your child will be having a fab time at our Reindeer, Snowmen and Santa's creating workshop, learning how to safely use hand tools and sourcing their own natural materials to make their very own Rudolph Reindeer to adorn your front garden, or maybe they will choose to make a wooden snowman or Santa, or both, the choice is theirs. There will be time spent making our camp fire, fire lighting and learning some cooking skills to create a snack for the group to share. Time also spent enjoying some hot chocolate and marshmallows around the camp fire whilst chatting to new friends, plus nor forgeting some free time exploring, creating dens and playing games.
