The fun to be had....?
From fire lighting, whittling and sawing to den building, exploring and playing, our survival craft afternoon will be packed full of activities and opportunities to learn different survival skills and have lots of fun too. From making a bow and arrow or creating a den, learning to lash sticks together, sawing or drilling to make unique and natural crafts and creations. To mastering fire lighting and toasting marshmallows over the fire to make s'mores, there is so much to choose to do. Children will have the opportunity to participate in some or all the activities and also have time to explore, chill in the hammock, enjoy some time on the swing and play.
There will be hot chocolate and squash, biscuits and marshmallows as a snack throughout the afternoon.
