Forest club 27th and 28th September

Last week’s sessions focused on hedgehogs preparing for hibernation. The children made model hedgehogs out of pine cones, clay and other natural materials and have begun building snug hedgehog houses for the local wildlife.

Some of the children were also busy collecting conkers, and each child kindly shared all but two of them with the rest of the group, by adding them to our craft resources. With some resources collected on site and some being sourced elsewhere, we are slowly building up a really diverse selection of materials. If you have any materials you feel may be useful for crafts we would be most grateful for donations. Coloured stones, leaves, nuts, logs, offcuts of wood from carpentry projects, wall tiles, slate roofing tiles, fabric…everything is useful.

Experiments in den building have resulted in some stylish constructions and some very imaginative knot-work. We expect to see the structures growing over the next few weeks. Thank you to all of the children who have enjoyed playing in and around the dens, including those who don’t attend the forest club, for being very thoughtful and not damaging the structures.
