This morning we had a fantastic Bush Tucker session in the woods at Rutland Farm Park. Whilst Jo had a superb helper to get a good fire going, the other children explored their surroundings playing ‘capture the flag.’ This included Louise clearing a tunnel through the undergrowth to find one of the flags, however she was not declared the winner!
After enjoying a snack of pancakes, everyone worked together to prepare and cook an amazing lunch of homemade burgers.
Although the morning went really quickly we did squeeze in a quick tools session to whittle some sticks and toast marshmallows on the fire before meeting parents.
The sun came out and gave us a beautiful afternoon for our family session! We practised keeping safe around the fire by kneeling in the respect position to toast marshmallows, created habitats and explored the potion resources to make drinks for the adults!
All of the families enjoyed exploring the woodland with the tree swing becoming a firm favourite for most. We practised fishing on the bridge using buckets and ropes and made flags using the Hapa Zome technique.
They came, they saw, they played. If you went down to the woods today, you’d be sure of a big surprise. Happy families laughing, learning and playing together. Places were explored, trees were swung on, potions were mixed, marshmallows were toasted, trees were climbed, bridges were crossed, buckets were lowered, and creatures were captured (and released).
