On the walk the group spotted a variety of meadow flowers and grasses including clover and buttercups. They all played a game and then settled down to create some designs for a forest school necklace / medallion. The group discussed their favourite animals and based their designs on this. They talked about which animals were native to the UK and where other animals lived. Some of the group chose insects and others chose mammals.
We lit a fire and toasted marshmallows and followed this with a tasty hot chocolate using water from the 'storm / Kelly Kettle'.
The group took turns to bow saw a medallion piece of wood and used a hand drill to make the hole for wool or twine. They drew their designs onto their wood and voilà - a forest school necklace / medallion.
Gary the goat joined us for some of the session, eating leaves and being comical.
