Wild Thymes was joined on 14 December 2019 by lots of lovely families who are members of Cornwall Wildlife Trust as part of CWT’s Wildlife Watch programme of events. We made apple bird feeders using sunflower seeds and satsuma pomanders using cloves as well as making christmas decorations using natural materials. The campfire popcorn and hot chocolate warmed us all up as we sat round the campfire and roasted our marshmallows.
Children are free to choose what they want to do at Forest School. They may want to use the tools or learn a new craft, help get the fire going or play on the swing. What ever is on offer there’s usually at least one den being made!
Here are a few, some all natural, using branches and leaves, other times when it’s raining opting for tarpaulins and rope.
