One of the reasons that I haven’t been blogging as often this year is because I am busy training to be a Forest School Leader. I am loving the process and the whole concept of Forest School. I have always felt very at home in the woods and am loving introducing other people to this gentle way of interacting with each other and the natural world and seeing people appreciating the wonders of our natural environment.
Yesterday I ran my first ever Forest School taster session. It was so much fun! Ten families enjoyed a morning in the woods, making nature crowns, reading The Gruffolo, making dens for woodland creatures and Gruffolo caves for themselves. We rounded off the morning with hot drinks made on the Kelly Kettles and a picnic in the dappled shade of the hazel trees. I will be taking bookings soon for my regular Forest School sessions which start in September. I am loving my career path right now!
