Muddy Boots ‘Wild wood’

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!

Here are ten photos from the day. IMG_7174 IMG_7170 IMG_7179 IMG_7224 IMG_7222 IMG_7238 IMG_7223 IMG_7211 IMG_7196 IMG_7185

    • If you look on the sixth photo you will see a Kelly Kettle in the middle of the shot. They are a self-contained fire/ kettle combo. You can boil water very safely and quickly using just a handful of sticks as fuel. Great way to introduce the use of fire at Forest School
