Throughout the month of October we hosted a big bunch of enthusiastic kids for Marion’s Pilot Forest School Program. This is to complete Marion’s certification as a Forest School Trainer.
Interest in the pilot program was strong and we were full to the brim with kids eager to learn and play in nature. It was a joy for us all who took part to watch the kids open to the process and become more comfortable playing, learning and being in nature. We noticed we had a few adult hangers on too, as the classes slipped by!
The kids learned about all sorts of stuff like:
- shelter building
- fire making
- tree identification
- wildlife watching and tracking
- connecting with plants and trees
- playing and sculpting with mud
- playing with water
- forest playground with low ropes, swings and climbing poles
- blindfolded and animal mimikry games
- camouflage and stalking
The program was such a great success and was enjoyed by all….and not just the kids! Visit our Nature School page for our full program of kids and teens nature schooling in 2016. We kick off in March 2016.
