Rating
The ultimate guide to family woodland fun!Forest School is founded on a philosophy of nature-based play encouraging children to develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a natural environment. This book will get your children outside, making and building for real (instead of on a computer screen!). Whether your local woodland is a forest or a strip of trees along the edge of an urban park, these activities provide fantastic opportunities for family time and will encourage your children to fall in love with outdoor play again. This is the first book to share Forest School games, crafts and skill-building activities with families, its magical illustrations and simple instructions drawing children easily into a world of wonder. * Be a fox tracking its prey, a moth evading a bat, a rabbit fleeing a forest fire!* Make a working bow and arrow, spectacular headdresses, beautiful woodland jewellery, magic wands - all with materials gathered from the forest floor.* Learn wilderness survival skills: build a shelter, make fire, forage and cook wild food.
