Forest School Leader, Ruth Hill, has come up with 5 Outdoor Activities to keep children happy and busy in the fresh air. You may need a grown up to help you for some of these activities. Follow the links for each activity:
1. Make a Bird Feeder
You need bird seed, pine cone, lard and string. This is easy to do and the birds will love it.
2. Make a Bow and Arrow
Have fun with your own bow and arrow. You just need willow and string - and then your own imagination!
3. Spiders Web
Make a web with sticks, string and pipe cleaners. You could also use this method to make a Dream Catcher.
4. Make a Stick Man
Make a man/lady with a stick, clay googly eyes and clothes. You could make a whole family - and maybe do a puppet show.
5. Leaf Bashing
Or ‘hammazone’ as it’s sometimes called, is a great activity and you will create a lovely print.
Why not sure photos of your creations on the Fruits of the Forest facebook page!
