On Wednesday we went for a walk in the woods with our Home Education group. We hadn’t gone far when the children discovered two dens which had been partly built and started to add to them.
Monkey and Rabbit were especially keen on this and carried on for some time while the others were exploring the woods and collecting bugs. We also spotted some interesting fungi.
After a while we moved on a little further, to a tree which the children love to climb because someone has helpfully built a platform with a den underneath. This kept them busy for so long that, after a quick snack, it was time to leave. It made for a rather short walk but they had a great time playing with their friends. I think we will have to find some creative ways to get them wanting to explore further next time, or we will never get past the tree house again!
