Woodland Activities Drayton Woods February Half Term

Woodland Playscheme 8-12yr olds

Despite the atrocious weather 21 children took part in : putting up our new woodland canopy, exploratory games, collecting firewood twig puppet making and toasting cheese sandwiches & marshmallows on the campfire.

A good time was had by all and a beautiful mud pie was created spontaneously in the mud!  Thanks to the wonderful volunteers who braved the weather, kept the fire going and kept the spirits high!

Woodland Challenge 11yrs plus

11 young people took part in this Challenge day;  Luckily the rain stopped and we were able to relax in the woods:identifying trees through blindfold exploration, learning knots needed to build a shelter, Fire lighting techniques with a fire steel & safe use of knives. The young people then went on to build their own shelters, light fires safely and make name sticks using knives. One group created a warrior shield using materials found in the woodland to portray ideas around protection and strength.

The Sausages were enjoyed by all!
