Central Somerset Outdoor Learning Partnership

CSOLP has recently worked in partnership with the local Forest Education Initiative Cluster group to deliver a woodland toys project aimed at teenagers and pre-school children.

During the project, the teenagers designed and made simple wooden toys for pre-school children. The young people learnt basic green woodworking skills and pyrographic (writing with fire!) techniques to produce some beautiful and innovative toys.

The teenagers subsequently donated the toys to Yeovil College Children’s Centre and attended a play session at the Drayton site. The young children were obviously delighted with their new toys.
