As we come to the end of the summer holidays, hopefully this does not signal the end of your trips to the woods. The woods truly are a magical place to spend time all year round, and each season brings new treasures with it. The woods will soon begin to brighten as the canopy loses its leaves and allows sunlight to fall on the woodland floor. streams that may have dried up during the summer months may reappear and fallen leaves provide many opportunities for some serious fun. But all that’s for another post, when autumn has been with us longer and those changes are much more evident.
This week I wanted to introduce you to a little game that we play as we travel through the woods. If you find that your little ones legs are getting tired as you make your way home, introduce this game and have everyone begging for you to make that call just one more time. It’s a firm forest school favourite with all my groups and one I enjoy just as much as they do.
