The first Bairns in the Woods session happened at Prestonpans Infant School. Six family groups have started a series of Bushcraft afternoons working together in the outdoors . After sorting wellies and waterproofs, the families erected a huge Teepee which became the base for the afternoon. Then it was down to business designing and building a Teddy shelter , which was tried and tested , before full scale shelters were built. Families worked together, and produced fantastic shelters which were then trialled with drinks and biscuits inside . The afternoon passed all too quickly but the families ( and teddies!) are looking forward to some fire lighting next week.
