Innerwick Nursery’s Nature Play

WEEK 2 PHOTOS NOW ADDED – see below.

We went to the woodland today for our first Nature Play session of 2014. The children, staff and helpers all had so much fun exploring and investigating within the woodland. We made muddy mess, collected leaves and pine cones for transient art pictures, searched for minibeasts, poured and watched water run across the paths, used the woodland puppets for role play scenarios and built a wonderful den for playing in. After a good session of free play, we all enjoyed a well-earned snack in the den. The wind got up and we enjoyed listening to the tarpaulin sides shake and rattle. We all felt very cosy in our den. The 1.5 hours went by so quickly, we wished we could have stayed out all day. More fun next week though!
