SELF ORGANISED WEDNESDAY FAMILY GROUP AT YELLOWCRAIGS





 

 
 We met for the first of six sessions with families at yellowcraigs.
We looked for materials for making a picture and then we had fun at the different stations we had in the woods.
 




We had fun playing with mud and lots of water and liked pouring water from different pots to bowls.


 

We also liked the self made swing we managed to put up.


TASTER SESSION FOR HOMESCHOOLERS AT YELLOWCRAIGS

For our taster session to find out if this group would like to come back for a six week block we painted with bramble juice and clay, made a fire, whittled with carrots and wood, made boats out of driftwood using a hand drill and did some Happa Zoming.



Some of us liked playing in the woods and climbing trees.



 Some of us liked to learn how to whittle and we listened to instructions really carefully.

 


 


We liked the hand drill and we liked using the charcoal from our fire to paint our boats.


 

YELLOWCRAIG FOREST CLUB SEPTEMBER

 Today we made different kinds of shelter using some more tools. We also tried using knifes and potato peelers for people who were new today.







 We learnt new rules about fires and how to be safe around them. We learnt about different kinds of heat and about charcoal. We then used the charcoal for drawing with.

Our next meet up is October the 5th 10-12.
