Whether you are a parent, a teacher, a Forest School leader or anyone else looking after children, this invaluable guide to nature-based play is full of ideas to get kids outdoors, learning about and connecting with nature, developing new skills and having fun. These new Forest School crafts, games and survival activities are all themed around the elements of earth, air, fire and water, with an underlying message of sustainability and wonder at the amazing web of life.
- Earth: make a mud slide, try Bogolan mud painting on cloth, and hurl mud missiles at a moving target
- Air: make a bullroarer or a whistle, build a kite and fly it, and predict the weather by reading the clouds
- Fire: dig a Dakota fire pit, make a bug-repellent torch and learn how to navigate using a shadow stick
- Water: mix natural dyes, build and test a rainproof den, and drink foraged birch twig tea from a crafted log cup
There are also four magical stories to tell the children - one for each of the elements - guaranteed to spark their imagination.
