Today we took our older preschoolers to the RSPB, for some fun in the woods.
We were amazed at how big this tree was. Whilst we were looking at the tree we could hear a woodpecker hammering away at another tree.
We made our way down to the den area.
We found a great area to do some den building and added to the den already built. The children worked together, talking about what stick or branch would fit into which hole.
This huge fallen tree was great for climbing and balancing on. The children found a hidey hole and a tunnel under the tree and used the area to act out their game and role play. One child got a stick and drew lots of shapes- circles and squares and then tried to write her name in the pathway.
We walked back to the lodge to have some snack and wait for the parents. Whilst we waited the children made up a story. Each of the children joined in and liked adding their piece of the story. Once upon a time, there was a lion in the jungle who met a big black elephant. They found a beach and around the beach was a moat. In the moat there was a shark and a dolphin. In the middle of the moat was a man who decided to go fishing with the lion and the elephant. they did some diving and found some treasure of toys and some chocolate coins. Another shark came along and pulled the plug!!! They lost all the water until it rained so that all the fishes that lived in the sea could live. The end.
