And breathe! We’ve just come to the end of a very busy half-term. For once, I was organised and booked a few activities in for Madame. She’s been to the local farm, play dates with friends, Play in the Parks Scheme, Spooky Animal Magic and Trick or Treating. We almost need a break from our break.
However, the highlight for her by far was Forest School in St Albans. I don’t know if it’s the Canadian in me but when I saw it advertised at school, I knew she had to go as I’m always on a quest to get her outside more. It was held in a small Wood on the school property and runs rain or shine, so pop some wellies on and wrap up warm.
She came home beside herself with excitement. They climbed trees, dug trenches for daffodils, carved wood medals using a peeler, made toast on the fire, drank hot chocolate and played on a make shift swing. She also mentioned a Fire band for her hair but I’d rather not think about that one.
My only regret was not signing her up for the full 3 days, but we will definitely next time.
