The Very Hungry Caterpillar

What a lovely morning we had at Muddy Feet Forest School today! We read The Very Hungry Caterpillar, went on a story walk, made our own bugs from natural material, did some caterpillar printing, helped the caterpillar climb the tree and explored the dens and hammock! What a perfect way to spend the morning!

Jack and the Beanstalk

Another lovely morning at Muddy Feet Forest School this morning. We read Jack and the Beanstalk and then went off to explore the woods, making houses for Jack, planting beans, chopping up mini beanstalks, using a pulley to carry things high into the sky and lots more outdoor fun!

Easter Session

We had a lovely Easter session on 16th April…we went on an Easter Egg hunt through the woodland! When we found our eggs we decorated them so we knew which was ours, then had an egg rolling competition at the end! (which is somewhat challenging with under 5’s, many of whom cannot differentiate between rolling and launching at a great height!!) But lots of fun was had!

We also built a huge nest for our giant eggs, which we concluded must have been laid by a dinosaur! We then made our own mini nests using twigs, grass and moss and then magically, when our backs were turned, a chocolate egg appeared!!

To mark the arrival of Spring we planted our own sunflower seeds to take home with us.

Some of our older children enjoyed taking part in an egg box scavenger hunt, trying to find different natural items to match different colours.

Some huge dens were built.

Hammocks were swung in

And of course the mud kitchen saw some action too!
