Willow weaving, shelter building and art 

Last week I harvested some willow and the children made crowns, dream catchers (excellent fine motor skill practice) and headdresses. I provided the willow and wool; they chose how to use it.

The year 1’s learnt a couple of simple knots and put up shelters with tarps and rope. Great team work, communication and problem solving.


Others chose to make some creative art installations. A lovely week.

And of course, we made our own snack – stick bread!
