Wild Woods Day with BBOWT

It seems such a long time since we went to a bushcraft session and even longer still since we attended a forest school experience. So when I heard that BBOWT were holding a day event entitled Wild Wood Day over the weekend I thought we'd stop by.

Now that our youngest can walk I think she's at an ideal age in which to explore much more. The uneven woodland floor was a bit of a challenge for her and she kept on wobbling over. However, undeterred she picked herself up, dusted herself down and set off again across the ground. She tried out the man made musical instruments with her whole body instead of using the hammer provided and she gathered sticks from the woodland floor.

Her big sister soon had the hang of making music with the hammers and sticks provided. Though her favourite activity and one she made a bee line for straight away was the ball and stick game. She watched the other little ones around her and got stuck in trying to copy them.

 As you can see from the images I think the girls thoroughly enjoyed the event. The Wildlife Trusts put on a variety of events throughout the year to bring nature and people together. 

Have you been to an event run by The Wildlife Trust before?

  1. I love seeing children enjoying the great outdoors rather than sitting in front of a screen of one sort or another #familyfun@_karendennis

  2. Is that a slow worm she's holding? They are great to hold, and slightly surprising, I think. I hope she liked it. I do love the outdoor musical instruments, which are springing up. Wonderful addition. Smiling at your youngest using her whole body. Why not! #MMBC

    1. I forget whether it was a grass snake or slow worm. It surprised me that unlike snakes that are dry to the touch it was not.

  6. Kids naturally love being outdoors so it's always wonderful to see parents taking their little ones out to explore the natural world around them. This looks like a great event to take our kids to! #mg

  18. They're certainly a great age to start them off with nature. I used to be part of the old Watch nature group round here that BBOWT used to run #counttrykids

  20. Ahh I keep on meaning to try and do a day out like this but I keep thinking that Bens feet are too small for wellies so I'm wanting to wait until then as otherwise he has only one pair of shoes that will get ruined!!!
    Thank you for sharing this with us at #TriumphantTales. I hope to see you back tomorrow.

  21. Looks like it was a fab event and your girls look like they were having a lot of fun. I love how your youngest is walking now and able to explore a little more (although it brings challenges too!) She looks so happy with her sticks :-) #countrykids
