Bows and Arrows!

Our February session at Cody Dock was wonderful!

The sun was shining, the temperature was mild and parents/guardians and children enjoyed the activities: painting the targets on ply wood, going for a walk to gather materials for the headdresses and arrows, making the bows and arrows and then testing the bows, dancing, playing games and making some lovely bananas and melted chocolate on the fire. We had little time to tidy up our vegetable patch, but we’ll dedicate more time to it when we’re next there, in March.

Autumn Candles

On the 11th of October we met at Cody Dock for our regular session. The session was lively with lots of people joining in right from the start. The children and parents/carers started with an embroidery activity using needles, jute and wool. The challenge was to make a bag/case. We also made lots of candles in different shapes, we used everything, even the smallest bit!

We also made some waffles, we attempted to make some lovely looking waffles with an Italian waffle maker, however we had lots of children waiting anxiously for their waffles so we decided to conventional pancakes on the pan as well. It worked out alright in the end thanks to the parents and children who helped make this session a success.
