Autumn bulb planting and Christmas Tree decorations

Well it’s that time of the year to start thinking about planting bulbs now for the Springtime. We had some lovely sessions planting Daffodils, Tulips and Crocuses with our homemade paper plant pots. So great to see all the little beasties getting their hands dirty and gently placing the bulbs in the paper pots.

As we are coming close to the festive season, we made some pretty cool Christmas Tree decorations from wool and lots of different shaped buttons. They are going to going beautiful on our trees!


Hot off the press…we were in the paper! The Uttoxeter Advertiser. We are very excited that we have had a piece written about Woodland Beasties, letting the readers know of all our brilliant forest school sessions that we run weekly.


Keep warm and thanks for stopping by,

Hallowe’en, Fireworks and World Nursery Rhyme Week

We have had a great few weeks here at Woodland Beasties with our Hallowe’en event, bonfire night and world nursery rhyme week!

The weather has also been very kind to us and has been so mild up to now, giving us and the little beasties time to get outside and play in the beautiful coloured leaves. Thank you to everyone who came along to our first Hallowe’en event it was great fun and we’ll certainly be holding one every year now!


We have been singing lots of lovely nursery rhymes this week to mark world nursery week. We made a boat with a sail, hopped in and sailed off into the sunset whilst singing Row, Row, Row Your Boat! We made cute little spiders and sang Little Miss Muffet and then had a small rest and lid down for Sleepy Bunnies.

Next week we are getting ready for Spring and planting bulbs now, ready to watch them grow. Be sure to come on down and join us on Tuesday, Thursday or Friday!
