Hello and Happy New Year to you all!
We have said goodbye to 2017 and welcomed in 2018 and it has certainly been a busy month this January doing site maintenance and planning for the year.
As we are open 11 months of the year February to December, each year in January the Woodland Beasties Team take a little break, then we sit down and plan lots of exciting events and activities that we think you and your little ones will really enjoy and look forward to take part in. We then go to our site and plan what new additions would be really cool to add, with an emphasis on reusing, recycling, reducing any waste. We have had some fantastic donations of old sinks, apple crates, wash hand basins and much more that we can have on site. #reuse #reduce #recycle
This year we want to create a sensory garden, so the children can help us plant, take care and water the garden. We really want to children to be very much involved so they will be helping us plant some herbs such as Lavender, Rosemary, Sage, Oregano. Then later in the year planting colourful flowers such as primroses, poppies and wild meadow seeds. We are looking forward to sparking a potential interest in any budding green fingers or horticulturalist out there as well as using the herbs in any cooking on our campfire.
We are also in the process of adding a music area with keyboards, drum kit and xylophone! Perhaps we could have our own Woodland Beasties band?! Looking forward to hearing music in the woods.
January is also time for us to update on our qualifications so Sarah and I have refreshed our Outdoor First Aid on a very snowy two days in Telford. We are hoping not to ever put it to use but rest assured that you are in safe hands should you need us.
We are very excited about reopening again in February and can’t wait to show you all what we’ve been up to and looking forward to seeing you all again!
Thanks for stopping by,
The Woodland Beasties Team
