Den Building

Maples had a great start to today’s session. They repeated the Stickman circle game, this time leading the game themselves. They were then set a challenge- to work together to create dens with sticks, logs, tarpaulins, ropes…and anything else they managed to find in the forest! They learnt how to safely move long sticks by holding one end and dragging them on the ground, and had to make sure that they were aware of their friends when balancing the sticks on the dens so that no-one was poked with them!

Maples had a huge amount of fun making and then playing in their dens. They invented all sorts of adventures, from welly-eating monsters that came knocking on a den entrance, to creating a warm bed to lay (and tell funny stories!) in.
