A Straw house that didn’t blow down…

Today we built a fabulous straw house-perfect for a little pig to shelter in and stromg enough to keep out a wolf!

Once the structure was done, straw was added. Not far away, a team of  mud-makers were busy preparing some special forest ‘cement’…

The mud cement was used to hold together the straw and sticks…we were very pleased with it and thought it worked really well.

We tried to blow the house down…but it was strong enough to stay standing! Well done Rowans!

We also continued making wood cookies using the bow saw…

And we enjoyed lots of other self selected (and often imaginative) activities including taking log dog for a  walk, making music and creating a picnic feast in the wooden playhouse.
