Wild and creative!

Wild and creative!

Posted by Kate Traynor

Take your children out to the park have some family fun with nature!

Kate and her children went to Burgess Park and collected leaves to create some lovely art! She also shares some other wild ideas below....please send us yours!

You can also collect some sticks and other natural items and make a beautiful CREATIVE MOBILE for your home, all you need is some string!

Here is one we made from stuff we collected in the park:
If you live near Burgess Park check out the newer woodland area and you might find these awesome dens that we found yesterday!

You can make your own den with sticks or by putting a sheet/blanket over some tree branches! Children will love making a 'camp in the woods' with you!

Remember that you don't need to go out to the countryside to experience your WILD SIDE and just going to your local park can turn into a creative nature adventure!
