Making a Green Man

We worked together, using soil and water to make a sticky mud mixture.  Then we made it into a 'patty' and stuck it on a tree, before decorating it with natural materials to make a Green Man (or Green Cat or Dog!)


Traditionally, a Green Man was part of the celebration of May Day.  People thought he helped bring forth new growth.

We used team working skills to move water from one end of the line to the other

We used sticks and wool to make spiders' webs

As it was our last session before Christmas we had a treat - yum yum!

Today we made some dens, and toasted 'marshmallows'

We looked for things that 'didn't belong' in nature

We learnt how to tie some knots!
