Yesterday the children loved exploring the trees on the site and so we had story-time under the tree canopy. We taught them 3 different types of shelters and then they broke into small groups to make their own. It was great to see the children working in teams, and how naturally they rotated roles between gatherers, leaders and builders.
And then came the water-test! Some of the shelters were waterproof, and some of them less so… Good job we’re not sleeping in them overnight!
