Fire Making

We are continuing along our woodland journey and enjoying every minute. The children have now thoroughly explored the area discovering new flora and fauna, building dens and creating a rather mucky mud slide!

Today (Tuesday) we learned how to make fire using steel fire lighting flints. Some fires started easily and others took many, many attempts! Lily deserves an award for perseverence as she was still strinking sparks and trying to make fire long after everyone else had given up. She managed it in the end, however, and we all gave her a well-deserved clap.

A yummy marshmallow treat awaited us when we had succesfully created a small fire. Delicious!
