Our first Family fun afternoon in Pennyquick park today and the rain stayed away! We started the afternoon with some hazel coppicing and then made some hazel pencils with the help of Matt from the Avon Wild life Trust. We also made some wooden name badges and afterwards some of the boys helped to set up a ban marie to melt pieces of chocolate for our banana chocolate snacks - yum! Later in the afternoon Sophie set up a craft area and we made lots of great paper crowns.
One boy commented that it was great participation and when I asked him what that meant he said:
How I see it is its about having fun, helping people have fun and being a part of whats fun and to try not to spoil it for anyone else
