This afternoon at Forest School Matilda class we greeted by some woodland fairies. They had a challenge for the children to make magical potions. The fairies had supplied some magical ingredients, such as mermaid tears, lizards snot, squashed toads and unicorns blood, however they were hidden around the woods.
When looking for the ingredients we came across some small wooden doors and hidden fairies. The children were very excited to gather ingredients from the woodland floor, which was covered with a beautiful selection of Autumn leaves, sticks, pine cones, berries, moss and grass. They then mixed up their magical potions using a splash of the secret ingredients supplied by the fairies, and used their magical sticks to stir.
After mixing their potions some children decided to make a fairy village using the small wooden doors against the trees, and made pathways, gardens and swimming pools for the fairies to use!
Other children decided to make fires to cook their potions on in the big pans, and dens to sit inside to shelter from the rain.
What a busy and magical afternoon we had at Forest School. I hope you had fun Matilda class!
