Enchanted Wood

If you go down in the enchanted woods today you’re sure of a big surprise!

Foxes and badgers, voles and mice, beady-eyed owls in the swaying tree tops. Beneath the leaves are tiny footprints…animal or imp? You decide!

Deciduous or evergreen? What can you find? Can you match a leaf to the tree? Can you match a petal to the flower?

Let’s build a den, stick by stick and branch by branch. Or we could make a teeny tiny home for a woodland fairy!

Then let’s party down in the woods, with Mr Fox and all his woodland friends. We’d better not get lost….let’s leave a trail of stones like Hansel and Gretel!
