forest school...

Last weekend Rufus was invited by his good friend, Wilfred, to celebrate his 5th birthday party.  Wilfred's  party, just like Ru's, was held up in Leigh Woods.  Unlike our crazy Indian adventure, Wilfred's was an organised party - all about woodland survival.
Set in the Forest School clearing - the children made their own tribal jewellery, followed a treasure hunt to find the food, made goblin dens, and had the perfect morning.
Rachel , the leader, gave them each a  potato peeler so they could whittle their own sticks for the fire.I loved watching these small boys bond over sticks and marshmallows.
Woods, 5 year old boys and a fire - what more would they want?

a wild woodland rumpus...

So... today we celebrated my youngest boy's 5th birthday.
A group of his closest friends all gathered in the woods for a wild game of bows, arrows and Indians.
We decorated headresses, painted faces, stormed the tipi's, made bows with sticks and string, ate hot dogs and toasted marshmallows on the fire.
You can see from the photos, Rufus had a wild time... we all did.  Children and parents alike.
It was epic, I feel I have been away for a weekend at a festival - the most fun, exhausting and happy all at the same time.
As I sit here now with the smell of wood smoke in my hair - I feel absolutely blessed that my boys have such great friends and that I do too.
I think all Saturday afternoons should be like this!

The Party

What a party!  Charlie had the best time.  His friends had a blast.  Jelly and squash flooded the table.  Crowns were bejewelled, tshirts were embellished, a parcel was passed.  Chocolate was eaten by the bucket load and Buzz Lightyear blasted down from space on a mission to make the most chocolately space cake ever!


Gorgeous kids - Charlie has some lovely friends.

Now for a lie down.
