We went foraging today, looking for anything we could find that could be used as nourishment. The children learnt not to take anything they were unsure of and also the importance of only taking what we need. We found leaves from dandelion, primrose, nettle and rose bay willow herb.
We also cut Lime ready for making spears later in the day. Back at the parachute we cut or tore our foraged leaves and added water and got them on to boil.
After dinner, Maria taught us knife safety and the children all made their own spears. This isn’t as easy as it looks and they did very well.
The day finished with us trying to spear (cardboard) fish. Lots of learning today and lots of fun.
