One day a week Miss E comes to me for art, craft and gardening as part of her home education, sometimes we have Little Miss M with us as well.
It is an absolute delight for me to be part of the H.E. team, and to see how Miss E’s confidence and interest in the world is developing since she has been at home.
They clamber about on this old tree stump and it becomes all sorts of other things – a pirate ship at sea on this visit.
After gathering pine cones, fallen leaves and ferns they set to work. Miss E always knows just what she wants to do from the start, which can lead to frustration when things don’t work out exactly as she had in mind..
But I try to tell her this is all part of the creative process, and often get her to repeat the mantra “it’s not wrong, it’s just not finished!’
Then off we all went to a nearby café for a hot chocolate.
The photos were sent in and Miss E was SO delighted when her Squirrel appeared on the magazine’s Facebook page.
Do you have any woodland walks near you?
