Sample Lessons from the Family Outdoor Activities Online Course
Fairy Cakes in a Biscuit Tin Using a Fire Bowl
In this video we will show you how to bake cakes on a fire. This can be done with a Dutch Oven but if you don't have one we'll show you how to do it with a metal biscuit tin instead!
Leaf Bashing & Natural Paints
This video looks at some simple ideas that we can use to make natural paints and crafts. Depending on the season and the research you might like to do, it’s incredible how much colour can come from the natural world, from near and afar!
Using Fire Steels
Whilst matches or lighters can be very useful, children love the challenge of lighting a fire with a fire steel. The Making a Fire course covers all aspects of fire making from the gathering of the wood to leaving no trace and different options of ideas for fire steels.
Get The Whole Family Outdoors
Most adults and children are spending too much of their lives in front of screens. Our online course is packed of nature-based, educational activities to get your whole family outdoors.
Investing time with your children or teenagers is priceless and hugely beneficially for physical, social, psychological and mental wellbeing. These activities will keep you all entertained at your own level of ability and interest. They will offer something for everyone.
Finding activities that we can all do together can be difficult. Forest School themed skills and games are the solution!
