Look Mum, fire and no matches!

We had a great day romping around the nature reserve today. We had an enthusiastic gaggle of kids, most of whom mastered the art of lighting a fire in a fire bowl using a fire striker. This takes determination and a bit of patience. Sometimes it takes me a few minutes to get it right! So it was great that most of the kids got there in the end. We cooked our lunch on the campfire, made some Elder bead necklaces and generally got a bit muddy and scruffy. Our home made bread was even flavoured with wild garlic leaves picked on site.

Proper fresh air fun!
