This morning a number of families joined us for a forage around the reserve in search of natural materials worthy of decorating a willow wreath. There was plenty to choose from! After gathering seed heads, ivy, bracken, rush and sedge amongst other delights to go with the pine, holly and larch Emily and I had cut during the week from slightly further away, we headed back to the Education Centre to weave simple wreaths from willow.
It was then time for the fun bit, poking in, wiring on and tying on the greenery and other finds we had collected to create our very different and very individual masterpieces!
Here are some of our amazing creations:
A fun time and creative time was had by all!
