Do-It-Yourself Forest School!

In October this year, ROAM teamed up with the Friends of Cotteridge Park on a joint initiative called ‘DIY Forest School’. 

Every week we’ve issued a new activity sheet for children and their adults to use in the park, relevant to the season’s treasures!

Written by ROAM session leader Kaleigh, her passion for using the natural world as inspiration for creativity shines through, as she explains;

“Dive into nature’s tool box and unleash your creativity outside! Art and craft can easily be taken into the great outdoors, with just a little imagination a walk in the park can lead to wonderful creations. Best of all, each season brings a fresh abundance of natural resources to use, meaning each creation will be totally unique. What better way to spend more time outdoors!”

The leaflets have been a big hit, and are being shared by organisations across the region. To access all the sheets, just click here
