a house in the wood 1    dino      bear_hunt

It feels like this book was written for wilderness wood! Our very own theme tune in a story.

When two little Pigs leave their home-made huts one morning, two very large friends move in- Moose and Bear. It’s very nice to have your friends stay, but not when they cause your home to collapse!  The solution: build a house where all four of them can live together, little and big.  With some help from the beaver builders and LOT of peanut butter sandwiches, that’s exactly what they do. Set in a idyllic woodland world.

The children are invited to bring with them their favourite bear, dinosaur or woodland toy, or let us provide soft toy animals to share in small groups.  We can then go for a walk around the secret path to collect materials to make a home for our little friends. Learn how to make a shelter, collect food, add a table and chair, a garden, swings and a slide! Once finished we can share and take turns to visit each shelters, ask questions and allow children to talk about their house in the wood!

This party is endearing and industrious!
