Wild Play At Hundred Acre Woods

Yesterday we got together with 4 other families from our home ed group and went for a wild play in Hundred Acre Woods, near Wickham.
It was a really cold, but beautifully sunny day and Hannah and i had never been to this particular part of the wood before. There is a natural playground there with a huge sand area, teepees, a tree house, a tower in the woods and lots of balancing bridges and pathways. The children had a wonderful time exploring, jumping in mud, climbing and running. We had a picnic in the sunshine (lentil and veggie soup and hot chocolate to beat the chill!), and then the older children wanted to go for a woodland walk. So Hannah and i, and two other families went off to explore the woodland - we found fallen trees to play on, a stream, lots of mud, a woodpecker hole and a branch den to play in.
It was a lovely, lovely day!
