making charcoal

Forest school was loads of fun today - we made a paint pallet of different colors which we found in nature
Blue from bluebells
Green from grass
Brown from mud
purple from a flower
black from charcoal
orange from a stone
yellow from dandelions
Red from a leaf!

We also made charcoal by cutting logs with a special tool, putting them in a tin and burning it over the fire

We had fruit kebabs whilst we were waiting

And when the charcoal was ready we made pencils with it using elder wood.

I think charcoal is something we are going to explore further!

Afterwards Acey went to Thursday fun club at the local church where they learned first aid.
