It’s been a while- missed the wood, so got up early and enjoyed the smells and the sounds of the Forest. Lots of lovely memories came flooding back of our Branching Out Tots and Branching Out Learning groups over the years🥰🥰

We loved our last Nature Art Attack session at Pontymoile Canal Basin. We created clay boggarts, made blackberry paint and journey sticks! Thanks so much to the Canal and River Trust and Hannah Cubie for making these sessions possible!

We loved our time at Pontymoile Canal Basin celebrating the Myfanwy Haycock Poetry Trail launch. We had lots of fun building dream rafts and testing them. We also enjoyed creating our Myfanwy magic carpets.

30 Days Wild- Day 5 for me: fantastic nature learning with the amazing children at Meadowbank. We learnt about minibeasts, used clay outdoors and practised building a fire! I also took some time to begin my wildflower bunting- inspired by Saturday’s art sessions.

30 Days Wild- Day 3 for me: loved our Nature Art Attack sessions at Pontymoile Basin! All day in nature, being creative. Can’t beat it!


Fabulous day at Pontymoile Canal Basin today. The adults and children loved our Nature Art Attack sessions! Thanks to the Canal and River Trust for making it happen. More sessions to come this summer.


30 Days Wild has arrived- challenging you to do something each day linked to nature to improve well-being/conservation/ knowledge. Day 1 for me: a walk with my teenager, talking about life and noticing the wild flowers. Wonderful!


Yes ❤❤
