Tiny Acorns Goes Wild!

Welcome back folks. Sorry it’s been so long. I’ve been super busy with a new baby, planning, supply teaching and (more importantly after all that) sleeping.

I tell you what, this current block of Tiny Acorns has gone off! Our numbers have gone through the roof so much that I’ve actually had to turn people away and start booking up the next block. It’s absolutely mental, I tell you.

It is fantastic, though. The kids absolutely love it and, with the extended timing, we’ve got so much more scope to explore and get involved in more in depth activities.

What have we done so far?

We’ve explored the dark and wild places!

 

We built fairy houses

We painted sham-rocks for our Saint Patrick’s day special

We’ve made magic wands

And, of course, we’ve had banana cake and milk to keep us going.

 But even better than all that, we’ve a new piece of kit that joins us on all our sessions. Say hello to the portable fire pit.

With this we can toast marshmallows, make popcorn and even rustle up a nice cup of hot chocolate (some day soon)

It doesn’t taste too bad either.

If you’d like to get on to our next run of Tiny Acorns, why not drop us a message? The next six week block will begin on April 29th and will cost £36 per child.

Hurry, though, spaces are filling up fast.

(If there is enough interest, I will start a second group on another day of the week.)

Tiny Acorns; starting to grow

Tiny Acorns has been running for two weeks now and the response has been fantastic with kids and adults enjoying themselves in equal measure.

I’d say were starting to find our rhythm too. Each session has a book at its centre, with fun games and activities that link to it. Our first week was The Gruffalo and the children had great fun making houses for mouses and playing hide and seek. This week the children gathered sticks, before being helped to tie them together into the shape of a man. We then read Stickman before going on an adventure to the river to play pooh sticks. Everyone had a blast!

Every session also includes a healthy home made snack and a drink. So far we’ve had two different types of naturally sweetened flapjack.

(Don’t tell anyone but this week’s was actually vegan and no-one noticed.)

Take a look at the pictures and, if you fancy popping along to our next session, why not drop us a message and get your name down. We’d love to hear from you.
