Forest School at Home with Mr Lenton

Spending time outdoors can help us feel really good. I am enjoying going for walks around my town and the countryside around it. We all love our time at school where we get to do forest school activities so I thought each week I would share something you could do at home, in your gardens or even during your time outside on a your daily walk or other form of exercise.

Muddy Faces


Muddy faces are a great way to get really dirty and express ourselves creatively. You can use items you find on your walks to help you or you could find some interesting things in your garden to use.


Listen to the story below and create your very own 'something else' on a tree or on a flat surface in your garden!

Something Else (By Kathryn Cave) - read by Inspired Narrator

Just wanted to share this cute and touchy children's book that I adore. Please note: the illustrations and the text are the works of Chris Riddell and Kathry...

Creating a muddy face is really easy all you need is some mud and a little bit of water!

Watch the video below to see how to make a muddy face. There are also some pictures below to inspire you.

How to make your own funny muddy faces

Our environmental education officer Carolyn shows you how to get 'really wild' at home and make your own funny muddy faces.

Don't want to get dirty?

Instead of mud you can replace it for salt dough!


To make a batch of salt dough all you need is one cup of flour, half a cup of salt and half a cup of water. Combine the salt and flour and then slowly mix in the water until a dough is formed. Add more water if needed.
