What is inside the Wild Woods Box?
This wonderful art box is full of projects exploring trees, leaves and woodland creatures, and also has 6 extra forest art activities to do outside inspired by Land Art!
Learn all about trees by investigating linear branches and colourful collages. Explore the wide variety of leaves in our woodlands by creating your own leafy friends and a hanging branch mobile. Discover woodland creatures and make birds perched on recycled trees as well as a friendly cardboard fox.
Woods are places that contain enchanting things alongside fearful things – places where heroes go to slay dreadful dragons and where friendly fairies live next to wicked witches. Woods too are places that help reduce stress and promote a sense of well-being. The Japanese have an expression for it, shinrin-yoku, which means ‘bathing in the forest atmosphere’.
