Discovering monsters

We discovered this wonderful log on a walk; it looked like a long legged monster in need of a face.  A few leaves and some flowers soon became ears, eyes and a mouth and we had brought it to life.  What monsters can you bring to life the park or in the woods?

Funny faces!

Aston Rowant Nature Reserve hosted “Go Wild in the Chilterns” on Saturday the 4th August, a lovely outdoor event for families.  Going Wild was there making clay and stick creatures including funny faces – not that we could compete with Dan Barton’s wonderful giant wicker man!

Sound Sculptures

The new Sound Sculpture trail at Natural England’s Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve has inspiring sculptures to explore and listen to, made with help from local school children.  The children thought this one looked like a giant dormouse nest!
