… The Beach Book!
I remember a boring afternoon on a deserted beach with no mobile phone signal, no technology, not even a ball! Dan and I refused to lie in the sun, so we picked up our copy of The Beach Book to get some inspiration and find something fun to do. We soon found a driftwood plank and after whittling a handle with my penknife and wrapping it with string to improve the grip we had a perfect cricket bat! We made a ball from plastic bags wrapped tightly around a pebble and tied together with string. We started with a team of two but our screams of excitement attracted other bored kids and soon our makeshift cricket game was the most popular thing on the beach!
The moral of this story is to remember to get your copy of The Beach Book now so you have it ready to pack before you set off on your holidays this summer!

The Beach Book, just in time for the holidays!
Very soon, out of the soil, out of the roots, out of the wood, a dragon will emerge…..
Here is one of it’s feet….
And this is its tail as it snakes off into the woods…..
If you are brave enough, come and see it’s head emerging, and join us at the launch party on Sunday 14th June, between 10am – 2pm at Magdalen wood, Wood Farm, Oxford OX3. Listen to The Dragon’s story, make your own baby stick dragons, build your own den or hideaway and join in with the fun around the fire….
We would like to thank all the den builders from The Treehouse school www.http://thetreehouseschool.org.uk for letting us come and see your amazing Wild Woodland Dens. We had a wonderful day and especially enjoyed the your delicious golden slices (savoury flapjack) and homemade tomato soup, which tasted even better for eating out in the dens!
