Welcome to the Green School website - the best Bushcraft school in the Chilterns

Storybook Trail

We take a walk wood, and discover what happens when Millicent met the Wind, or Mouse found his courage, or Thor beat the Frost Giants, or the Bear woke up!

Stories told out of doors are a great way to introduce children (and adults) to nature. I offer it as an integral part of a guided nature walk for all ages. In this instance, it introduces children and sometimes adults to being in a wood: the sights, smells and sounds!

We start with a brief safety talk, before we all take a walk over to a quieter part of the deep dark wood, where the story you have chosen will be told As part of the walk the children will also be introduced to spotting and understanding signs of woodland animals, (and maybe Gruffaloes!) This activity requires the children to be observant and good listeners throughout. (In the winter months I can always tell the story of Thor & the Frost Giants and the ending of Winter's Grip, for an authentic seasonal touch!).

This activity suits ages 3+ years.

Time span: 1 hour (usually): depending on what you wish. It can be combined with nature ramble to look for animal tracks ands signs, to make an activity of 1.5 hours. When you book please tell me which story you would like me to tell :)

Group size: up to 20 children. (With 1 adult for every 5 children.)

£160 for a 1 hour activity;
£230 for a 1.5 hour activity

Sessions generally last for 1 hour, but I am always happy to put together a longer activity to suit your requirements: this is your day, I will work with you to make it really special. Please contact me if you have a query. Please Note: there is an additional charge of £8 per extra child, per hour of activity

Please Note: I can't paint faces at this activity: this was done for me by a make up artist at an event I was working at to enhance my (already) handsome face ;)
