This session was our first session during the school holidays and was held at The Mount Junior School. Although it was cold, it was dry and bright.
After a lunch of tomato soup, hot dogs and baked beans cooked on an open fire the children set about making their gnomes. Small pieces of wood were sharpened to a point using sheath knives and then a small piece of bark removed to make a face. Then the gnome was painted and cones and sycamore seeds used to make a woodland home for the gnome. Many homes also included a pond so the gnome could follow their favourite pastime – fishing! The session finished with biscuits, drinks and games of hide and seek.
