Sunny Nature Evening With 1st St Austell Brownies
Last month Melissa led an exciting evening of nature based activities at The Meadows with the 1st St Austell Brownies.
The Brownies were really keen to check out their bee hotel, bee box and bird box that they decorated and installed late last year.
After inspecting their handiwork the Brownies had a great time with a nature themed scavenger hunt and searched all over the site for the clues
It was a fantastic evening that was enjoyed by every and Jemma the Brownie leader had this to say,
'Our Brownies had a brilliant time with Melissa, doing their scavenger hunt. The girls were running around happily, with lots of excited shouts whenever a clue was discovered! The structure and content of the activity made it easy to build in little conversations about the habitats, helping us to bring the focus back to nature. It’s definitely something I will use to inspire other activities when we’re out and about. Melissa was so well prepared, with all the equipment, extras, books… and for us leaders it’s so great when you feel like the external person really has everything under control. Much appreciated! I really would recommend activities like this to anyone I know who works with children and young people, with an interest in nature. Brilliantly organised, well-equipped, reliable and reassuring, and really engaging!... The unexpected treat of the party bags to take away at the end was really the cherry on a lovely evening and made everyone smile. Walking back to the parents, I could overhear plenty of conversations about what seeds they had, where they were going to grow them…Thank you ever so much!’
