Building a Barefoot Walk

The kids at an outdoor home ed meetup today had a go at building a temporary barefoot walk. After using branches like brushes to sweep and clear an area sticks were used to build a series of rectangles. The children then searched for different materials – grasses, leaves, sticks stones – to create different textures in each section. Loads of fun and quick and easy to dismantle and leave no trace.

    1. Hi Rosanna. I’m glad you liked it, the group had great fun building it and trying it out. All three of my children are unschooled. Hope you are enjoying your home ed journey!
