The children In Big Bumbles have been practicing their whittling skills. They have been using basic tools such as potato peelers to do this. This activity required lots of concentration from the children. With the peelers the children were able to strip off the leaves and bark from sticks and wood. The Big Bumbles all listened well to the instructions about how to ensure their safety while whittling. This is a skill which will be worked upon during some upcoming forest school sessions.
