Forest Kindergarten

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried to recreate a forest kindergarten type experience? For example:

 

I am considering it. We already play outside lots and we have a woodsy big yard. I've got twins and we plan to start formally homeschooling in the fall when they are about 5.5. (with a tag along younger sibling). They'd be thrilled if I let them use knives and have fires.

I don't really try to recreate the forest kindergarten, but my kindergartener does spend most of her time outside. We live a few yards from the (dry) river, and we spend a lot of time down there. She basically lives outside, and I throw in some phonics and math (living and otherwise) in there. :D

Same.

 

There are some fun books...Dangerous Book for Boys, Play the Forest School Way, etc...

This looks awesome! I'm trying to think of some ways I could do a bit of this. I'll have a 4th grader next year, too. Maybe something like every friday we just go out. We live in the middle of a city but a half hour drive would get us to the mountains.
