WILD AT HEART- a monthly online subscription Zine, filled with hands on activities for helping kids connect with the earth, themselves and others. Grab a coffee and relax. Wild At Heart is here to both inspire you as well as save you time and energy. Over the years I have spent countless hours researching and creating great activities— now its time to share!
Wild at heart-- sums The Forest School gang up completely. Twelve years of wild hearts running around, exploring, discovering, questioning, imagining… So many “ings”. Through all of them, we have learned so much. My toolbox of resources, ideas, and activities has taken on a life of its own. My knowledge of ninjas, frogs, circus arts, Lake Superior, magic, and survival is 100 times what it was before! Imagine, if I did not have the honour of working with this amazing group of kids, I might not have learned that the life of a Sumo Wrestler is steeped in extraordinary ritual and ceremony, or that fox pee has a very distinct smell, or even that there used to be such things as bug circuses.
At The Forest School what we learn about is largely determined by the kids. They pick the theme for the term, and I do the research and come up with the most engaging means of guiding our group in its exploration as I can. I love it!!! It keeps me on my toes. Mixed in with all the different themes we explore, is an underlying message and commitment to environmental and social responsibility. We spend time learning to care about the earth, others and ourselves. We are putting the time into becoming great humans. It seems to me the most important thing to master. (Although ninja moves are a close second).
Wild At Heart is my way of passing on what I have learned, and continue to learn along the way. I hope you find some gems to share with your people!
