In the middle of March, I was one of several people asked to run a workshop at the Grounds for Learning National Networking Conference. I blogged about my Messy Outdoor Maths workshop recently. This week, the video clips went live on YouTube. So here’s a wee peek at mine and everyone else’s.

My friend Mandy Tulloch, who runs her own company, Mud Pies, also can be seen with lots of ideas and suggestions for using natural materials with pre-school children. For more information, have a look at the Mud Pie blog post too.

It’s a small world! Penny Martin gave a wonderful workshop about using fire. She’s currently working as the FEI Forest School Scotland Coordinator but we worked together on a Forest Kindergarten Feasibility study and have delivered courses together.

Gordon MacLellan, often known as Creeping Toad is an environmental arts and education worker. He has published several books linking art, literacy and nature in creative ways. His workshops and events are always popular.

Finally have a look at the advice from Judy Legg of Playlink and Angus Eagan of Earth Calling. Judy is known for her work developing natural playspaces particularly in Stirling Council which have been highlighted as UK examples of good practice. There’s some super photos and ideas on this clip.

It would be fantastic if you could share these video clips with other people who are interested in outdoor play and learning.
