Cooking outside (2012-0618)

This was a very exciting session as we used the wild, fenced off portion of the playground.

We started with Circle News: Pass was the main news item, as people found talking and being outside a trial. Ellie mentioned her animation on youTube.

Tim outlined the dangers of fire and the smelly, sewage-full backwater.

Tegan fed the main fire and Debbie made Damper Dough with a group while Tim helped everyone who wanted to to light a cotton wool ball with a fire steel.

We lit a second fire and everyone cooked a damper on a stick.

Magnus' dad finished stacking the ash logs neatly, at the bottom of the pile we found a frog and a toad, which we carefully relocated.

Unfortunately we did not have time to cook the marshmallows or brew the tea!

We ended with the circle song.

Leaders: Tegan, Debbie, Tim
Helpers: Ellen, Louise, Oliver, Kiara
Elfs: 18
Pixies: 3
