Tail tales

#Blogtober18: Forest creatures #nationalbadgerday

Advertisements

In honour of today’s National Badger Day, the #Blogtober18 prompt is Forest Creatures.  Rather serendipitously the mini ones afternoon drama group provided appropriate inspiration as one of the leaders handed out these fabulous clip-on tails.

A fox, badger and wolf design, the catching tails provided a spirited game of chase.

Apparently the tails are from Flying Tiger Copenhagen so I might just be paying them a visit to get our own set too!

Forest creatures weren’t the only animals the young actors embodied today as Clare Bevan’s poem Queue for the Zoo was also used as inspiration and saw them growling like tigers, skipping like hares and jumping as high as a kangaroo.

Are you a fan of the forest?  Help the Woodland Trust celebrate the power of trees to inspire on Tree Charter Day, Saturday, November 24th, part of National Tree Week.  Click here to find out more.
