We are soon to launch our new website for the public forests in England. Take an early look at the beta site

Play your way through the woods

Children playingThese four Woodland Play Booklets are packed full of great ideas for families throughout the year and have been developed in partnership with the Woodland Trust. 

Each has a different playful theme - build, create, imagine and discover - and remember, getting muddy can be a sign of a fun day out! 

Build - from vole tunnels, mole castles and dormice bridges to giant nests and den building ideas

Create - from leaf scarves, bark boats, and magic wands, to muddy smiles and mud creatures

Imagine - look through a window to another world, set up a play camp and interview a tree!

Discover - go on a minibeast safari, try our 'Who's poo' challenge and have a great adventure off the beaten track

England's Woods and Forests are cared for by Forest Enterprise England, an agency of the Forestry Commission.
