Forest School Waterproof Shelters
To keep us dry from a rainy afternoon, we constructed waterproof shelters using tarpaulin, rope and tent pegs. First, we found the perfect spot between two sturdy trees. We cleared the area of any trip hazards or animal habitats. Next, we unpacked the tarpaulin and laid it onto the ground. Then, using the rope, we tied a timber hitch around one of the trees and fed the rest of the rope through the tarpaulin. We pulled the rope all the way through to the other side then tied another timber hitch around the other tree. Finally, we secured the shelters with tent pegs into the ground. We then made two small tunnel shelters and had great fun crawling through them!
