Hut and fire making. A walk to discover the forest through tricks and tips for making a hut.
Who doesn't have a tree house in the corner of their mind? Imagined and hoped for, realised and then abandoned to the whims of the seasons to come.
A hut built on a summer's day to store up dreams. A hut whose construction and fragility have sealed long-lasting friendships... It's important for children to experience all this, to taste the unforgettable flavour and pleasure of creating worlds so close - and so far - from the noise of the city.

Each new tree house is a home, and so opens up the possibility of an invitation to others. In this way, the child invents hospitality. Building a tree house means helping to create a new reality.
With some friends, we're going to build a tree house in the woods using string and branches, moss, ferns, leaves, etc. First we have to choose a good spot, against a rock, between some trees, etc. Then we have to collect everything this corner of nature has to offer and imagine how it will be used: roof, walls, windows, entrance, etc.
Then we have to choose a name for the hut, build shelves, a kitchen, even a toilet... And to top it all off, we build a fire in front of the hut so that our friends can grill marshmallows together... It's great!
