EXCITED children from Littlestars preschool, in Southbourne, put on their wellington boots to enjoy a day of activities at Prinstead beach.
The beach sessions aim to teach children to take controlled risks, build confidence and understand about seasons, weather, the coast and the great outdoors.
Gaby Funke Martin, from Littlestars, said: “The children had a lovely time on the beach. They first built a shelter and explored the beach and then created seats out of seaweed. Later on they collected wood for the fire and helped to build a fireplace. They all loved cooking marshmallows over the fire.”
