    Default Communication Friendly Spaces

    I have a fairly healthy budget to purchase resources to help with CFS in my setting. Does anyone have any good ideas apart from the usual which are mostly on the CFS site?

    Thanks x

    You could buy half an hour in a room with Elizabeth Jarman. You would come out totally inspired!!

    I tend to think of CFS as very closely linked to den building but with a more cosy feel to it... chenille cushions rather than spiky branches type of thing.

    haven't looked at the site and I know how good your outdoor resources are but I read about placing tyres, logs, stones in a circle in your outdoors to encourage them to sit and chat together.
    if you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got

    Ha! I have done that bit already I am taking part in a pilot scheme for funded 2 year olds so quite a good opportunity to get some new resources. I am having some of the wooden clothes maids, some big peg thingies, stuff to make posts for outside that are concreted into buckets, outdoor camoflage netting and some packs of fairy lights. But I also need lots of cushions and mats and material and maybe some baskets or bags to put items of interest in! Hmm not sure

    They are one of the things the team has sourced for us so not sure really. Never seen any around for years

    No, me neither - have been looking for some but most are plastic these days, just not the same!
