The Scarecrows Wedding: Family Outdoor Play Session at Parc Penallta

21 July, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

💒 “Let’s have a wedding, the best wedding yet. A wedding that no one will ever forget!”💒

Join us in the woods for a morning of muddy family fun! Our theme for the session will be Julia Donaldsons well loved story “The Scarecrows Wedding”!

We’ll be helping Harry O’ Hay and Betty O’ Barley get ready for their big day by:

💒 Gathering the items needed for the wedding from around the woods using the scarecrows list (flowers, rings, feathers, shells etc). 🐚 💍 🌸

💒 Making our own little scarecrows to take home! 👪

💒 Stuffing our very own full size scarecrows

💒 Making the wedding cake in our mud kitchen 🎂

💒 Decorating the venue with mud paint and paper chains 🎨 💦

💒 Creating confetti from nature and using it at the ceremony 🎊 🌸

💒 Hammering flowers and leaves onto Betty’s beautiful wedding dress with mallets to leave behind a print (Happa Zome)

💒 There will also be an interactive story retelling with props and puppets, rhymes, mini den building, hammock, play equipment at the brook (nets, buckets etc), parachute play, woodland games, chalking, bubbles, and lots more! 🌈

To book on to this event please select ‘Going’ and state the number and age of children coming with you below in the comments. Spaces are limited and events get fully booked very quickly.

Sessions costs £7.50 per child (siblings under 1 free). £5 deposit payable on booking. Details provided via messenger. 🌳

Parking is free at Caerphilly County Borough Councils main car park which is usually completely empty on a Sunday. As you walk out of the car park, turn left and follow the pavement towards the cycle track entrance.

Follow my signs towards our site in the woods which will appear on the right of the cycle track marked with large sitting stones and bunting. 🚩

(This is a ten minute walk for an adult and perhaps slightly longer for children so buggies/ carriers recommended for tired legs afterwards!)

Dress for mess with wellies if you have them!
