The Little Welly
A sure-fire way to get them off the iPad, this epic obstacle course and festival in Henley is always a massive hit with kids.
This one’s all about getting muddy, so naturally us Muddy crew are very much on board. The Little Welly organise summer children’s obstacle course and festivals in various locations. For our ‘hood’ its Henley on Sat 6 and Sun 7 June but if you can’t wait that long nip down to Sevenoaks in Kent on either the 16 or 17 of May.
The course is a 3km (or 5km if you’re feeling super energetic) hop, skip, jump and dash through 30 challenges, taking in streams, trails, mud and woodland. Oh, and did I mention new this year is a 5or 10k family trail run – you could even stay the weekend as Saturday night camping is an option and do both! If that doesn’t tire out the little blighters, what will?
Then there’s the accompanying festival with – deep breath – caving, climbing, ponies, live music, comedy and magic shows, loads of family activities and yummy food options. I think it’s such a fantastic idea – get them away from screens, into the fresh air and doing some exercise. And I quite fancy a pony ride myself.
