Lizzie's magical forest adventure

11 May 2015

Last weekend we had the most amazing time, deep in the bluebell woods with trickling stream and dappled light...Lizzie's Way! Our friend Lizzie is a super creative lady who creates a Camp Bestival woodland adventure, full of games and activities for kid's to get in touch with their wild side. 
This one day event on the Isle of Wight is part of Camp Bestival on tour.
I really wanted to be a five year old again ; )

There ware so many places to explore and kids running about in all directions. I tried not to get other children in shot for the purpose of this blog, I waited until the end. There was potion making, reading corner, puppet theatre, wish making, flag making, treasure hunting, dressing up, mud kitchen, dens, play shop, and more! Every tiny detail was so creative and colourful, and exactly what the kids wanted (and tea and biccies for the adults!).

we loved this 'make a wish' ribbons...our littlun made a 'drawing' instead!

brilliant puppet theatre!

panning for gold coins in the stream!

It was simply magical and we feel very lucky to have had the chance to see it. You will be able to go to a similar event at the Camp Bestival woods where Lizzie will be covered in mud and toddlers I expect! 

you can find out more about what Lizzie gets up to via her Facebook page...and instagram.

  1. Dreamy, heavenly loveliness. Loved the dressing up pics. Pehr looked like a circus mistress in the top hat.

  2. So great! I wish there was something like this in the States!

  3. I would like to be 5 again too, what a wonderful day that would be.

  4. I want to be little again!

    Pehr must have had a wonderful time! Bet she's still talking and dreaming about all of it!

    She has such nice parents to take her to things like this! Just awesome!

  5. What a magical way to spend the day! Pehr is getting so big and she is just beautiful! You are a lucky mama and papa!!

  6. What incredible creativity your friend Lizzie possesses. Beautiful pic of Pehr and Nao at the top.

  7. That first picture is a treasure forever just brilliant. Surely someone has approached you to do a book by now I'm sure it would be stunning.

  8. This is magic! what a great idea.

  9. Łał! Wspaniałe magiczne cudowne niesamowite. Marzenie każdego dziecka! :)

  10. Ahhh, this looks amazing - we're going to the one at the Aspex Gallery in Portsmouth, I hope it's half as good as yours!

  11. This is pure magic!! Oh, to be five ... This is how I want the childhood of our future children to look like. So inspiring!
