Fun at the Lollibop Festival!
We had a fantastic family day out at the Lollibop Kids Festival
in London last weekend! Activities, crafts, games and wonderful children’s entertainment were all on offer and the girls had a brilliant time (despite the sweltering heat!)
There were two performance areas at the festival with live children’s presenters and singers, as well as famous story book characters. The girls’ absolute favourite part was watching The Gruffalo live on stage (after being brave about how “big and scary” he was when they first caught sight of him!) Second to that show, Mister Maker’s appearance was next on the hot-list of favourite moments!
Some of the activities were a bit old for them or out of their interest zone, but there was a wonderful range of play time fun in the Under 3 Foot area, with art easels, baby sensory and ballet sessions, bubbles machines, dancing and plenty of hands-on toys to explore. They could have stayed and played all day!
Also on offer were some fantastic activity tents, ranging from weaving to painting, clay shape decorating to mask making. The B&Q Activity tent offered a really fun coaster making challenge, starting off with using saws and clamps to cut their own shapes from wood. It was great to see an idea that allowed kids to have a go at a typically “off-limits” activity!
The girls decorated theirs with paint and copious amounts of glitter and stickers (why not eh?!) and left them to dry as they went off exploring for the rest of the day.
At the end of the day we carted home 3 very happy, exhausted girls, lots of vibrant art work, 2 enormous helium balloons and some wonderful memories of a great family day out. Cakie is asking about next year already! Thank you Lollibop Festival!
