The Little Welly
Muddy says: A sure-fire way to get ’em off the iPad, this epic obstacle course and festival 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 courses and festivals, in various locations in Oxon, Herts, Kent and Surrey. The 2018 dates local to us are 9 and 10 June in Henley.
The course is a 3km hop, skip, jump and dash through 30 challenges, taking in streams, trails, mud and woodland. If that doesn’t tire out the little blighters, what will?! Then there’s the accompanying festival with – deep breath – go-karting, live music, soft-play bus, helter skelter, zorbing, den building, climbing wall and pony rides. What more could you want? I think this is such a fantastic idea – get ‘em away from screens, into the fresh air and doing some exercise. And I quite fancy a pony ride myself.
