Fun at the Woodland Fair


outdoor fun

Last weekend we headed over to Sophia Gardens in Cardiff for the one day woodland fair which was a free event put on by the council and with the weather mainly dry we could't wait to see what was in store. The event was the perfect size, no too much going on but what was on offer was great for kids, from circus skills to making crafts, watching tree surgeons at work to discovering plant fossils in rocks, something Mr A loved in particular as it came kids free range to hammer away at rock more than 1 million years old.

There we also some owls and birds of prey on display and the trainer was kind enough to let Mr A stroke a Tawny Owl. There was also a dog show with a variety of different breeds, as well as local craft and food stalls and we picked up a jar of local honey.

After about 2 hours we decided to take a walk around Bute park and pick up a bite to eat at the Summer house, I had a lovely roasted veg and hummus panini while Mr A found some pretty flowers on the floor, after which we decided to burn some energy off by having a run around the park, playing hide and seek and climbing trees.

  2. What a fab event for the council to put on - and for free! Plenty of great activities for the children too, I could imagine the fossil discovering was very popular.
