The great thing about a party in the woods is that people who might not normally get to take part in Babes in the Wood get to come along. L. Was very excited at having her 4th birthday party in the woods and had been quite specific as to on what was to be involved.
Children hunted in the woods for their fairy helper, designated by their names like back stage passes to the woods and hung them with their wood cookies around their necks.
We had the story of how the bee became, then made little bees with carrier bag wings (homage to carrier bag fairy pole) an activity seen on Lily Horsemans Kindling website.
We came equipped to make hapa zome butterflies but after everyone cooked their pita pizzas and mini fruit crumbles there was just enough time to sing happy birthday and cut a most stunning cake.
Happy birthday Lily Grace.
