Last Thursday we welcomed some magnificent Muddy parents and brilliant lifestyle bloggers to our wonderful “Woodland Feast” at the Skip Garden in Kings Cross, London. Described as an “urban oasis”, the venue is an unbelievable space filled with a charming collection of wild flowers, vegetables, herbs, beehives and even a chicken coop. The garden started as a moveable vegetable patch built into skips (hence the name) and provides a great sense of adventure where children able to explore elements of nature right in the middle of central London.
We couldn’t wait to splash around and utilise all of the wonderful space which the garden has to offer. For example, the Lantern House is built entirely from reclaimed windows, a truly beautiful and creative building.
Our adventurers had the opportunity to discover all of the Skip Garden’s amazing elements with a special Scavenger Hunt to kick things off!
We also ran some of our favourite nature activities to entertain all the younger attendees. From Nature Crown making, pendant decorating and tote bag painting to super science experiments with our friends, Little House of Science, there was something for every eager adventurer!
The children all had an amazing time, with most going back for second or even thirds, and I’m not just talking about the pizza and cakes! Explorers who had travelled from all over the country loved learning about Darwin, gravity and more.
Our Woodland Feast also provided us the perfect chance to showcase some new and exciting, forthcoming Muddy Puddles kit. We had a great range of fresh products on display, celebrating bright colours and pop prints, all inspired by Michael Morpurgo’s “Where My Wellies Take Me”. We were also so excited to show a sneak peak of our first collaboration with The Bright Company, this amazing project will be winging its way to your young puddle splashers for SS17.
Take a look at some more amazing moments from our day outside…

We would like to thank everyone who was able to join us, we had an amazing time and it was wonderful to see so many children having a great time outdoors over their half term break.
We would however like to apologise to all the Mums for filling their children up with sugar, we hope the journey home wasn’t too painful.
