Each glamping season we run a children’s competition and this year it was to create a menu inspired by nature and playing in the Valleyside Escapes mud kitchen. It is one of the features in our play area and was hand-crafted by Matt! Young glampers were tasked with creating a menu to include a starter, main, side, dessert and drink. There were three finalists and the Valleyside Escapes Facebook followers were asked to vote for their favourite menu. The winner is Willow aged 3, she has been crowned the ‘Mud Kitchen MasterChef’ for 2023. Her menu includes grass lemonade, wood chip meatballs and rock cakes. We would definitely like a seat at the chef’s table to enjoy this delicious nature-inspired meal!
Willow wins a ‘Go find it game’ also inspired by being in the great outdoors and created by the Sensory Trust. It is an instant natural treasure hunt, a simple, sensory, fun card game that can be played anywhere outdoors. The game consists of 32 uniquely designed cards in a small drawstring bag which represent different sensations and sensory characteristics you can find outdoors in nature.
