While we were there we spotted that there was going to be a Princess and Knight event on and so I popped the date in my diary to attend.
The day arrived and unfortunately it was a rainy day. But we was told that the event would be happening rain or shine. So we popped our raincoats on and set off out.
The event was only £2.50 to join in with and they had 3 activities going on.
The first activity was making a dream jar. First Lily got to choose her own jar from a box of them, we then took it over to a special decorating tent. The first thing lily did was cut up tissue paper to stick around her jar. She then had to write her dreams down on a piece of paper to put inside. Lily did mostly squiggles but this was her way of writing. We rolled that up and put it inside, lily could then choose some items to put inside. She put some stars, some flowers, and some gold inside her jar. We then attached the handle, with a little name label on that she made and the jar was finished. She was very impressed with the jar.
The next activity was sword training. This was an activity that I didn't think Lily would do as it had a man showing children different sword moves and they had to copy. Lily was a little shy of the man dressed as a knight but she soon got used to him and started to join in. I was really impressed at how well she copied the man and the other children joining in. She got most the sword moves pretty near correct. Each move she had to start with the sword on her shoulder and then she would either push it out forward or into the air. She really enjoyed this activity, although didn't want to go near the man when he was pretending to knight them.
We ended up having a really good day and managed to stay quite dry, although didn't stay as long because of the weather still being drizzly and damp.
We will definetly be keeping out eye out for more fun events at Gawthorpe Hall.
Who else has not bothered about the rain and still gone out for the day?
