Children urged to celebrate right to play at National Playday event in King's Lynn woods
Children and their parents became one with nature on Wednesday when the Friends of Plantation Woods held a National Playday.
Youngsters were invited to take part in a number of activities at Plantation Woods, next to King’s Oak Academy, including rock painting, bug hunting and exploring dinosaur dens.
National Playday is a campaign which celebrates children’s right to play and highlights the importance of playtime in youngsters’ lives.
Organiser Lucy Ferrer said: “The day was a great success and we’re really pleased that so many families came and had fun.
“We had rock painting and bug hunting. We made clay faces, footprint butterflies and dinosaur dens, all whilst enjoying the outdoors.
“As a ‘Friends of’ group, our aim is to enjoy, maintain, and encourage others to use this natural green space and run many activities throughout the year. “
