“Mini Stompers is a monthly gathering for 2 hours of fun in the Woods for 0-5year olds.”
As a new parent in the area Di realised that this was something that was missing in Kendal so we approached South Lakes District Council and the Fellside Forum, who look after Serpentine Woods in Kendal, to see if we could use these beautiful woods. We ran our first session in April 2016 and it has gone from strength to strength. We are honoured to have such fabulous families turn up month after month in wind, rain or shine. We are really excited to be running the Kendal Mini Stompers in 2017 as well.
The Mini Stompers Ethos:
Mini Stompers gives families and friends time to get down and dirty (as in the opposite of up and clean) with each other and PLAY. It’s an opportunity to turn off the logistics machine in our brains and really spend some time trying to see that crazy monster in the mud pile which is so real for our wee folk. Play is the tool our children use to learn how to live life, and Mini Stompers is the perfect place for them use that tool uninterrupted and for you to spend time immersed in their world.
What you can expect to get out of it:
“Ahhhh…. Now I see, there are the eyes, and that’s the nose right?” (A greater understanding of what actually goes on in that disproportionately large brain of theirs.)
Thank you to both SLDC and the Fellside Forum for having us and to all the families who have supported us and helped Mini Stompers grow.
