A Glasthomebury Rainy Weekend with Living Arrows 26/52

June 29, 2020

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”. Kahlil Gibran. Glasthomebury or in our case Glasteinbury was a fun way to brighten up our rainy weekend. We’ve had a lovely chilled out weekend after a pretty busy week of homeschool and sunny afternoons out.

Earlier in the week, we had exhausted ourselves with a couple of long walks in the lovely but slightly humid weather. I took this picture of Teddy which reminded me of a young Gerald Durrell. He was looking at a baby dragonfly and chatting about how to safely eat nettles!

We then celebrated Glastonbury festival by having our own Glasthomebury festival in the living room. The kids had their faces painted, made an assault course in the garden, made some clay pinch pots, had smores and watched various artists on the tv.

They especially enjoyed making a tent area in the living room with the rainbow parachute, a teepee and an awning over the tv to make the pyramid stage. It sounds like it was a lot of effort but it wasn’t as much as we thought it would be and we managed to sit down and relax more than usual.

We can highly recommend having a home festival one weekend to fill the many weeks of Summer at home! In fact I may just write up a post with some ideas on home festivals so watch this space.

  1. Teddy looks so at home barefoot in the woods and the festival is a great idea- I may pinch it and try something similar with my little girl x
