WHAT SHALL WE DO TODAY, KIDS?
With kids under 11 going free and so much inspiring stuff to do on-site, FolkEast is truly a family-friendly festival. Let the kids take the lead if you like, but you’ll soon find the ideas tripping off the tongue in addition to all that ad hoc fun courtesy of street entertainers.
Do-si-do at the family ceilidh. Track down the jackalope. Find out about foraging. Paint a pebble. Whittle away some time in the woodcraft tent. Go donkey-riding. See a steam engine. Go on a bug hunt. Race about and join in the tug of war. Make a mud-pie or two. Listen to terrific tales in the story shack. Learn the ukulele. Cook on a campfire. Create a necklace and craft a wand. Get a jig-doll dancing to the tunes of a hurdygurdy. Tuck into some tasty local treats. Crochet a stitch or two. Print a festival t-shirt. Go potty with clay.
