Baguette Battle Picnic Competition


With a love of Subway in tow we decided to head to the forest for a springtime picnic with a difference… We were going to have a baguette battle & compete in making our own deliciously filled baguettes.

We had a few other activities on the agenda including duck feeding, fairy door building & searching for signs of spring, but first and foremost was a visit to the supermarket for yummy supplies… Our budget was Β£10 to share between 4 children & 2 adults.

Our adventure took place at Cannops ponds in the Forest of Dean…
Here’s how we did…

We made a simple sign with our white board..


And we set up our table with everything we needed to fill our baguettes..


And the kids cracked on with making their delightful creations..




We made simple chef hats by putting together two pieces of paper and folding like a concertina fan, we then put sticky tape along each end and opened up to fit on our heads…
Even Noah had a go at a chocolate spread & banana baguette…


Ever one was very proud!

After we had finished we cleared away our picnic table ready to make some fairy doors..



We placed our doors in the tree bases..

We then headed for a walk around the duck ponds… Noah got weigh laid with puddles & his sisters welly…


We found mythical water tree dragons that we climbed on and tamed….



And headed deeper into the forest to explore…the girls searched for secret places….


But most often ended up at the waters edge..


I hope they were contemplating the day & appreciating being sisters…


As we headed home we stopped of at the arboretum to search for signs of spring and found some beautiful blossom…


We had a really good day and with full bellies we headed home to decide who was to be awarded the coveted & prestigious golden baguette award πŸ™‚
