It’s so easy to introduce a little bit of magic and make-believe into childhood. It can turn an ordinary walk into an extraordinary adventure in a child’s eyes. We went on a magical adventure to find dropped pearls to make a necklace…
I took a length of wool and some pearls with holes for threading (we got them in the pound shop) which I dropped along our walk for Ms A to find.
She had a wonderful time discovering them and it kept her enthused to walk. She was pleased as punch as her brother helped her thread them onto the wool.
She walked for two miles without complaint which has got to help her sleep well!
It was so easy and so magical for a little girl with a wondrous imagination.
Who says diamonds are a girl’s best friends? 😉

Our walk took part on the Blorenge Mountain in Abergavenny. It was the most perfect and beautiful location for it and suitable for all level of walking enthusiasts. It’s a great place for little legs and has the most spectacular views for the most minimum of efforts.
