Family Festival Fun!

Having kids doesn’t mean the festival fun has to stop, it just has to change a bit! A pushchair with a big basket underneath for all your kit is very useful (actually even if you’re not taking the kids!), and of course it must have a Buggysnuggle for your little one to snuggle up in when they zonk out after a day of running around in the fresh air!FAST ASLEEP IN HER BUGGYSNUGGLE IN THE MUSIC TENT AT ROCK OYSTER FESTIVAL

What with this being the UK, chances are it’ll be blooming freezing and 99% of heat is lost through the head apparently (well that’s what my mum always told me!), so a hat is a must – a little sun dress, jumper & funky hat is a great festival look for kids anyway!! Winking smile Buggysnuggle hats tick all the boxes! LOP200-3

A Buggysnuggle Picnic Rug is a must – honestly, you will love them! Sit on it in the sun, or use it as a shelter when it’s raining – I’ve used them in both ways several times! In fact it’s big enough that you can sit on it & have half of it folded back over your head! It folds up small & can be easily carried… PIC191-5

Finally, to snuggle up in the tent or campervan much later on, a Sofasnuggle is the ultimate festival luxury for kids!  SOFASNUGGLEsThere are loads of festivals aimed at families nowadays:
