We are going to be off camping but will take some things to do with us smile

We are going away with like minded pagan family who also have children so am looking for inspiration for a couple of kiddie crafts although we are taking stuff for corn dollies.

Other than that, relaxing in the field, taking it easy, watching the sunset at the stone circle that the campsite overlooks and a shared meal smile

What are your plans?

We’re going to have a family meal, other than that, we haven’t made any plans! They’ll probably be bread based though! x

I’m rather luckily going to glastonbury goddess conference this year! Its tugging on my heart strings a bit as it means being without dd but as I’ve not got long left of this pregnancy to go and there are lots of mother rising and birth workshops I’ve decided to go. I feel very lucky though. On the actual day though me and little one are going to make some corn dollies and salt dough painting x

Ooh lucky you, I went with my Mum and had a lot of fun smile

Thank you for the reminder,  I need to give this some thought.  wink

I’d love to make corn dollies but this is the sort of thing I never get organised enough to do - anyone care to share a link to good instructions and where to get materials? Assume one gathers them but where from?

The friends we are camping with live surrounded by a big field growing corn, luckily they rent from the farmer and have asked him if they can take a few stalks, I have previously taken them from the very edge of the field where thy wouldn’t be able to be harvested from so see it as the waste if that makes sense?

I don’t have instructions but I am sure there are plenty online smile

Then gather wool from the fences and make something from it?
I have always seen festials as a good reason to make the most of where you live and get to know what to do with things you can forage, like wool in this case smile

This year as every year, making corn dollies, flowerpot bread, some salt dough harvest mice,  a picnic tea sititng in the hayfield then once children in bed a few properity and thanks rituals and spells for the harvest ahead of us. Some local cider/apple juice is usually sourced, so a trip to Brogdale near Faversham too.

We just make a harvest loaf, and sometimes corn dollies too if we can get hold of some corn, but I found this article with some rituals for those interested.

We would usually try to use lots of our garden produce in our evening meal, but ha, the only produce this year has pretty much already been eaten by the children (fail).  :S

Love and blessings to you all.  smile
