Staff were allowed to dress up and I got to paint catering and supervisors for once.

Still fits my hot water bottle up the front and is elegant yet understated (honest!). Toasty!

And every evening there was the magical lantern parade lit by whatever the families visiting had made in the Big Hat Crafting Tipi.

One thing that always surprises me is how many people who ask what a stencil is. Most are around my age, so lived through the ‘stencil everything’ decorating phase of the 80’s. And all of them have kids – my son is always coming home with pictures he drew at school using stencils. So, with Ellie the stenciller’s help here is our guide to the 2 different options at Bewilderwood.

1) Proper face paint from a wide range of designs that suit th park – put on with sponges, brushes and occasionally added stencil textures. May be whole or half face or just forehead.

2) Stencilling – facepaint sponged through a cut-out shape (a stencil). Far less skill involved and usually a smaller area of face covered.

Magical! And I’m saying that even after my toddler ‘forced’ me to do it every evening I was free….
