This summer we are filling our days full of fun with the Coca-Cola ParkLives activities. There are so many activities to choose from at a variety of locations around the UK that you really should check out the list of activities and see what is happening near you.
This weekend we headed to Heaton Park to take part in the very first Donkey Grooming session that was held there and we had an amazing time.
The children were taught about the different brushes that you use to groom the donkeys and set to work.
Although we were only there for an hour the girls had an amazing time and we have already booked to go back.
The session was for children aged 5 to 12 and each child needed an adult to supervise so I took along one of my friends to help. I think us grown-ups enjoyed it just as much as the children!
The children were taught all about caring for the Donkeys from cleaning and brushing them, cleaning out their hooves and even washing their eyes.
They then had to comb the donkey’s tails before heading to have a look around their stable and paddock.
This was an amazing experience, unlike anything we have done previously and it was just the first Coca-cola ParkLives activity we have attended. We are already looking at attending Roaming Rangers, Muddy Hands and more Donkey Grooming sessions in the next few weeks. Make sure you check out activities near you and remember although a lot of them are family friendly there are some great adult only activities too.
