Charlesworth Snack bar
Snacks are the best way to avoid hangry kids but you want to give your little campers healthy snacks that will keep them full until dinner. Developing a child’s liking to healthy snacks isn’t a quick and easy, it’s a process. Kids can also be quite fussy and not everyone likes the same foods. Charlesworth Nuts know this oh so well and have devised a self-serve Nut Bar with a healthy array of snacks.
There is nothing as cozy and fun as playing a family board game when camping. Not to mention the thrill of rolling double sixes and being able to overtake a competitor. Games World Marion are setting up a trail of games for you to play.
