Youngsters and parents got creative on Sunday as they took part in the fifth Big Draw event at Hinchingbrooke Country Park.
On exploration of the park budding artists took inspiration to create maps, stories and cartoons.
Alison Gray, countryside centre co-ordinator said: “The Big Draw, was a great success with everyone, young and old, enjoying a range of activities to encourage them to draw.”
Throughout the day parents and children followed a fun trail around the park looking for fairies or pirates, through enchanted forests and past the pirate’s lookout, drawing and making leaf rubbings along the way.
“When they returned from their adventure they had paper, crayons and pastels to play with to create their very own fantasy map,” added Alison.

The Big Draw is the world’s biggest drawing festival with thousands of enjoyable, and mainly free, drawing activities which connect people of all ages.
