Youngsters headed to the woods and transformed themselves into different characters as part of a summer parks event.
The children enjoyed a Costumes and Drama activity session at Mayesbrook Park in Dagenham yesterday.
They dressed up as different characters and acted out mini playes in the wooded area of the park.
