Diggerland Kent

Earlier in the year we were lucky enough to be guests at Diggerland Kent. We had a fabulous time but then lockdown happened and it just didn’t feel like the right time to be writing about this great day out we had enjoyed, that now, no one else could. With the easing of restrictions it’s great to see that Diggerland is back and ready for visitors so here is a little bit about our experience.

L is a big fan of Roblox and though he doesn’t play the game much, mainly because I don’t understand it, I’m rubbish at these things, he really likes watching Roblox videos and playing with the toys.

New Scooby Doo Toys

L has spent the last week playing with some of the toys from the new Scooby Doo range from Character Options to celebrate the launch of the new movie, Scoob! in the US. 

He’s had a blast with them, they are so fabulous. 

We got a multi pack of figurines, including Scooby, Shaggy, Dick Dastardly, Blue Falcon, Black Rotten and Dusty Rotten. Then he got the Mystery Machine as well and it is awesome.

The count down to the Easter Holidays is well and truly on, add to that my annual holiday review at work and that means one thing and one thing only, that I am spiralling when it comes to trying to work out how I can make my limited amount of annual leave cover all the school breaks.

MYTHICAL CREATURES at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

It’s the first day of half term!! Whoop!! I’m really excited to have some time off work to spend with L and he is really excited to have some time off school. Starting the week off with a bang we headed to one of our faves, Roarr!

Roarr!
We were team Dragon for sure

This half term they are offering half price kids entry if they go in fancy dress and it was really fun seeing all the kids dressed up, running around and having fun. There are lots of fun activities to take part in too.

We caught up with my sister and my niece and just made the most of the fact that we were somewhere a one year old and a six year old could both have fun and that there were plenty of things for us to do inside in the warm.

L loves Blippi and has done for so long now. It all started through his love of tractors and us trying to find some suitable and not completely boring tractor videos for him to watch on YouTube.
