If you are looking for something fun to do locally this half term then why not book yourself tickets to Pensthorpe? They have a totally awesome Bee Wild theme at the moment with a trail for the kids to follow and a fun Bee activity booklet. Plus at the end of the day, not only will your little one get one of the lovely Pensthorpe badges (anyone else got a growing collection?) but they’ll also get a little packet of seeds!Continue reading Bee Wild at Pensthorpe this Half Term
With the kids back at school I’m thinking more and more about handwashing and antibacterial hand gel again. Its been ok whilst he’s been home because I’m there to monitor everything and have plenty of moisturiser. I can’t be there all the time though. We’ve recently been using the Anti-Bacterial Slime from Canal Toys and it’s been fun.Continue reading Canal Anti-Bacterial Slime
L and I love to get in the kitchen and bake together. Neither of us are very good but we enjoy it. With Easter on the horizon we’ve both got that Spring feeling so when we saw the Craft & Crumb Easter Biscuit Making Kit we had to give it a go.Continue reading Make Your Own Easter Biscuits with Craft & Crumb
On a week where L had been focusing on The Three Little Pigs at school and we had read, watched and listened to various bland and boring versions of the story seemingly thousands of times we needed a bit more excitement in our topic. Thankfully we discovered Readmio, or should I say, Readmio discovered us and we were enamoured.Continue reading Readmio – Review
Last week we headed off to Silverstone to check out their most fabulous Christmas event, LAPland. It was brilliant. The lights, the atmosphere, the set up. Just getting to have be on such an iconic track in our car was amazing. It’s definitely worth a visit.
Last week I left work a few minutes early so I could get home and fill the car with snacks, blankets and a small picnic dinner. I picked L up from school and as soon as we got back home, Christmas jumpers were donned and we got straight into the car and started our journey to Silverstone, we were on the road by 3.30pm which I thought was quite an impressive turnaround!Continue reading Getting Festive at Silverstone with LAPland

We spent a very happy and hot day at Roarr! with a very happy and hot child this week. During lockdown I had asked L to write down anything that he wanted to do once we were able and visiting the dinosaurs was on that list, so when we were gifted tickets to visit I couldn’t wait to tell him.Continue reading Summer Holidays at Roarr!
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.Continue reading Diggerland Kent
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!
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.Continue reading MYTHICAL CREATURES at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure
