Goal power Flapjack Snacks

Goal Power is a new kid’s healthy flapjack snack and game that promotes children reaching their goals and enjoying a healthy active lifestyle. The idea is the children enjoy the healthy, fibre and nutrition-packed snack and then they can collect cards or set goals online to achieve.

The aim is to help kids to get outdoors, be active and take some time out from their screen time.

Flying Science

I am always looking for fun new activities to keep L occupied over the summer holidays and if they have some educational benefit then even better. The Flying Science Kit from Toys & Bears is a perfect example of that. Not only did it fill an otherwise boring day when we were stuck at home waiting on workmen, it has taught him about various types of propulsion and lift and has left him with some great toys that he has built and will last.

Summer Fun at Pensthorpe

Always one of our favourite days out we headed to Pensthorpe Natural Park at the weekend to check out what they were up to this summer.

We started our trip with a visit to Hootz House indoor play, but upon setting foot inside L decided he’d rather be out in the sunshine. Fair enough! So we spent the first hour playing outdoors and making the most of all the play equipment on offer. It was a lot quieter in the morning than when we walked through later in the day so that’s worth remembering.

Amazona Zoo & Football Golf

Yesterday we headed to Amazona Zoo in Cromer to spend a fun summer day with friends. As well as seeing all the animals and having lots of fun in the play area we also ventured across the carpark for a round of Football Golf. 

It’s safe to say the kids had a blast. Whilst at the zoo they spent most of their time on the play area. With the one a system that is currently in place the free flow nature of the zoo has been lost and a few quite significant areas have been cordoned off, which for a small zoo was a big deal. This meant that once they were at the play area they were reluctant to leave as they were aware it wouldn’t be so easy to get back to. It didn’t stop the fun though.

GeoSafari SeaScope

Do you have a child who is so very interested in the natural world around them? I do and it is lovely but it comes with a huge amount of questions, which, whilst again lovely, is also very draining! Well I am always looking for ways to answer some of those questions and the GeoSafari SeaScope allows L to see what is actually happening under the water, so instead of asking, he can look.

Dig & Display Fossil Kit

With the summer holidays looming it’s always good to have some activities up your sleeve for a rainy day. For us one of the things we go back to time and time again are fossil dig kits. They are simple and easy to use and happily keep L occupied for quite a while depending on the size. We’ve recently tried the Dig & Display Fossil Kit from Learning Resources and its one of the best we have had!
