Bee Wild at Pensthorpe this Half Term

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!

Half Term Plans

Other than being slightly confused with the May half term being fairly solidly in June I can’t believe how quickly it has come around. It means we’re nearly at the Summer holidays and that means L has nearly finished Key Stage 1!

I can’t go much further down that rabbit hole, this year is going by too fast and we haven’t really done anything!

Celebrate play and win educational toys with the Learning Resources® Festival of Fun!

Children have been learning via screens for weeks, and families are eager to take a break and have some screen-free fun this half term break! Norfolk-based leading educational toys company Learning Resources® started the Festival of Fun on Monday, 15th February and it runs until Sunday, 21st February.

I’m a bit late to the game, having been avoiding screens myself, however the week-long event is a celebration of hands-on play and parents will find lots of ways to keep children busy and enjoying screen-free fun at home. Each day, Learning Resources will be sharing new activities families can easily do, and there will be lots of educational toys and games prizes up for grabs. So please pop on over and have a look.

Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park

Over the weekend we headed to Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park for some family fun. It’s nice and close to us and we try to visit at least once a year, so on a cold and blustery Saturday, after two days cooped up n the house feeling unwell, it was the perfect destination.

Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

When it comes to days out with the kids in Norfolk Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park is a classic, it is jam packed full of things to do for all ages and all weathers. It’s also changing and growing which is lovely to see. I used to visit as a child when we stayed with family in Norfolk over our Summer Holidays and it is lovely to take L now and see some of the same dinosaurs I used to love whilst enjoying all the lovely new facilities. It will always have a soft spot in my heart and I feel I need to disclose that more than the fact we were gifted our tickets at the weekend!

An Amazing Day at Museum of Norwich at The Bridewell

I hadn’t visited the Museum of Norwich at The Bridewell since I was a kid. A middle school trip if I recall. Today L and I had been invited along to see the half term activities that Dipple & Conway Opticians had teamed up with them for to mark their centenary.

We’d already done loads that morning and I was worried L wouldn’t really be in the right mood, plus I woefully unprepared for a day out with a three year old.
