Schleich Farm World Large Horse Stable – Review

We love Schleich toys in our house, they are always a big hit with the kid and so detailed. We’ve already got a few bits including the Schleich Wild Life 4 x 4 Vehicle and an amazing Dino Set with Cave so we were both really excited when we were asked to review the Farm World Large Horse Stable.

Stopping Homework Battles with Poio

I don’t know about you but as soon as the word homework is mentioned my kid just switches off. t can be hard to get them on board with completing more work when they have got home from a day of doing work at school. Understandably so and quite honestly I’m not sure how I feel about what is expected of my Year 1 child to complete after school, so we are finding fun ways to get round it. Poio is one of those fun things.

Toasty Toes with the Sock Shop

We recently had a lovely delivery of socks from the Sock Shop and I have been impressed.

I have a bit of a weakness for socks, I’m always buying new ones. I love a fluffy sock, long socks, funny socks. So I’m always happy to get socks. Husb is starting a new job and goes through socks at a rate of knots so it was handy to get some for him. Mainly though I wanted to see if we could find anything for the child, socks are an ongoing and incredibly irritating battle. He is determined he cannot put them on by himself and is painfully fussy about what can be on them.

Pensthorpe Natural PArk

This summer we visited Pensthorpe Natural Park for the first time, ridiculous as we are local! It is amazing. Really amazing. We had the best day. There is so much to do we can’t wait to visit again to catch the bits we missed and to repeat our fave bits. I can’t sing its praises enough but I shall try to keep this review a reasonable length, promise.

Visit Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure This Summer

We love Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure and have visited many, many times over the years. It has something for everyone and is the perfect way to spend a day this summer.

Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

I’ve written in depth about Roarr! before, covering all the reasons we think it’s great. Today I’m just going to cover some reasons it’s fab during the summer.

Summer at Barracudas Activity Day Camps

L spent 4 days of his first week off school with the guys and girls (and fish) of Barracudas in Norwich. He went with his best friend and had a blast.

I’ve already spoken about how much he enjoyed it when he went at Easter, and how helpful I’ve found it as a childcare solution. I’ve worried about what to do as a first time attendee/parent at the camp.
