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!Continue reading Dig & Display Fossil Kit
I remember moving house when I was in high school and our new house had a massive back garden, with a huge lawn and loads of space to play. That summer we got a badminton set and me and my sister spent hours in the garden playing. It was great. So when asked if L would maybe like his own badminton starter set, of course I said yes!Continue reading Win a Badminton Starter Set
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. Hurrah for Barracudas Activity Day Camps.
Last year we snet L and his best friend to try out Barracudas Activity Day Camps for a few days over the Easter Break and they loved it so much they went agan over the summer holidays. This year we’re going back and to be fair the choice was both easy and obvious.Continue reading Why We’re Going Back to Barracudas Activity Day Camps
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.
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.Continue reading Visit Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure This Summer
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.Continue reading Summer at Barracudas Activity Day Camps
School’s out for summer and this week marks the start of five weeks of free family-friendly activities at Norwich’s biggest shopping centre, intu Chapelfield. Just be a member of the intu Chapelfield family club.

I love our garden and now it’s summer I love nothing more than sitting out in the evenings and making the most of it. An easy way to create a lovely atmosphere is by adding some lighting to your garden. Solar lighting is the easiest way to do that and I have been sent some fabulous KooPower Solar Lights that I am just obsessed with.Continue reading KooPower Garden Solar Lights

Hello and welcome summer. Last weekend was the hottest day of the year so far, with temperatures soaring to a blissful 28 degrees in some areas. As residents of this fair isle, it’s tradition to celebrate the coming of the sun by stripping down to as few clothes as possible and plonking ourselves down in the nearest patch of greenery with the family; a guaranteed lovely day out for children and adults alike…or is it? Sadly, for more than just a few, a day out in nature in early summer can, in truth, be a nightmare of sneezing, runny noses and itchy eyes…Continue reading ‘Tis the season to be sneezing (and wheezing?)
