Is LaplandUK as magical the second time around?

LaplandUK

Back in 2015 we discovered LaplandUK and by far it was and has been the best Christmas experience we have ever done. This year we were invited back to see if visiting is as magical the second time around. A visit to LaplandUK needs some preparation, but it is all self-explanatory on the website. When you book your tickets you are invited to personalise the experience and enter the names and fun facts about the children e.g what activities they… Continue Reading “Is LaplandUK as magical the second time around?”

Experiencing the magic of Christmas at Marwell Zoo

Christmas at Marwell

Marwell Zoo is one of our favourite days out with the kids. Not only is it full of wonderful animals to see, but the kids love racing around its wide pathways, and testing their climbing skills in their numerous play areas.

Rockreef UK

The kids love Rockreef Climbing Activity Centre on Bournemouth Pier, but the one thing that stopped us attending as often as we would like is that there was nothing for Sebby to do whilst his siblings were climbing. One adult is required to accompany up to a maximum of three children under 16 and the safety briefing with them to become their ‘Clipper’. They are then responsible for ensuring their group are safely clipped in at all times, meaning that… Continue Reading “New Drop ‘n’ Go Sessions at Rockreef”

The Reima’s #millionhoursofjoy Challenge

Mottisfont

As the kids get older, getting them outdoors gets more of a challenge. If your kids are anything like mine, they moan about leaving the house; “just one more level” on their computer game or “do we have to come, it’s boring“. Yet the moment we reach our destination, they are out the car like a shot, running, laughing and using their imaginations to create their very own adventures. Sometimes it is all to easy to stay indoors, but I… Continue Reading “The Reima’s #millionhoursofjoy Challenge”
