Our Mermaid Experience with Mayim Mermaid Academy – Bournemouth

Mayim Mermaid Academy

Eliza adores mermaids and one of her highlights of Walt Disney World was meeting Ariel. For the last couple of years she has been asking for a mermaid tail and for Christmas 2016, my friend crocheted her a blanket one which she adores, but she still wanted one she could swim with. In November she got her wish when Planet Mermaid sent her, her very own mermaid tail, complete with a mono fin and a tankini top.

New Drop ‘n’ Go Sessions at Rockreef

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”
