Mister Maker and the Shapes Review

Mister Maker

We are big fans of the cast of CBeebies as the kids have all grown up watching them. We have seen many of them perform live, including, Alex, Andy, Katie, Mr Bloom, the Rhyme Rockets and Sid but one that had eluded us until this year was Mister Maker and we caught our first glimpse of him in the pouring rain at Camp Bestival. His show was full of fun and his infamous sidekicks, the Shapes, were there too. Camp… Continue Reading “Mister Maker and the Shapes Review”

Science Zone is hidden away in the Royal Arcade and the one… Continue Reading “Sebastian’s Dinosaur Party!”

Adventure Golf Fun in Bournemouth with Mighty Claws UK

Mighty Claws UK

Sebastian is dinosaur mad and all the kids love to play adventure (crazy) golf, so when we were invited to the grand opening of Mighty Claws Adventure Golf at Play Bournemouth we couldn’t wait to head over. As soon as we approached the car park, Sebby squealed with excitement that he could see Terence (his name for a T-Rex). We were greeted by a DJ playing some tunes and a crazy dancing dinosaur who could really throw some shapes before… Continue Reading “Adventure Golf Fun in Bournemouth with Mighty Claws UK”
