Deadly Adventure at Longleat

Isaac turns the grand old age of 6 on 23rd April but had no clue as to what he wanted for his birthday. In the last year he has outgrown CBeebies and moved onto CBBC.  His favourite shows are Absolute Genius and Splatalot with Dick and Dom and the Deadly 60 series with Steve Backshall so my mission was to do something for his birthday with one of these shows. We were ecstatic to find that Dick and Dom were… Continue Reading “Deadly Adventure at Longleat”
