A new find – Pinecliff Play Sculptures

Pinecliff, Dorset

This half term we have been on a mission to find new places to take the kids to play. I have found that our local council website is an invaluable tool for listing all the local play areas and although we have ticked almost all of them off the list now we still had Pinecliff play sculptures to explore.

Kidizoom Smart Watch Go Ape Challenge

Over half term we were invited to take part in the Kidizoom Smart Watch Challenge.  From taking photos, videos, telling the time to recording their voice, the device is perfect on the move and we got to put it through its paces whilst having a fun experience at Go Ape! The new Kidizoom Smart Watch is a new and amazing smart watch just for children! It is so easy to use even Eliza (3) can do it as it has an intuitive touch… Continue Reading “Kidizoom Smart Watch Go Ape Challenge”
