The other weekend we took a family trip with our under 3’s to Legoland at Windsor and I have to say that despite being with the 2 little ones we had a great time. Noah was able to go on many things and there was quite a lot to do for Isla too.

We had an incredible day at Legoland today. Noah loved it and luckily he is just 0.9 metres so he could go on rides which he was over the moon about. His favourite being the scarab ride.
I like to set myself tasks, sometimes they are tiny things and sometimes very large tasks. The Summer Holidays are great as there is no rushing around on the school runs. This usually means I can get more done, as I am around the home a bit more than term time. With that in mind, I have a mini bucket list of things to do in the Summer Holidays around our family home. Some of these tasks would be a fun thing to do with the kiddies too.
Kids love to see how things work and craft their own creations, so building is a fun pastime for parents to share with their little ones to have fun and help them develop. Of course, actual construction and real tools can be dangerous for children, so there are only certain kinds of building activities that would be suitable for playtime. Some games like Jenga focus on structural design and challenge you to build properly to maintain the stability of the blocks. Even without a designated board game or special building materials, kids tend to find ways to build things out of whatever they can find. Thus, to keep their hands out of mischief and give yourselves something cool to do as a family, consider the following seven kinds of building projects that are kid-friendly:
Today it was Daddy day care, I came home to a completely packed car, ready for camping tomorrow. The kids looked like they had had lots of fun at home with Daddy! I captured them comparing Lego Create the World books from Sainsbury’s. They have nearly got all the cards, I think there will be some swapping with friends coming on!
I unleashed the Sharpies with little Isla today and she was really good with them… We coloured in some of her LEGO friends magazine, it was very therapeutic. It was nice to have some mindfulness time with my little lady!
Today was nice and chilled, Noah and Daddy went to football and Isla and I took a walk into town. She had her lamb backpack on which was very cute. She loved choosing all of the toys for her birthday – which consists of: Sylvanian Families Beechwood Hall, Tsum Tsum’s, Disney dolls, Moana dress up outfit and Moana LEGO set. Not much then!
Noah loves sitting in the kitchen and watching cartoons, he has spent time sitting here making Lego and playing with Playdoh – he loves it. It also means that Isla can chill in the lounge with her dolls and teddybears.
We had a lovely weekend, courtesy of our friends, who paid for us all to go to West Yorkshire and spend the weekend together. We had a lovely weekend in the snowy hills of Slaithwaite and the fact it was snowing made the break away extra special. Albeit cold. The barn was absolutely perfect, lots of space and stunning. We had an amazing time out and about, but also inside the barn too.
