This summer holiday has been so spontaneous, mostly due to the wet weather we have had. It’s meant that any grand plans have changed last minute, including holidays.

BEAR are all about getting the little ones out and about with nature. So they teamed up with The Wildlife Trust to make sure our cubs have lots of fun things to do.
We recently went away with a family who had an older child, not quite teens but it made me think about what can do over the coming years to stop the dependency on devices.

Fortunately, there are ways to prevent your kids from getting too dependent on this phenomenon. Here are some alternate activities you can get your teens involved in.
On Mothers Day we managed to get out in the local park for an hour or so, usually we either rush around the park with the dogs or we go somewhere else.

On Saturday we took a little trip to Norfolk to try out BeWILDerwood, we drove past it everyday when we stayed at Hall Farm Cottages in Ludham and we have been desperate to go since then. The weather looked dry and mild on Saturday so we knew it was the right time to go. BeWilderwood is in Hoveton, very near Wroxham, it’s a lovely area if you are planning a holiday as there is so much to do.
