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. When we have had some dry weather, it’s been great to get out with some handy activities in my back pocket. Thanks to our Paws Outdoors kit from BEAR and The Wildlife Trusts. 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.
I love a bucket list, most of the time I do not write them down. I am one of those people that until the very last moment, everything is an opportunity. Recently I have been thinking about family festivals. We have only experienced this once with the children. It wasn’t a music festival or anything, it was Blogstock. It gave us a little taster of what a bigger festival would be like.
Educational games are extremely popular with parents right now; kids get to enjoy playtime, while their parents rest assured that they are still learning something useful. But even though most of these fun, educational games involve computers and technology, that doesn’t mean that classic children’s games have nothing valuable to teach your children. Granted, some games should be avoided for the sake of keeping peace within the family – Monopoly comes to mind – but there are other classic games that still teach your children timeless lessons.
We visit Drayton Manor every year, it’s amazing how much they grow each year and how much more the kiddies can go on. Last year the children enjoyed the smaller rides and they looked so little too. This year the children could go on a lot more and we had fun going on the big kid rides.
Sports are great. They promote a healthy lifestyle, the exercise makes you happier, and they’re incredibly social (even for individual sports). There are so many sports out there, that there is guaranteed to be one that you love and find exhilarating.
When you take everything into account, going on a ski holiday is not one of the cheaper options out there for a vacation. Think about it: you have to buy/rent various gear, buy tickets for ski lifts, excess baggage charges, etc. Plus that’s all before the cost of traveling and staying at a ski resort!
Canada covers such huge amounts of land. No surprise then that it’s brimming over with stunning natural scenery. You can get everything here from dramatic mountains and cliffs to beautiful valleys and waterfalls. There’s some great territory to explore on foot, by bike and by car. If you’re on holiday in one of the main cities, you’re sure to be within reach of both natural and beautiful – without travelling for hours. Check out some of these top natural wonders that Canada’s got waiting for you.
Are you planning a vacation to Whistler, BC this year? Maybe you are looking for a hotel room for your family to enjoy? Hotels are nice, but why not consider staying in one of the area’s condos? Today, we are going to learn why staying in a condo just might be better for your needs than a hotel room.
Going on vacation is a fun time. It’s your chance to get away from the office and worries of everyday life. You’ve worked hard to earn time off and it’s now your chance to soak up the sun and relax with friends or family.
Saturday 9 July 2017 we went to Go Ape in Thetford, it is based at High Lodge. We love it there and to try out the Junior Go Ape course was an incredible treat. We got there quite early, which meant it wasn’t too busy either. I love Go Ape, we tried the Ally Pally Go Ape course a couple of months ago, the kiddies loved it. So I knew we would all love this course too. It’s the first ever Go Ape!
