I’m sure I’m not alone in making excuses that I don’t have time to exercise because I’m busy with the kids!
Since Theo was born (and being honest before too) I’ve not done much in the way of exercise other than walking and a bit of yoga. Certainly nothing that’s raised my heart rate much! So over the last week I’ve set to improve this and do an activity a day with Everyone Active, the UK leading operator of local leisure, gym, swim and activities facilities.
Everyone Active have produced a series of FREE family activity plans as part of their summer campaign, Everyone is Family. We’ve had so much fun doing this and it’s introduced us to both new places and activities.
I haven’t done a monthly what’s on guide in ages but there’s so much fun stuff happening next month in Buckinghamshire and surrounding areas I thought this would be the easiest way to help you plan your month. From sunflower fields to scarecrow trails and pony rides to immersive theatre there’s something for everyone.
Like many of you we’ve found ourselves in a situation this week where we’ve had to isolate after being pinged by the Covid app. So if you find yourself in the same situation here are a load of ideas to help you occupy your toddler. I’ve tried to include lots that encourage independent play in case you are trying to juggle work as well as looking after the kids!
We recently visited Leeds Castle in Kent and had a brilliant day out. Not only is it a beautiful place to visit but it’s incredibly fun and packed full of playgrounds and fun things for the kids.
South Devon has been our favourite destination for a family staycation for many years. In this blog post I’ve shared lots of ideas for days out come rain or shine to help you plan the perfect staycation.
If you’re little one loves their scooter or bike then you have to take them to Oxhey Activity Park! The skatepark has been designed so that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy it. As well as the skate areas there’s also a fantastic play area with loads of great playframes and equipment, ping pong tables and a lovely café.
It was Ashley’s 3rd birthday recently and lots of you have asked me to share what presents we bought her. I’ve put together a gift guide based on what made the final cut, some other ideas that were on our list as well as some of her current favourite toys.
Now that summer has finally arrived and we’re enjoying the sunshine here’s my guide to the best family friendly pubs with play areas. All of the pubs featured in this guide with images next to them I have visited personally and the others have been recommended.
Beale Park is an outdoor wildlife park in Berkshire with loads of fun play areas. We’ve been visiting Beale Park ever since Ashley could walk as it’s brilliant for toddlers! We love it for the miniature railway, animals, paddling pool and the brilliant Little Tikes play area. Recently they’ve been added even more attractions and animals to the park so it’s now even better.
