Exploring The Gruffalo Spotters Trail At Wendover Woods

A family took a stroll through the deep dark Wendover Woods… If you can forgive me for butchering one of the (probably) most famous opening lines in children’s book history, then let me share our recent adventure in search of The Gruffalo. Toddler L loves all things Gruffalo. We read the book – and Gruffalo’s Child – […]

Review: Water Babies Toddler Swimming Lessons (Chapter 7)

It only feels like the other day, but it was actually a year ago that I last wrote a specific review about our Water Babies swimming lessons. At that time, we – or should that be Toddler L – had completed Chapter 4 and was having an absolute blast in the pool. As tends to happen with […]

Cooking With Ella’s Kitchen At Waitrose Cookery School For Little Foodies

A few weeks ago, I did something pretty cool. As part of the ‘Little Foodies’ campaign – which is a partnership between Ella’s Kitchen and Waitrose designed to get shoppers prepping, cooking and exploring healthy food for their little ones – I got to visit Waitrose Cookery School. Not only that, but I watched a proper chef cook […]

7 Toddler-Friendly Things To Do On Holiday In Copenhagen

It feels like ages ago now, but last September we had a short European city break to Copenhagen. I’ve been meaning to write about the holiday for a while as we had a great time and found it to be a very toddler-friendly place, however, life and general laziness got in the way. Typical. So eight […]

Review & Giveaway: Willows Activity Farm & Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground

The other week, we were invited along to Willows Activity Farm to celebrate a special event. As it was the one year anniversary of the Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground opening, there was a bit of a birthday party happening. A hoppy birthday party, if you will. I know, that’s awful. Sorry. To try to redeem myself […]

Review: Our Tiny Knights Midweek Break At Warwick Castle

As a family always keen to find new places to visit and explore, I was chuffed to be asked to be a blogging ambassador for Warwick Castle during 2017. I’ve only ever been there once before – back in 2006 ish when the missus and I were fresh faced, less grey and enjoyed copious amounts […]

Things To Do With A Toddler In Dacorum, Hertfordshire And Buckinghamshire

Since becoming a stay-at-home dad nearly two years ago, I’ve found that my days are pretty different to the pre-kid days. Hardly surprising, I know. But what this has meant is that I’ve needed to tap into a whole different world of baby and toddler related activities that I never knew about before. As a […]

Review: A Magical Christmas Experience At LaplandUK

The other weekend, we were invited along to celebrate all things Christmas at LaplandUK. Set in a forest near Ascot, it’s an award winning Christmas family theatrical experience which recreates Santa’s arctic homeland. With elves, reindeer, festive activities, a snowy village and a meeting the big man himself, it certainly sounded like a magical experience. […]

Review: Drayton Manor Magical Christmas 2016

I’m going to mention the ‘C word’. No, not that one, I’ll save that for a different post. I’m obviously talking about Christmas. As we approach the end of November, we’re a little over a month away from the day that Santa breaks into our houses like the petty thief he is. He may bring […]
