OK so it’s that time of the year. That dreaded time of the year, when parents look to their diaries (and wallets/purses) to plan out activities for their kids, who are now let loose from their restraints of school, and free to roam the world and drag their parents along with them.
Sid is only 2 at the moment, and so my experience of this is quite limited. Much to my satisfaction I must say. That said, he is a very demanding and inquisitive child and always wants things to do to entertain him.
I have found that off all his toys, from the least to the most expensive, his favourite toy is his £2 bubble-gun.
I don’t quite know what it is with kids and bubbles, but my God, Sid loves them.
So over the past 6-8 months, Sang and I have found a few things that are just superb for kids, that don’t quite cost a lot of money, yet provide hours of fun (depending on the age of the little one)
The best we have found for kids up to about 6/7 years old is our local farm, or a local farm.
They are free to get into, have lots of animals in enclosures, and plenty of fresh food to buy. One of my favourite ones is Lizzies Farm and Tea Room in Worcester.
I was taken here by my wife as part of my first fathers day present from Sid, and what an event. It was his visit to a farm, and he was overjoyed at the sight of the lambs, rabbits and the giant bovine.
And what was great for me and the Mrs, they had a lovely little tea room, serving fresh cakes (and what a selection!) and home made sarnies, with fresh pickle, all home made.
