Active family fun


The half term has just finished and the kids are back at school so it is time for me to relax, drink lots of cups of coffee and think back on our fun filled holiday.

It always surprises me that the children have the energy to go to school after being on a break with us as it is usually non stop. This half term has been no exception with our holiday to Wild Rose Country park, a day out bowling, a trip to Beale Park for Matilda Mae’s Welly Walk and then finishing up with a day out at Drayton Manor. All that in just 9 days!

Our day out at Drayton Manor was all thanks to Warburtons who wanted to promote their half and half bread (which we all love) and to get the kids active. I can imagine as the weather had turned colder for this half term break that far too many children were hiding away in their houses rather than exploring the countryside, feeding squirrels and scrunching through leaves.

As a family who love Autumn this is the best time of year for us and going to local country parks to splash in puddles and see the wildlife. I loved the pack that Warburtons had put together and the paper planes went down really well. We have yet to use the water balloons as they may be more of a summer holiday activity, I don’t want frozen kids after all.

We had a fabulous day at Drayton Manor which is somewhere we have never been before. We packed our half and half picnic using the warburtons vouchers we were given. I had Sandwich thins, Hubby had a square wrap and the girls had the bread. It was not too cold although gloves were definitely needed but there was certainly no need to stay inside and we spent many hours enjoying ourselves on the rides and walking around the zoo area.
