We as a family do not go away very often, I think its just down to the price or the fact that our parents arent the ones who book the all important tickets for you but now that we are adults its time for us to plan and prep for the up and coming sunny days away in our beautiful world and what better than to do a little run down of all the exciting things you can find when after you’ve done the all important and adult thing which is to book Majorca flights and hotel

 

Palma Aquarium

Housing one of the largest shark tanks in the world, this amazing place is a must if you are visiting with children, we all know how much children love seeing fish float about in the calm and dark of the walkways, its beautiful and educational, with animals from all over our ocean and an incredible collection of marine plant life, the Aquarium itself has one many awards and is one of the islands top destinations for tourists, a must to add to your holiday bucket list.

Located in Magaluf and is the only theme park in Majorca this amazing theme park is full of lots of things to do with the family, from fun splash parks to the exciting Asylum which is for older children only and many many more fun things to do for all the family, open from April to October is a perfect addition to an exciting holiday abroad

Palma Cathedral –

Situated in the city of Palma is this amazing gothic cathedral which over looks the sea and if you are anything like my husband then you would love this amazing piece of history and I know being the photographer in the family would be endlessly snapping away at the beautiful architecture

Caves of Drach – 

If you are up for some exploring then this is the place to go head to Porto Cristo and there you will find the cave, inside the cave itself is Lake Martel which is known for being one of the largest underground lakes in the world, if you would travel by boat across the lake you will find classical music which is played daily at the location. a stunning piece of natural history in the making and a fascinating look at geography.

Keeping the Kids Busy Outdoors in the Summer

When school’s out, all the kids want to do is stay indoors and play with their gadgets. It’s hard not to think of this as a waste though, because summer is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors. You can make this season more fun for them by introducing activities that they can only enjoy when they’re out in the sun.

Outdoor Picnics

Picnics are a great opportunity for children to get some much needed fresh air and learn more about nature. They can also give the entire family a chance to bond.

You can opt to have a picnic in your own garden, but why not take things a step further and plan a picnic in one of England’s beautiful nature spots? The Telegraph’s list of the best UK picnic spots include places like the Quarry Bank in Cheshire and the Beningbrough’s gardens in York, in case you need ideas.

To help get the kids excited for the trip, you can promise to serve them their favourite deserts at the picnic or encourage them to help out with making the picnic.

Water Fight

If you don’t own an inflatable pool, you can host a water fight instead! It’s a fun outdoor activity to keep the family cool on a hot day. Use your garden hoses or sprinklers as playful weapons, or give the kids water guns for them to defend themselves. For a cheaper alternative, you can buy some water balloons. You can even use the games as a creative method for watering your lawn. To ensure that no water goes to waste (and to keep your water bill down), be sure to set a time limit.

Gardening

There are several ways to turn your garden into an interesting area for the kids. For one, you can introduce them to gardening by assigning a space for them to grow their own plants. Kids are naturally curious, so they may love the idea. My children were fascinated by the tomato plants we once attempted to grow. Not only is gardening a great way to try your hand at growing your own food, it’s also a fun summer hobby that can teach children the value of responsibility.

Garden Playground

Why not transform your garden into a playground? If you have logs lying around, you can arrange them as stepping logs for the kids. It’s a simple activity that can teach them balance and coordination. You can also invest in a little playhouse, so that kids can have their own “home” away from home. Screwfix notes the significance of garden playhouses, stating that they can allow a child’s imagination to run wild. You can empower them with their own space, which they can even use as storage for their outdoor toys.

A Scavenger Hunt

Here’s yet another fun game that allows kids to learn about the outdoors. Prepare a treasure hunt for the kids with a promise of a prize afterwards. You can either prepare the list by writing down descriptions of the items, or drawing images of them. The items themselves can be a variety of things and do not have to be nature-related. For instance, The Spruce’s guide on a scavenger hunt includes clues for household items like the garden gnome, grill, and the post box.

These activities can help the kids appreciate the outdoors more. Additionally, they can create lasting childhood memories. Go now and prepare your summer itinerary so that the family can have a summer blast, and a season to remember.

Most parents are a lot more stressed out about what goes on at the school playground, they panic over minor bumps or general injurys but I am a much more of a relaxed ‘whatever’ kind of parent..

I have always been a firm believe in that to avoid tears and a tantrum is to just stand up and brush it off and it has actually helped prevent potential melt downs, I am also one of those people who laugh when something humors happens during a bump, and when you have more than one child its usually caused by either one of them..

Sometimes its both of them together..

Back in 2016, Amelia and Kai had just started going to school together, she had just entered into Reception and he was in year 2, so during the play times at lunch or at break they would still be playing together in the Key Stage 1 playing area of the school, occasionally I would get the trusty red letter home saying either one of them had to have a cold compress on their face/arm/leg and all went into the bin as it wasn’t worth saving.. but the one that DID need saving was this one..

‘Bumped into brother’ 

I couldn’t help but laugh, they both had been running around like headless chickens and collided together and both came home with a note which said the same thing, ‘Bumped into..’ it was a shining moment in our life as a family of more than one child, a humors thing to laugh at and they found it pretty funny too and its now proudly placed onto our fridge as a little reminder of the time two like minded chickens didn’t look where they where going and made mummy laugh.

Have any of your children done things that have just made you laugh? I think I am secretly hoping I am not the only one who cant help but chuckle when a minor accident occurs..

Forever slightly evil..
