Let’s face it… having Such a huge age gap with the girls I was bricking it about the holidays. I have managed to find ways to keep them happy during the holidays and found some gorgeous places to go. None of these places were gifted to me- they were all paid for!
My favourite of all the places to go was-
Adventure Street at Baggeridge- this amazing place is a cute little role play village. It is small and only lets a certain number of people in. So Make sure you book. It has lots of little places such as hairdressers, theatre, police station, bakery, shop and more . The kids loved it and there was even a cafe for parents and children with delicious cakes on offer!!! Check it out at https://adventure-street.co.uk/
We have also headed to CBeebies land- now there are plus points for this but there are also negatives. Let’s go with negatives first- it’s expensive and there are long queues to get in- my advice is book online- it’s way cheaper and use the tickets you have to print to not have to stand in a huge queue!!! The rides are great for everyone from Edith’s age- 7 months to Erin at 7 years old. We did have to queue a long time for some rides but I think that’s one of those things having to do stuff in the 6 weeks holiday! Thankfully the girls were golden and really enjoyed the array of rides including a park area. The food inside was also healthy and not expensive at all so this was a plus.

Another thing we have done is been added to a “book Geocaching” fb page. You can do this wherever you live and it’s a fantastic idea- hide a book with a note saying if you find this book head to “name of fb group” and post a pic of where you re hide it! It’s been fab and Erin and I have been finding books reading them and then re hiding them! Just make sure you hide them in something waterproof!!
Cosford Air Museum- this one is fab we have been loads of times before and it’s an aircraft museum with interactive sections- it’s more for Erin but Edith enjoys looking up at the planes whilst having a wonder around!! Best of all it’s Free!!!!! You just pay for the carpark!

Another one of our favourite places is West Midlands Safari park! Tonnes of animals- a return pass for free and a fair! What more could you want! There’s a very realistic dinosaur section and you can drive around the animals at your speed and feed them! Both of my girls Love it!!!Safari park
One more place I love is the Black Country museum! It’s such a gorgeous place to go and is perfect for a full day out at a great price to learn about history as well as having a great time! Also perfect if you are a Peaky Blinders fan because it was partly filmed there! You can even take a lesson in the Victorian school, drink in the pub and play games outside the church! https://www.bclm.co.uk/
There are many more but I would be here forever!! I will do another post with our other favourites soon!
