Family Day Out to Kentwell Hall: Tudor Reenactment Fun

We love going on family adventures, especially ones we can learn new things. Today is May Day and to celebrate we went to Kentwell Hall, Long Melford for their re-enactment weekend. It’s a day where they show us life in Tudor times. It was a great opportunity to talk about the differences between time periods,…

Days Out: Our trip to Banham Zoo

It’s half term and I was determined to enjoy the week off with little man. We found a ‘free child’s entry’ voucher for Banham Zoo so headed down for a visit (saving £10.85 per child). The only downside to the voucher is that you can’t book online with it. I had a read on social…

Days Out: Sea Life Centre Great Yarmouth

Today we went to the Sea Life Centre in Great Yarmouth. J has been watching YouTube videos of various sea life centres and was eager to see some Rays. The centre was easy to find and there was easy parking nearby (no parking onsite). A big plus is that it’s right by the beach so…

Days out: Undley Farm Pumpkin Patch, Suffolk

Today we went to Undley Farm for their yearly Pumpkin Patch adventure. This is our fourth year of going and it didn’t disappointment. Each year it seems to get bigger and bigger… Undley Farm is near Lakenheath in Suffolk. It’s easy enough to find with a sat nav and there are signs dotted about. I…

What Is It Like To Visit Legoland With An Autistic Child?

In August 2018 we visited Legoland Windsor as our family holiday. My little boy, J is autistic. Going on days out and over night stays are stressful but we love to do them as they are such great experiences. J loves Lego. We spent a lot of time watching the various Lego movies and Tv…

5 Lego Activities to Amuse Children when Travelling…

We are off to Legoland this week and are very excited about it. However, it does mean a long journey and a stay in a hotel with a 3 year old. So I searched for some ‘connecting blocks’ (in our case for use with lego) themed activities on the Twinkl website… 1. Duplo Mix and…

Days Out for under £20: Planet Laser (Suffolk)

Today was the first proper rainy day we’ve had all summer. It was definitely an ‘indoor day’. Soft play was out of the question as it would be rammed and frankly I didn’t want to pay a fortune. Swimming was the same. So we went to J’s favourite place…Planet Laser. The reason I love Planet…

Days out: Suffolk Super Con 2018…Sci-fi lovers paradise!

We’ve just got back from spending the morning at Suffolk Super Con 2018. This is the first convention J has ever been too but as you know from our post about J’s obsession with Star Wars, we couldn’t miss this! I asked J who he’d like to dress up as. He obviously chose Kylo Ren….

Autism and Festivals: A day out at Strawberry Fair, Cambridge…

Today is one of my favourite days of the year…the first Saturday of June. This means it was Strawberry Fair! I have been to Cambridge’s Strawberry Fair almost every year since I was 18. When I was younger it was all about the music, having drinks with friends and exploring the crafts stalls (including finding…
