Fun Summer Holiday Activities The Whole Family Will Enjoy

The summer holidays are here, and it can be difficult to find things to do for the entire six weeks that all the family will enjoy.
Even if you break it up with a holiday somewhere, you’ll still be faced with endless cries of ‘I’m bored!’ and the need to get out of the house. 
Rather than focusing on just child-friendly activities, why not try activities that are suitable for the whole family so that parents can have some fun too. Here are some great suggestions for fun summer activities for families.

The new ways to watch films

Inevitably, you’ll be faced with some rainy days, and when the TV becomes too much, or you feel like you just need to escape for a few hours, there’s always the cinema.
Cinema has come a long way in recent years with films being a much more immersive experience. 
You can choose from 3D, IMAX, superscreen and even incredible 4DX as a more exciting way to watch a film and make it a more shared experience. 
On dry days, you can take a look at outdoor cinema screenings near you that are a great excuse to take a picnic and some blankets and enjoy classic movies outside.

Go-karting

Some of the most fun family activities are the ones that pit you against each other - and go-karting is one of them! 
While the kids are still too young to drive, go-karting is a great experience to get them behind the wheel, and it can be fun to race together as a family and enjoy the adrenaline rush. 
GoKart tracks often have special deals on during the summer to make it a more affordable activity for the whole family to enjoy. If you’re stuck for kids birthday party ideas too, this is one that goes down well with kids of all ages.

Theme parks

This is another great suggestion for something that the whole family can enjoy, especially as the kids get older and can go on all of the rides. 
There are always great vouchers around now for 241 entry so that the cost can be quite minimal, and if you’re armed with the right theme park survival tips, you can make sure you have a great day out together.
If you’re not going on holiday this year, this is a fun way to enjoy your staycation and add some excitement to the summer holidays.

Invest in a paddling pool

Paddling pools are great for both kids and adults, and they have caused a bit of a stir after supermarkets begun slashing their paddling pool prices.
A paddling pool is a great thing to invest in for the summer and can be brought out whenever the temperatures begin to go up for a fun activity that’s close to home and won’t break the bank.

Plotting out an entire summer holiday full of activities can be difficult, and costly, but there are plenty of other great suggestions for keeping the kids occupied during the summer, that you might want to look at. 
Here’s hoping for a great summer filled with good weather and fun!

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
