A day out at Legoland Discovery Centre, Birmingham

The girls have been really eager to go to the new LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Birmingham, so when we told them we were going to be annual pass holders they were delighted. They really adore going to Sea Life Centre, as regular readers of my blog will know, so being able to go to LDC just across the canal is super exciting for them – we’ll be able to do both in one day quite often, especially with LDC having a nice little cafe inside with a decently priced kids meal deal.… Continue Reading “A day out at Legoland Discovery Centre, Birmingham”

Free Christmas printables – Memory Game

Today’s freebie is this fun memory game – I created this back at the beginning of the month and the girls have been ‘testing’ it for me since. This one is pretty good for the Christmas holiday as it isn’t once and done – they can play it a few times over the school break. It has 15 different festive images, on 30 ‘cards’ you… Continue Reading “Free Christmas printables – Memory Game”
