DIY Outdoor Letter Line

DIY Outdoor Letter Line

Our garden is becoming quite a learning environment. What with our garden fence counting string, number wall, water wall and  mud kitchen we are utilising the garden fence panels well. We realised we didn’t have anything literacy based so it was time for a DIY Outdoor Letter Line. I bought two pool noodles from PoundLand. They obviously had to be yellow and green as they are the colours of Daddy’s favourite football team. Using a sharp knife I cut the pool noodles into sections. I wrote the capital letters of the alphabet on the alternate coloured pool noodles...
Easy To Make Water Bombs

Easy To Make Water Bombs

We were very excited to get our hands on a copy of 101 Kids Activities That Are The Bestest Funnest Ever! by Holly Homer and Rachel Miller. We are huge fans of their Kids Activities Blog and knew the book would be amazing. The book promises “time-tested, exciting activities to keep your children laughing and learning for the whole day, every day” and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Over the summer the first activity we tried was how to make a water bomb. With hot days and three children to entertain it seemed the perfect activity. It was cheap too. Using...
I am Super Capes

I am Super Capes

As soon as I heard about the work of I am Super Capes I knew we had to get involved. Claudia, founder of I am Super Capes states “every child deserves to be a Superhero, no matter who they are, where they live, whatever they are going through.  That is why I Am Super capes was born.  We are wanting to send capes to these children.  To help light up their imaginations, to give them a moment of respite from what is around them.  To give them the POWER to be children!” Here at Adventures of Adam we wanted to help Claudia on her mission so created our own Super...
Edible Artwork

Edible Artwork

It’s been a long time since I’ve made edible artwork. The last time was with a class of Reception children. You can imagine the smell of 30 pieces of bread toasting! I had planned on doing the activity with Adam hence we used soya milk due to his milk intolerance. As we were at Nana’s house he was more interested in running around her garden. Instead my nephew, Stevie, joined me. Setting up the activity is very quick. Stevie added the food colouring to the soya milk and used a paint brush to stir the two ingredients. Unfortunately I was running low on...

Vita Coco Kids Drink Review

Vita Coco Kids Drink Review

As well as being a fussy eater, Adam is also a fussy drinker. At the moment he will only drink watered down soya milk (he has a cows milk intolerance). I am always on the look out for new things to try so when Vita Coco Kids asked if we would like to sample their kids drinks I jumped at the chance. The winning factor was that the Vita Coco promised their drinks have 20% less sugar than other popular drinks on the market. Vita Coco wowed us immediately with the parcel that arrived. No doubt the box will be featuring in a toddler play activity soon! The drinks come in two...
Dinosaur Adventure Park

Dinosaur Adventure Park

With Adam developing a love of dinosaurs we thought it was the perfect time to take him to the Dinosaur Adventure Park. It is located in Lenwade between Norwich and Fakenham. After waiting a while in the queue to get in we were surprised how big the park was. It was voted Norfolk’s best large visitor attraction in 2013 with over 100 acres of wood and parkland. After playing on  a slide and unearthing a dinosaur fossil in the large sand pit, we discovered the tribes and creatures on the Neanderthal Walk before we reached the Secret Animal Garden. There were...

Video of our Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge

It still hasn’t sunk in yet what an achievement it was for us to complete the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. We hadn’t appreciated how tough the 25 mile walk would be especially as our bodies are not used to hills let alone peaks. It is now laughable looking at the ‘slopes’ we were training on in flat Norfolk. We would have been better off completing 336 miles walking up the stairs in my house! Walking up Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough I thought of how many positive changes there have been to my life as a direct result of suffering from Hyperemesis...
Ingleborough – Yorkshire 3 Peaks

Ingleborough – Yorkshire 3 Peaks

After the trials of Pen-y-ghent and Whernside we had competed 17 miles of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks and had been walking for just under 9 hours. However, we still had a further 8 miles left in the form of Ingleborough. As we set off passing The Old Hill Inn Kieran, our guide from The Lake District Walkers, advised us to look the other way to avoid seeing the pub garden full of people who’d already completed the walk!  We climbed over a wall to cross fields of soggy grass which were bliss for our aching feet and legs. A stone slabbed path took us through an area of...
