Days Out and Fun Things for 2015!

January might be the gloomiest month of the year but I'm already making plans for some exciting days out - ones that don't rely on good weather obviously! It got me thinking about where else I'd like to visit - wonder how many of these we can tick off our list before 2016!

The Natural History Museum
The most obvious choice for a dinosaur geek like Elliot! He's a massive fan of Andy's Dinosaur Adventures on CBeebies and I keep saying we'll take him there one day. The only problem is, I think he might expect to see Andy racing down the hallway! I know the museum gets very very packed so this is definitely one we'll be doing on a week day.

Drayton Manor - Thomas Land
A few friends have visited here and said how good it was so I definitely want to try and visit. Elliot loves trains so I know this will go down very well with him!! It's a 3 hour drive from where we live so we'd probably make a long weekend out of it - any excuse!

Alton Towers - CBeebies Land
Another theme park but how much fun does CBeebies Land sound for a toddler?! Featuring rides and attractions based around some of the characters including a Something Special Sensory Garden, an In the Night Garden magical boat ride and a Tree Fu Tom Training Camp. I'm not sure who would be more excited, me or Elliot!!

Just For Tots @ Butlins
Last year we enjoyed a little holiday at Butlins Minehead on one of their Just for Tots short breaks. Everything is geared up for under 5's including early starts, repeated shows, early discos and "celebrity" appearances from the likes of Mike the Knight and Bob the Builder and his gang. We LOVED it!! Elliot had so much fun and we can't wait to go again. (We've already booked for May so watch out for a blog post soon after!)

The Cinema!
We were quite excited to hear that Peppa Pig has a brand new episode (The Golden Boots) which is being shown in cinemas along with some other favourite episodes. This will be Elliot's first trip to the cinema and I can't wait!! He goes into a bit of a trance when he watches Peppa so I hope this means he will sit still for the whole hour ;)

Wimborne Minister's Model Town
This might sound like a bit of an odd choice but imagine being 2 years old and running through a little town like you're a giant!! I've also just spotted on their website that they also have a model railway - another plus point for a train mad toddler!

These are just a few things on our to do list but I also hope we get to have lots more fun in and around our local area. We have so much on our doorstep like some amazing beaches and so will definitely making the most of these!
