Stratford upon Avon

Hey readers,
At the weekend we went out for a family day out to Stratford upon Avon. We chose there specifically as they had a attraction called Jungle Town located inside a garden centre. Here at Jungle Town they had a play area in one big room split up into several themed rooms. For example there was a room designed as a shop with  tills, shopping trolleys and food. Whereas another room was a construction room with a toy cement mixer, super large foam bricks and a builders work table. Alternatively, there was the home section with a dolls house, all the necessary cleaning tools and  the babies sleeping on their toy cot.
My boys loved playing here and it was great that the kids were allowed to get in and be free to do what they wanted to do. It was fantastic at stimulating little ones imaginations whilst playing along with others.
Surprisingly the children got on really well playing together and hardly any arguments were witnessed. It is amazing when you put little ones in a group together they just get along most of the time playing happily.
There were benches for adults as well which was great for a break as the play area was secure with a locked door. This gave parents peace of mind  knowong that the place was safe. This allowed time if you wanted for your children to think independently and have the freedom to explore what they wanted if they wished without  the adults being permently at their side.

We stayed for an hour and half and that was more then enough time for my sons to check each area out and not get too tired.
As we left the place we were hitting mid-day so therefore we hunted down an eatery. We went to a lovely cafe that served beautiful fish and chips. I definitely recommend visiting the Riverside Café if you are in the area. The fish, I had was haddock which was so light and fresh  with the chips bring crispy but soft on the inside. For my taste and the boys that was perfect.
My husband is quite a slow eater and I am quite a fast eater. But my eldest he is grazer. Therefore didn’t take too long to finish his dinner so thought it was best to take him out for a walk before before any. mayhem  was caused.
I decided to go for a walk with my eldest boy. The café is just on the river front of the river Avon so had lovely scenery to go for a walk along there. We even went on an old wind up boats which my son loved as it was something different to experience.

That helped burn some of my sons energy so we headed home as it was quite damp and it already had been a long day. Is amazing how much energy you use up as parents going out with toddlers, haha!
