An introduction to Ball Hockey Since the children got interested in ice hockey, namely the Leeds Knights, they have found a new sport to play and, if I’m being honest, get addicted to – ball hockey! What is ball hockey? In its simpliest form, ball hockey is ice hockey that is played on ground (rather than ice) and uses a ball rather than a puck. It uses the exact same equipment (apart from the skates!) and whilst there are minor rules that are different, all in all, it is the same game. Ball hockey training One important thing is that there is no fighting and no rough-and-tumble that you asso ..read more

Located just south of Sherwood Forest, about 80 minute drive from Leeds, Wheelgate Park is an ideal day out for primary school aged children.

Yorkshire Museum of Farming – attraction review

4y ago
The Yorkshire Museum of Farming has been the find of 2020 for us. Located in east York, just off the A64, the location is perfect for a day trip, especially with free parking! Heidi wanted to come back the week after going, which suggests it is a good place to visit! Animals As you would expect, the Yorkshire Museum of Farming has a few animals! There aren’t too many animals, but that means there isn’t too much walking!! Most of the animals are small animals, such as chickens, ducks and the like. These are all kept together near the playground. The star of the show is the bantam who Heidi has ..read more

Puttstars located in The Springs in East Leeds opening in mid-2020 and is an indoor adventure golf course and entertainment complex.  With ample free parking, and located amongst a retail park, there are lots to offer. Puttstars – Golf Puttstars has 3 courses, each of which are 9 holes long. As you can imagine, as the complex has just opened, the courses are of excellent quality.  There are none of those annoying rips in the carpet and as it is all inside, you don’t need to worry about the wind and rain!! The golf courses are of a decent difficulty for all, but for the smaller kids ..read more

Located about 30 minutes away from Scarborough and Filey, on the A64, the Great Yorkshire Maze is perfectly located for people staying on the North Yorkshire Coast.  The location is also perfect if you are planning a stop-off on the way to coast from West Yorkshire, or the way home. Please note that it is open until 6th September 2020. What about the mazes at The Great Yorkshire Maze? There are 2 mazes – one massive one, and a child-friendly one where you can’t get lost!!  For the main maze, you get a helpful map and along the way, there are 11 questions which spell out a word.  ..read more

Clifford’s Tower is one of the most iconic landmarks in York, but what is it actually like inside? With our English Heritage membership, we have been a couple of times and it only felt right to write about it!! What is at Clifford’s Tower? The facilities are quite sparse at Clifford’s Tower. After all, it is a about a thousand years old and they didn’t really think about baby changing facilities in those days!! Family day out at Clifford’s Tower In the basic form, Clifford’s Tower involves climbing up 2 or 3 stories of stairs to see the view of the city of York. It is true tha ..read more

For those who have been following the blog, you’ll know that we are big fans of the Rainbow Factory. One main reason is the close-up nature of their shows and general activities. The 2019 festive show “Jingle the Elf’s Fairytale Fiasco” is no different. No Spoilers! It is always difficult doing a review of a show because you don’t want to give any of the plot away! However, Jingle the Elf’s Fairytale Fiasco is loosely based around a cheeky elf who steals Santa’s sleigh to try to make up for the bad things she has done. She then goes to a number of well known fairy tale characte ..read more
