The London Transport Museum

We came into London as Auntie Caca was on her way back home and thought we would go and have some fun at the London Transport Museum. They always run really good events during the summer so we knew we would find lots to do.

The children wanted to do the Stamper trail which involves collecting a large green ticket and running around the museum collecting 13 stamps at various points. They love to do this and we’ve been so often I always think they will remember where each station is, but they never do. The Stamper trail is also a great way to ensure you see the whole museum and as we were going round we noticed that a craft session was about to start.

Crafting is our favourite thing so we headed over to the Creative Make and Take Workshop. Inspired by the Mr. Men in London book we were able to make our own Mr Men hats. The volunteers were really helpful and Mr Big Brother and Miss Little Sis soon made their own hats with the help of lots of sticky tape.

Creative Make and Take WorkshopsThey were both really good at cutting out the different parts and Big Brother even made some bandages for his Mr. Bump hat.

Creative Make and Take WorkshopsThey loved their hats and were happy to wear them around the Museum and all the way home.

The Museum is also running a fun Mr Men trail through the Museum which we reviewed earlier this year.

More information about family events at the London Transport Museum can be found on their website. Kids go free but adult admission costs £16 which gives free entry for a year.

Inside Out

Guess what we saw at the cinema today?

IMG_3783We loved the latest Pixar film Inside Out, it’s brilliant and very funny and a little sad too.

After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house, and school.

The film was preceded by a Short called Lava which was just as good as the feature film. Inspired by the isolated beauty of tropical islands and the explosive allure of ocean volcanoes, Lava is a musical love story that takes place over millions of years. The music is very catchy and I’ve been humming it all day :)

Northala Fields

We managed to squeeze in a visit to Northala Fields before yet another birthday party invitation for Big Brother. This time we took Daddy’s new sailing boat for a few turns on the boating lake pond. It was very windy but it stayed upright.

We also took the children’s cars so they could race them on the rough ground. We noticed a lovely new children’s park being built so hopefully that will be finished by the next time we visit.
