The BFG Dream Jar Trail

Today we went into the West End to attend the premier for the new Swallows and Amazons film. There were lots of things to do before the film started. The children decorated paper hats with lots of glue and glitter. There were photo opportunities like this one.

We thought the film was really good. After it had finished we went looking for the BFG Dream Jar Trail again. We found two, the first in Leicester Square.

A new Lego purchase

We went to Paddington to see Nanny off on her train. We couldn’t resist a photo with Paddington Bear.

Then it was back to Northwick Park to visit Dad in hospital. I don’t think we’ve visited this stop before so it was time to take another photo and cross it off our list.

We delivered a new Lego set to Dad to keep him busy in hospital – the Lego Maze 21305. We can’t wait to see how long it takes him to build.

A morning at KidZania

The children had an Inset Day today so we took ourselves off to KidZania at Westfield London for the morning. It’s an experience for children where they can find our more about different occupations and earn and spend money.

They tried lots of different activities, including being Pilots,

Learned how to be Firefighters

For some of the activities they earned money but mostly they just spent it. They had a lovely time and we can’t wait to go back again soon!
