I’ll keep today’s post short as I realise they’re getting longer and longer!
Number of daytime nappies: zero
Number of accidents: 1 in the soft play
She still seems to only be able to take herself to the potty when she’s naked on the bottom half so trips out involve potty trip timings and she’s very good at happily sitting down and doing a wee straight away. If the weather was warmer she could probably go commando in a skirt! We’ve been lugging the potty around in a little carrier bag and we usually just take it into the nearest toilet, or failing that find a corner and empty it into a bush nearby! She’s getting a bit better at pulling her trousers up and down but still needs help.
Our trip out from the caravan today was a visit to Heads of Ayr Farm Park just south of Ayr, Scotland. This was free for the tiddler and £10.50 per adult. I was joking that the tiddler would get more fun out of it than us… I was wrong!
As well as the usual farm animals, there were also monkeys, racoons, meerkats, to name just a few. The playground was in a sandpit and had little and large pirate climbing boats with slides, a plank, nets, wobbly bridges. There were lots of trampolines, 3 huge bouncing ‘pillows’, little and large go karting tracks, a water tyre ride.
The main highlights for the tiddler were the tunnels in the huge ‘castle’ (which also had a climbing wall, slide and stunning views over to the sea) and ‘Digger Land’. Some of the diggers had slides coming off, and the little manual diggers could be operated to pick up sand.
We then found more slides coming down a little hill with views across the sea and an adrenaline rush tyre ride for bigger kids (and adults!!) There was a welly throw, a newly opened indoor soft play and sensory area next to the slide park. This had wavy slides, sack rides and big drop adrenaline slides.
Sorry I said this wasn’t going to be too long today but I’ve got to tell you about the toddler soft play. There was a farm theme with a mini animal roundabout, an air pressured ball shoot where you put the balls in the mouth of a cow ‘ ‘feed me’ and they shoot through the tubes in the cow and come out the ‘poo’ hole! I had fun with air jets to hover the balls from the ball pit and the tiddler enjoyed the usual climbing frames and slides.
I’ve not even mentioned the other activities indoors like the electric diggers, combine harvester climbing frame with a tube slide and tunnels and pet animal area. All in all more than enough to fill a fantastic day out to entertain a wide variety of ages (even adults!) indoors and outdoors!
