Dinosaur Adventure Park, Norwich

Welcome to my new mini series of guest posts for bloggers around Norfolk, the series will be about the great places to visit or events around the local area :)

I hope you enjoy and here is Mummy Est's post of the Dinosaur Adventure, near Norwich, Norfolk.

If you have a ‘dinosaur mad’ child (or in my case, husband) then this summer you MUST visit Dinosaur Adventures. Located close to Lenwade (in between Fakenham and Norwich) this outdoor park has everything you could ask for on a family day out.

Kids Zone Fun Foam Bath Review

Recently we ran out of bubble bath for the kids and what we had previously used was total rubbish, it left a thin layer of bubbles on top and disappeared quickly so it was time for a change!
So we ventured out to our local Home Bargins and decided to pick some new stuff up, now lilli is terrible at deciding on things so I just picked up the nicest smelling stuff I could find and oh my! I found it, and for a bargin price too! At 89p who could grumble.
Kids zone foam bath


Cherry and almond foam bath! And it smelt delicious, so we got home and that night ran a bath, we added the foam bath and lordy Lord it smelt beautiful, the consistency was nice and thick and it made the biggest foamy bubbles I had ever seen from a bubble bath, the bottle also said it was extra kind and gentle so for preschool children it's a brilliant selling point!
