Fish Play

Inspired by our visit to the deep and Little Mr’s current obsession with the Octonauts I created a small invitation to play. It’s certainly not one of my best and was cobbled together very quickly but little Mr spent ages playing away.

I made a quick deep blue sea with blue water, a plant intended or our fish tank, some flower heads, a couple of sea creature we purchased yesterday on our visit to the deep and some glitter for extra sparkle.

I turns out today Little Mr was not a fan of the glitter so we had to refill and get rid of the sparkles. I think it was more to do with his Octonauts toys getting covered in glitter.

I also made cut out some fish and let Little Mr work his magic. He created a two beautiful pictures.

The Deep

I love taking both Little Mr and Little Miss out to different places. This week we went to The Deep in Hull. It’s or second time in as many months. We love visiting here as it is extremely buggy friendly and easily manageable on your own with two children. However on this visit my Dad came along too.

We arrived at around 2pm which was an ideal time really as most of the school trips were finishing up and it was quieting own a little. We headed straight for lunch first and managed to bag ourselves the best table over looking the river Humber. Little Mr loves the children’s lunch Boxes here as there seems to be a greater choice to choose from and I am happy as they are a reasonable price too. Me and my dad stuck to the lasagne, good portions and decent food.

Little Mr loved watching the fish his favourite being the sawfish. He was also fascinated by Hulls new arrival, the penguins. There is also a perfect place for preschoolers to let of a little steam towards the end of the exhibits. Little Mr loves. Unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures of him paying a I was busy feeding Little Miss.

We will definitely be heading back soon. Especially as your entrance fee includes entry for the whole year. A definite winner for us, happy kiddies = happy mummy.
