Why we love soft play

Why we love soft play

Although it can be my idea of hell, soft play is a great little place for youngsters to flourish. They learn to make friends with other children and to do things like take turns and share. They also get exercise and a space to let go and be as loud and messy as they want. It is a place you get to be a child too and run round chasing them remembering the fun of your youth. It’s somewhere you can go and take a back seat and just sit watching them play and having fun. Where you haven’t got to run round and can just breath for a little bit. As they get older you can watch from further away until they’re big kids and you could have the luxury of a hot drink while they play in peace. (I cannot wait for this day). I

t can be a place to go with other mummy friends while the kids play together you can talk. You get out of the house and you get grown up conversation while your child has a fun experience. I love watching my little guy play and have fun smiling as he realises where he is and runs off to play. I love playing with him and racing him down slides or playing in the ball pit with him and showing him how to use and play with new things. It’s a great activity no matter the weather too, because it means Elijah can keep dry and warm instead of wet at the park on bad weather days. The thing I love the most is that it keeps Elijah healthy and happy and I’m up for anything like that.

My new found love of games.

My new found love of games.

I’m not talking video games here I’m talking more old school games. Games like monopoly, uno and any other board/card game you can think of. As times have gone past I find that nights with family and friends we’ve slowly forgotten about board games and they gather dust till Christmas time. But recently we brought our monopoly to one of our family nights and it’s reignited my family’s love for board games. Now that the sales are on I thought it’s a perfect time to buy some different board games.

We’ve started playing when people come round and when people come to ours as it’s a great way to get to know people and have a friendly bit of competition. You use your brain and enjoy time together instead of becoming drawn to your phone or the tv. I find it really brings everyone together and creates memories that last a long time. So dust of your board games or make your own and get lost in the fun!
