Educational Play with Schleich I'm a big fan of learning through play. Unforced educational play. I'm not a teacher and I don't want to be. I want my children to naturally learn whilst they are having fun. When I was contacted recently...

Family Fun at Millets Farm Centre, Oxfordshire!

As the summer (or the British version of it anyway!) draws to a close you might be looking for inspiration for one last family day out before the children head back to school.  Earlier this month I was lucky enough to attend a bloggers event at Millets Farm in Oxfordshire and I think it’s a must visit.
The new maize maze has an ‘Alice In Wonderland’ theme to it that can be best appreciated visually from the sky:
Cool huh?
We ventured around the smallest of the three mazes that make up that design.  Whilst wandering around we had to find five paint pots and dip each of out fingers in there in whatever order we wanted.  Upon exiting the maze we discovered our fortune by comparing out colourful fingers to a chart on the wall.  Apparently I’m very honest – but you all knew that already right?
After that we took a short detour to the merry-go-round – my Mother In Law is a bit of a fan – we headed over to the Pick Your Own.  We’d kindly been given vouchers for strawberries and with these being my Little Man’s favourite fruit it seemed foolish to pass up the chance.  The PYO area is huge and the fruit delicious.  All conveniently grown at a height which means you don’t have to scramble around on the ground we left we three rather full punnets… and Little Man might have helped himself to a couple off the plants!
There is also a farm shop and a garden centre to look around, a small farm zoo and a wood.  Picnic facilities are available throughout and there are also restaurants – which do mighty fine butterfly cakes!
If you’re ever in the area I highly recommend a trip – just make sure you take a flag around with you if you do the bigger mazes.  You could be in there for days otherwise!!
