我将如何度过闲暇时光£100

TSB Plus帐户 刚满一岁,并且因为您一年内从该帐户赚取的最大利息是£100(最高为5%的AER£2000),我被要求去考虑我将如何做一个备用£100.我不太擅长花费自己收到的额外资金,通常只是存入联合银行帐户或用于抵押。拥有一些我可以花在通常预算之外的东西上的钱真是太好了。

我的想法立刻转向了我们 避暑别墅。我最近在博客上写了我对该空间的一些计划,却没有花任何钱,但事实是,只要花一点钱,我就可以使它成为花园中一个非常可爱的地方。目前,它的状态还不错,但确实需要进行一些整理:

花园里的老避暑别墅

当然,从任何项目开始的第一个地方都是Pinterest板,这是到目前为止我已经提出的一些想法:

在Pinterest上关注Jennifer Jain的董事会Summerhouse灵感。

Many of these are way out of my budget, but there are a few elements that I think I could incorporate. I'd probably spend a good chunk of the money on some paint, or 在 least some kind of protective sealant 对于 the walls 和 decking area to make it look a little smarter. 的 old pots that are outside could really do with updating, I'd love to have some bright, colourful planters filled with flowers in all different colours. I think it could also do with some outdoor decoration, in particular I'm thinking some bunting strung up across the front, bird feeders 和 perhaps a windchime.

蝴蝶手机

内部看起来已经很多彩了,但是真正需要的是一些柔软的家具,使它更加舒适。我会买一些漂亮的方格布做窗户的小窗帘,也许还可以搭配扶手椅的垫子。说到家具,一个小书架会很可爱,还有一些小桌子可以用来喝点饮料和一些零食。

的 floor is currently covered with an offcut of carpet, but I'd love to have some decent flooring in there, 和 maybe a pretty mat or a rug. Or perhaps even some artificial grass, 对于 when it's too wet to sit on the grass outside!

如果我真的能献身的话会不会很可爱£100到我的项目!绝对值得节省,以便您可以随着时间的流逝而获得回报,就像其他随着时间而改进的事物一样:

2015年Ram伦敦马拉松

到目前为止,我们的生活分为“马拉松之前”和“马拉松之后”。 内存去年9月发现,在几次不成功的申请之后,他已经通过选票获得了席位。此后,我们立即休假,所以他从11月开始接受适当的培训。这是一条陡峭的学习曲线,需要购买许多新的跑步装备和设备,更不用说训练和当天所需的所有不同片剂和凝胶了。

拉姆在马拉松比赛前一天晚上住在伦敦,我隔夜住在父母在霍舍姆(Horsham)的家中,周日没有孩子陪伴他。我花了数周的时间担心这个问题,不顾一切地寻找一个我可以看得见他的地方,但又对一大群人感到焦虑,并可能花一天时间追逐他,但每次都想念他。幸运的是,在网上朋友的帮助下,我得以整理出一条令我满意的临时路线,Ram的姐姐和她的伴侣也度过了一天,这使一切变得容易了很多。

我在9英里前的Rotherhithe开始新的一天,距离加拿大水站仅几步之遥。当我到达时,这里很安静,我在前面找到了一个地方,尽管很快有人挤满了人。我及时看到了男子精英选手,紧接着又是大众起步最快的选手,包括宝拉·拉德克利夫(Paula Radcliffe)和简森·巴顿(Jenson Button)。

的 London Marathon 2015

我知道过了一段时间,Ram才找到了我,但是我仍然通过他的电话迷恋他(不幸的是,伦敦马拉松赛的官方应用并不是一整天都在为我服务!)。幸运的是,当他出现时,人群已经变得稀疏了,因为我目不转睛地看着所有跑步者过去了!很高兴见到他,而且他似乎过得很好!

的 London Marathon 2015

的n we cut across to the mile 11 point, again busy but getting quieter, 和 we made it to the front as other people saw their runners go by 和 moved away, 和 we were able to catch a glimpse of him. 的n our plan was to head to Canary Wharf, but announcements 在 Canada Water were warning about large crowds 和 I was worried about being stuck across the river, so instead we headed to Shadwell, where the route doubles back on itself 对于 quite a while. We just missed 内存 在 the halfway point, 和一个s he headed to Canary Wharf himself I lost contact with him as his phone battery died. We realised we wouldn't see him again 对于 a little while, so headed off to find some lunch.

弄清楚他接下来要去哪里比较困难,所以我们沿着从Shadwell到Tower Hill的路线走去,发现自己位于23英里处,可以俯瞰伦敦塔风景。我们在这里待了很长时间,拼命地寻找我们认识的独特跑步者,并希望他能早日康复。

Fortunately we managed to spot him, although he was so absorbed in the run that he nearly missed us! I wasn't able to grab a photo of him as we were too busy yelling 在 him so that he saw us, but it was lovely place to stand 和 watch! 的 runners were looking pretty tired by this point but the crowd was really cheering them on, most of the runners had their names across their tops so you could cheer them individually.

的 London Marathon 2015

拉姆看上去也很累,但跑起来不错,我知道他会做到的。我们从23英里一直走到圣詹姆斯公园,并尽可能沿着马拉松路线走。许多跑步者都在此时行走,当人们驶向终点时,人群真的沿着障碍物稀疏了。我们最终不得不走了比我们预期的多一点的距离,几乎在与Ram相同的时间到达了集合点。他看起来不错,并且完全嗡嗡作响。后来我们发现他的正式时间是5时30分,这让他感到非常满意,而且他在这段时间内一直保持运转,真是太神奇了!

的 London Marathon 2015

我们直接回到我的父母那里,停下来准备一个外卖比萨饼,收集了那些被我妈妈照顾得很好的孩子,然后开车回家。这是一个美好的一天,尽管这不仅使跑步者感到疲倦(我们的支持者白天步行了12公里,没有太多吃喝玩乐!),而且成功地摆脱困境还是很大的缓解,我觉得我们可以现在恢复正常生活!我们都为他感到骄傲!

贝克·罗斯的夏季工艺品

夏天快到了,贝克·罗斯(Baker Ross)提供了各种各样的手工艺品,让孩子们忙碌起来!作为贝克罗斯(Baker Ross)博客网络的成员,我会定期收到一整套手工艺包和用品。这是我们如何处理新夏季工艺系列中的一些最新物品的方法。

的 Kaleidoscope Scratch Art Hanging Decorations are a simple idea, but I was very impressed with them. We were visiting friends 和 so I took a pack around 对于 all the 孩子们 to do together. 的 kits were perfect to take along as they contain everything that you need, 和 don't create any mess. 的 younger 孩子们 loved how easy it was to scratch out a design on the black to reveal the colours underneath, 和 Harry in particular spent ages on his creations, as well as being fascinated by the process. 贝克·罗斯 offer a huge range of different Scratch Art sets in all different shapes 和 designs 和 they really are brilliant 和 much easier than trying to replicate the idea yourself, which we have tried 和 failed to do!

接下来我们用 荧光彩砂填充一些 动物砂艺术瓶。这是孩子们从未见过的事情,他们着迷了。这组瓶子带有一个小漏斗,您可以将其放入瓶子的盖子中,然后依次倒入不同颜色的沙子。哈利自己就能做到这一点,米娅很满足于让我知道她想使用哪种颜色,并在我倒入颜色时观看。这并没有像我预期的那样混乱,两个孩子爱它。成品瓶在窗台上看起来真的很漂亮。即使装满了这些瓶子,彩砂也走了很长一段路,下面的沙画艺术工艺品还剩下很多。

接下来,我们装饰了一些 侏儒Suncatcher赌注。为了装饰它们,我们使用了贝克·罗斯在上一个盒子中收到的闪光瓷器和玻璃笔,它们已经用于后来的几种工艺,它们仍然运转良好,我记得这次把报纸放到桌子上了!由于他们专注于自己的设计,因此桩中的着色使他们两个人在很长一段时间内保持安静。

贝克·罗斯的夏季工艺品

回到有色的沙子,我们制作了一些《 Sand 和 Glitter Art Picture Sheets》。绝对是夏天的手工,因为最好在花园里做!

贝克·罗斯的夏季工艺品

的 top layer is pre-cut 和 you peel it back to reveal a sticky surface underneath. You simply remove the paper from the area that you want to colour, then sprinkle the sand over the sticky paper, rubbing it down with your fingers so that it is stuck securely. 的re is actually very little wastage of coloured sand (although enough that I was glad we'd done it outdoors!).

Harry was able to get on with this entirely by himself. At first I wasn't sure about letting Mia loose with the bottles of sand 和 I sprinkled it on 对于 her, but she actually surprised me with her control over it, 和 she loved choosing her colours. 的 both really enjoyed making their pictures 和 were so proud of them, the colour of the sand is really vibrant 和 it stuck brilliantly. We'll be using these gorgeous pictures to decorate our 避暑别墅 with!

贝克·罗斯的夏季工艺品

最后,他们各自装饰了一个陶瓷城堡硬币银行。我们没有任何瓷笔或油漆,因此我们仅使用海报漆作为基础层,然后用丙烯酸漆和闪闪发光的海报漆进行装饰,效果非常好。

与往常一样,我们的贝克罗斯(Baker Ross)工艺产品充满了乐趣。我认为它们的价值超乎寻常,您可以找到几乎可以想象到的任何主题为主题的手工艺包,以及价格合理的基本手工艺品。

我是Baker Ross 博客s网络的成员,收到了这些产品。

评论-迪士尼灰姑娘少年ReadyBed

在过去的几周中,Mia一直在审查 迪士尼灰姑娘Junior ReadyBed,一个适合幼儿的多功能睡袋和床。

评论-灰姑娘ReadyBed为幼儿

我不能完全描述米娅打开盒子时有多激动。像许多小女孩一样,她喜欢迪斯尼公主,无论在哈利的房间还是我们探望家人时,她都喜欢过夜。她还对将小推车和泰迪熊躺在床上有些迷恋,我们为他们散布了很多毛毯和枕头,它们遍布整个房子。 

评论-灰姑娘ReadyBed为幼儿

当我们向她解释说这个ReadyBed是她自己的小床,她可以随身携带任何东西时,她感到非常兴奋,迫不及待地想晚上把它吸起来并安排在哈利的房间过夜。整个下午,她度过了一段愉快的时光,读了一个小故事,把她塞在床上,睡前到了,她就跳了进去,睡得很香!

评论-灰姑娘ReadyBed为幼儿

的 ReadyBed has its own little pump, which is very handy 和 fits neatly inside the bag when packed away. It only takes a few minutes to blow up the bed. 的 bed comes with a built in pillow which seemed pretty comfortable although Mia did like using her own pillow with the bed. 的 entire bed folds away neatly into the integrated carry case, 和 the built in cover can be easily removed 对于 washing, very important 对于 those younger toddlers that can't quite be trusted overnight!

评论-灰姑娘ReadyBed为幼儿

I know that we are going to find the ReadyBed very useful when we go visiting family overnight. We'll be spending a night 在 my Mum's this weekend, 和 Mia is adamant that she's going to be sleeping in her 'Princess bed'. It doesn't take up too much space to pack, or too much room on the floor once it's out. I'm also thinking that it's going to be useful 对于 her if we manage to spend a night or two in a tent in the 花园 this summer. 的 cover is a little thin, so it would probably need an extra blanket if it was going to be used outdoors in a tent.

我可以看到,在学校放假期间,ReadyBed床将成为Harry屋子里的永久固定物,因为两个孩子都喜欢“过夜”!米娅在哈利的房间里过夜非常成功,她睡得很香,睡着了所有的泰迪熊。当她大一点,也许自己在朋友家过夜时,它将成为一张很好的熟悉的床,她可以随身携带。

评论-灰姑娘ReadyBed为幼儿

的 ReadyBed Junior is suitable 对于 孩子们 aged 3+, 和 I can see that Mia will definitely still be using it in a few years time - Harry 在 6 easily fits in. 的 迪士尼灰姑娘Junior ReadyBed 是2015年的新产品, 星球大战少年准备就绪,此外,还有许多其他ReadyBed可用,它们具有不同的字符和设计,以及不同的尺寸以适合各个年龄段的孩子。

的 Cinderella Junior ReadyBed has an RRP of £29.99,可在Tesco Direct和Asda购买。我们收到了ReadyBed,以换取此评论。亚马逊链接是会员。

您的花园如何生长?

每年大约在这个时候,我都会兴奋地发表一篇帖子,详细介绍我的夏季大花园计划。实际上,我已经从今年开始了,上面有一篇关于我对我们所做的工作的帖子 避暑别墅. 的 trouble is that I do struggle a bit in the 花园, the 孩子们 aren't particularly interested in helping me 和 they aren't always the best 在 occupying themselves while I get on with things. It's much easier now that I can trust them enough to turn my back on them 对于 a few minutes 在 a time, but I still find it difficult to carve out a decent amount of time to get something done.

去年夏天末,我有点懒惰,从来没有适当地清理过我们的蔬菜。它藏在我们车库的后面,所以我从房子里看不到它,很容易忽略。所以几个月以来,我一直忘了这个,潜伏着:

花园如何成长-2015年春季

But since the weather has been so lovely 对于 the last week or two 和 we've been out in the 花园 (we've even enjoyed our few barbecues of the year!) it's been impossible to ignore, so over the weekend I announced that I was going to get it weeded. It was hard work, we had grown some pretty impressive weeds 和 there was a big patch of nettles by the fence that come through from the green space beyond. 的re is still more to do, like taming the large climbing plant gradually coming over from next door that I need to prevent from swallowing up the garage, 和 the planters still need a bit of work.

我对自己设法完成的工作感到非常惊讶,而且我只需要停下来,因为我们的绿色垃圾箱已塞满,并且在接下来的几周内要额外等待袋子出门。

花园如何成长-2015年春季

每年我通常都会设法种些西红柿,而今年Harry迫切希望开始种植,尤其是在我将他打印出这个工厂之后 种植番茄种子实况报道 (Twinkl订户资源) 来自Twinkl。我有一些古老的番茄种子,我们在复活节期间用手指牢固地将它们种在一起,尽管它们花了一段时间才能走,但看起来我们很快就会有几株要盆栽。我通常在菠菜和胡萝卜上都取得了一些成功,我父亲也为我准备了其他蔬菜。

我们的#AmiGami工艺派对

最近,我受邀主持 阿美神 我的孩子们和他们的一些朋友的手工艺派对。 阿美神是一款面向6岁以上儿童的全新手工玩具。孩子们可以使用多种印刷纸和贴纸来定制自己的AmiGami动物,并通过多种不同方式使用这些材料来释放自己的想象力。

举办儿童AmiGami手工艺派对

我们收到了精选的手工艺包,以便每个孩子可以创造两只动物- 和一个 变色龙. Each kit comes with a plastic animal base, some tools, instructions, pins which allow you to stick the paper pieces to the base, 和一个 pack of stickers 和 paper pieces. 的re are lots of bits 和 pieces included with each kit, many more than you actually need, so there are hundreds of different ways that you can complete the kit.

举办儿童AmiGami手工艺派对

Although the pieces are vaguely themed to the kits (for example there is a curly tail 对于 the 变色龙 和 fish 对于 the 猫) they are all interchangeable, so if you have several different sets you can mix 和 match. 的 kits are also reusable, as you can easily remove the pins 和 redesign your animal, 和 they contain everything that you need, with no glue required.

举办儿童AmiGami手工艺派对

All the individual pieces first need to be pressed out from their sheets. It's easy 和 doesn't take long, but because we had quite a lot to do my 孩子们 和 I prepared it all in advance to save time on the day. 的 shapes 和 pegs got mixed up between the two different animals, but that didn't matter, it just meant that the 孩子们 had more options 对于 making their creatures. I had a go 在 making a 猫 in advance which was a good move, as I was able to give the 孩子们 a quick intro 和 explain what to do before leaving them to see how they got on. 

举办儿童AmiGami手工艺派对

的 kits are aimed 在 孩子们 aged 6+, but several of the guests 在 our party were younger. This wasn't a problem though, we found that the 6 year olds could easily be left alone to complete the 工艺, 和 even though the younger ones did need a little bit of help they still really enjoyed it 和 became engrossed in what they were doing. Fortunately I had also invited some 工艺y Mums that were happy to help them out!

To make the 阿美神 animal you press pegs into the holes on the base 和一个dd the patterned cut out shapes to create the embellishments. You can use the special tool to wrap long strips of paper up into spirals, add the cut out shapes to make wings 和 tails, 和 there are plenty of sweet little stickers which you can use to decorate too. 的 stickers can be reused up to three times, so 孩子们 don't need to worry if they make a mistake when placing them. 

以下是一些专心于创作的孩子:

举办儿童AmiGami手工艺派对

And here are all our finished creatures on display, they look fantastic! I loved seeing how the 孩子们 used the pieces to make the 工艺 individual to them. It was a really fun way to spend an afternoon 和一个 great idea 对于 play date. 的 工艺 kits retail 在 around £每只动物10个,所以这是一个每天都相当昂贵的游戏想法,但是对于家庭聚会或生日聚会这样的特殊场合,它们将是招待一群幼儿的理想方式,成年人也很喜欢参与其中!成套工具也将为狡猾的孩子提供一个很棒的礼物。

我收到了足够的手工艺品,为我的孩子和他们的朋友们举办一次AmiGami聚会。

木制空间切口的空间图片

我们是贝克罗斯(Baker Ross)博客网络的成员,每隔几个月我们就有幸收到一大箱季节性手工艺材料。这次我们收到了很多夏季工艺品,但我们仍在忙着处理它们,因此下周我将在一篇博文中分享我们的一些创作。但是这次盒子里还放着一袋木制的空间形状的东西,我们在装饰它们时非常有趣,以至于我认为他们应该得到自己的职位。

木制镂空空间主题图片

Sometimes I'm 在 a bit of a loss when presented with blank shapes to decorate as I don't really know where to start. Until now the 孩子们 have needed quite a lot of guidance 和 help from me. But I showed Harry some examples from the website, 和 explained to him how he might like to use a pencil to mark out his design in advance before we painted. 的n I treated him to some of my acrylic paints to decorate them with, 和 he loved the opportunity to use some 'grown up' art materials.

他想出了一些可爱的设计,在做的时候,我给米娅涂了黄色的星星和月亮形状,以便米娅从托儿所回来时可以装饰。我帮助她用闪光和亮片装饰形状,认为对她来说就足够了,但是她当然也想去绘画,并装饰了几个自己的形状。

这是哈利的照片:

这是米娅的照片:

的 wooden shapes are glued to a piece of black card which has been mounted on a piece of thicker cardboard 和 then painted with silver glitter paint. I really like them, they are so lovely 和 I was so impressed with how well the 孩子们 worked with just a little bit of help 和 input from me. 的y are definitely going to be displayed proudly!

我们在贝克·罗斯(Baker Ross)手工箱中收到了木制形状。

未完成的工艺项目

实际上,我没有那么多未完成的手工艺品项目,因为我很擅长完成工作。但是,我周围有几个项目让我有些烦恼,还有我拥有所有材料但尚未开始的项目。

最近,我在我的页面上列出了所有这些项目 粉碎书,首先,以便我可以跟踪它们,其次,以寻找灵感,以防万一我有空闲时间并寻找一些狡猾的事情。

粉碎未完成的手工艺品项目的书单

在我们最近的假期中,我结束了一个我一直苦苦挣扎的项目,实际上,有几次它几乎都落入了垃圾箱。我曾经在Hobbycraft买过一个鸟笼套件,实际上 曾经写过一篇关于它的文章. It was very cheap, but it turned out to be a bit of a rubbish kit. It didn't contain any of the embroidery silks, so I had to use my own 对于 it. 的 pattern was impossible to read, 和 I did most of the design following the photograph that accompanied it. It's supposed to be a large coaster kit, but when I came to frame it the cork backing was too big 和 showed through the transparent sides, which made it look really messy. I managed to work something out though 和 I'm pretty pleased with the finished piece, it is quite pretty, 和 I'm glad that I stuck with it.

小鸟笼十字绣项目

Now I'm concentrating on another kit that I bought in the sales - a knit your own hot water bottle cover which came from 的 Works. I bought it mainly because it came with a mini hot water bottle, 和一个s Mia has been eyeing up Harry's hot water bottle 对于 some time I thought it would be nice to make 对于 her. It's supposed to be red 和 green with a festive crochet snowflake, but I've changed it to red 和 purple 和 I'm intending to decorate it with a felt heart (crochet 和 I don't get along).

针织热水瓶套件正在进行中

我不是很擅长编织,而且我对遵循花样非常恐惧。可能只有我一个人,但是其中包含的模式似乎意义不大,所以我一直在摸摸它。我编织了一个完整的面,而从第二面开始。这很容易做到,只是增加和减少了一点,希望明年冬天能完成!

Review - Colouring 对于 Adults - 的 One 和 Only Colouring Book Series

成人着色书目前很受欢迎。我最近写了关于 我第一次涉足成人着色世界,最近我被要求尝试一些新的荷兰语系列的涂色本,该系列将于下个月在英国上市。

Book 评论 - 的 One 和 Only Colouring Book Series

的 One 和 Only Colouring Book 系列针对成年人和年龄较大的儿童。我一直在看系列中的两本书- 的 One 和 Only Colouring Book 对于 Grown-Up Children and 的 One And Only Colouring Book For Adults (affiliate links).

Both books are quite similar, 和 contain a good mix of different designs. 的re are geometrical 和 repeating patterns alongside more fluid designs. Some pages have a natural theme, some are more abstract. 的re are also some lovely pages inspired by different architecture, with designs that range from very simple to beautifully complex. Each book has so many pages that it's really easy to flip through 和 find something that inspires you 和 matches your mood.

有些设计非常简单,例如重复的心形图案,非常适合当您追求简单的东西以使自己忙碌而又不需要过多的专注时。其他页面基于易于识别的图像,例如一些鱼和其他海洋生物组成了一个美丽的水下场景。

All the designs encourage you to think about the colour scheme that you want to use, 和 whether you want to stick to a limited palette or go wild with different colours. My only problem was deciding where to start! 的 first design that I chose was a simple one, 和 reminded me of gemstones 和 feathers.

Book 评论 - 的 One 和 Only Colouring Book Series

I've been using felt tip pens to colour with 和 they are colouring smoothly, the pages of the book are nice 和 thick. 的 designs have bold lines which makes them easy to colour neatly. 的 pages aren't designed to be removed from the book once completed (although you could if you wanted to without any trouble) but I can't wait to flip through the book once I've finished a few pages 和 see it come to life!

Book 评论 - 的 One 和 Only Colouring Book Series


I received two titles in the series 对于 the purpose of this 评论. 的 pages in this post are all from 的 One 和 Only Colouring Book 对于 Grown Up Children. Post contains Amazon affiliate links.

比利时的Parcs Erperheide中心

更新-我们非常喜欢去Erperheide的Center Parcs度假,所以我们又回来了两次!您可以在这里阅读我有关该行的最新帖子:

埃尔珀海德中心公园的第二个假期
埃珀海德中心公园的贵宾住宿
我们在Erperheide的Center Parcs的第三个假期

在哈利上学之前,我们在埃尔维登(Elveden)和朗利特(Longleat)的Center Parcs度过了几个快乐的家庭假期。我们利用减少学期时间的优势,享受了价格合理的短暂休息。但是,当我们调查学校假期价格时,发现英国某公园的假期价格太高了。但是令我们惊讶的是,我们发现在非洲大陆的Center Parcs某个度假胜地的休假价格便宜很多,而且似乎为您提供了更多的金钱。因此,我们抓住了机会,张开了翅膀,并在 帕尔森中心公园 在比利时,我们感到很高兴。

在比利时的Parcs Erperheide中心度过家庭假期

因为我们在复活节银行假期期间进行了访问,所以这次假期延长到了8晚。我们通过海峡隧道前往法国(可以用我们的Tesco Clubcard代金券支付这笔费用),然后从加来出发,穿过法国和比利时约两个半小时的车程。在汽油方面,我们花了比去Elveden花费更多的钱。

埃尔帕海德中心公园贵宾别墅

我们付款了 a small amount extra to stay in a VIP cottage. It wasn't huge, but it had a few extras that made our stay a little easier. For example, all bedlinen 和 towels were included, as well as a kitchen 和 toiletries package, free WiFi 和一个 big bag of fresh rolls which were delivered daily to the cottage. 的 two bedroom villa also had a sauna, 和一个 small kitchen with a dishwasher (although no oven, just a hob 和 microwave). 的re was a lovely, private outdoor area with barbecue 和 sun loungers, although it was a bit cold 对于 that when we visited!

尽管在复活节假期访问了我们,但我们发现公园比我们在英国公园中所经历的安静得多。实际上,使中心Parcs Erperheide与英国公园区分开的真正原因是孩子们可以做的事情很多,这一切都包括在我们假期的价格中。

在埃尔帕海德中心吃冰淇淋

水世界 is the swimming area, comparable to those that we've found in other Center Parcs resorts, possibly slightly larger. It has the usual central pool with an hourly wave machine, which is connected to a series of small, warmer pools linked together by shallow rocky waterfalls. 的re is a baby pool with small slides, 和一个 toddler pool with slightly larger slides. 的re are longer water slides 和一个n outdoor rapids slide, a large outdoor pool 和一个 lazy river. 的re was also a pretty cool themed outdoor area where you could dive under the water to see fish in tanks swimming alongside you.

的n there was 巴鲁巴,我们花了很多时间,而且很棒。它是一栋巨大的建筑,主要由一个大型的软滑梯区和一个封闭的泡沫球区组成。 


中心Parcs Erperheide室内泡沫球游乐区

的re is another soft play area on the other side, 和一个round the edges are a bouncy castle, trampolines, enormous Lego play area filled with different sized bricks 和一个n indoor race track with little cars that you can drive around 对于 €1. 


中心Parcs Erperheide Lego建筑面积

在巴鲁巴(Baluba)是一个咖啡馆,提供饮料和食物,然后是一个小型舞台,大部分时间主要进行免费的儿童活动,如迪斯科,手工艺品和讲故事。每周两次,还有一个深夜节目叫 Straordinario。对于我们的小孩子来说已经很晚了,所以我们只持续了上半场(整个演出大约在晚上10点结束),但是如果有点超现实的话,那确实很有趣。

帕尔森中心公园晚间表演

的 孩子们's daytime entertainment was hosted by a character called Orry 和 his three friends, 和 they were often seen driving about in their Orry Mobiel car, it was a really good way to tie all the 孩子们's fun together.

的re was plenty to do outdoors too. 的 孩子们 loved the 儿童农场, which was full of baby lambs 和 goats, as well as rabbits, guinea pigs 和 ponies. 的re were plenty of ducks to feed, 和 lots of outdoor playgrounds, some in the centre 和 some spread around the park.

农场中的Parcs Erperheide动物居中

除了所有免费活动外,我们发现额外活动的价格也非常合理。我们从来没有为我们的英国假期支付任何额外费用,因为它们可能是如此昂贵。但是在Erperheide,我们的预订中包括四张“ Toppings”抵用券,可用于您住宿期间的各种额外活动。我们使用一张凭证来确保特定的别墅编号,使用两张凭证来支付 的小时 保龄球 一家人和一张儿童券 迷你高尔夫.

帕尔森中心公园迷你高尔夫

的re were lots of little 工艺 activities that the 孩子们 could do, 和 you paid 对于 them as you did them without needing to book in advance. 我们付款了 2.50 每个给孩子 装饰发光棒 为他们喜欢的孩子迪斯科舞会。我们还对孩子们进行了治疗 寻找复活节彩蛋活动 for 5 他们真正喜欢的每一个,他们回来的不仅仅是 每个价值5的巧克力!

中心Parcs Erperheide复活节彩蛋狩猎

的 only other activity that we paid 对于 was the 小子萨法尔i。对于 €12哈利用吉普车开了一个半小时就能把米娅开走了,花了他一段时间才解决,但这很有趣!



Just down the road in Peer is a large Lidl which is easy to spot. Although we took most of our food with us, it was useful 对于 the extras as well as 对于 stocking up on some local favourites like big bags of Belgian waffles! 的re's a string of other supermarkets 和 fresh fruit 和 veg shops in Peer too, 和 the shop on site 在 Center Parcs itself is very good 和 reasonably priced.

我们主要自炊式。埃珀海德(Erperheide)没有我们在英国公园中找到的各种各样的连锁餐厅,并且餐厅的选择主要基于您可以吃自助餐的所有餐点,这并不十分适合我们,因为我们的孩子很挑剔并且不喜欢吃很多。我们确实吃了几次 大咖啡馆 在愉快的环境中提供了一系列价格合理的食物和饮料,以及几个儿童游乐区。

Belgium has three official languages - Dutch, French 和 German - 和一个ll the important information was given in these three languages as well as English. 的 Orry kids show was in Dutch 和 the story time was in Dutch 和 German, but this didn't seem to bother the 孩子们. I do speak German 和 can understand some Dutch so I was able to translate, but I don't think you'd find it a problem if you couldn't, 和一个ll the staff 和 entertainers knew English.

我们度过了如此灿烂的时光,无论您是否经常去Parc Center,都绝对会推荐在Erperheide Center度假。如果您有任何疑问,请随时在评论中提出,我们非常乐意为您提供帮助!

我们付款了 680(约£490) 对于 an 8 night stay in a 埃尔帕海德中心公园贵宾别墅. 的 full price 对于 the Channel Tunnel was £146次退货,我们使用Tesco Clubcard代金券支付了三分之一的价格。相比之下,那周我们在Center Parcs Elveden为我们四个人建造的类似别墅将使我们花费超过£2000年,但没有Erperheide提供的许多额外服务。

胶水(我们使用了Bostik蓝光棒)
蓝色闪光
鱼贴
炮弹
小海底主题玩具
棉针

使用说明:

从纸板箱上切下顶部和侧面的挡板。确保移除所有内部折板或将其固定牢固-我们使用了双面胶带,但实际上最终由于纸板在涂漆时翘曲而不得不缝上几针来缝合。在盒子的沙质部分的两侧划出线条,然后涂成蓝色和沙色。

当这层油漆干燥后,用胶水覆盖盒子的内部并撒上蓝色闪光。为了保持闪光效果,我们使用了Bostik蓝光棒。我们以惊人的速度通过胶棒,但是这种胶棒特别好,因为当您第一次使用胶棒时,胶水显示为蓝色,然后变干了,因此您可以看到放置在哪里。非常适合与那些倾向于自由运用的小巧匠精打细算,因为他们可以看到他们已经在哪里粘贴了胶水。
