50 plus things to do with your child before they’re 11 3/4

This morning we drove to West Runton beach in North Norfolk. West Runton is a great source of fossils which can be found in the rock pools and at the base of the cliffs. Belemites (squid) and shellfish from the fossilised river bed kept us busy as the tide came in.

A lovely visit to the library in Aylsham. H loves coming here. He reads, he looks and pretty much just explores and searches for adventure and excitement hidden among the shelves. I always tell parents that it really doesn’t matter what they’re child reads as long as they read. Novels, comics, graphic novels, picture books and online fiction and media. If they read; they’ll have a thirst for knowledge.  Whether it’s based in a galaxy far, far away or whether it is about the history and players of their favourite sports team, it really doesn’t matter.

Number 5-Skim a stone.

Took Harry to the Cromer New Year Fireworks on the 8th January (Postponed due to weather originally!) and enjoyed the rolling waves on the beach. Skimming a stone is something that brings back fun memories of growing up in Wells-next-the-sea. We picked up the best skimming stones that Cromer had to offer and threw our offerings to the sea. The sea sadly was a little rough and as you skimming experts all know, a gentle, calm sea or pond is the best for this kind of technical activity. Nonetheless, Harry managed a few well skimmed efforts and had to be draggged back to shore only the once.  img_1105
