If I’ve learned one thing doing this blog over the last year it’s that restaurants, cafes, leisure attractions and shops really need to consider what young children like doing if indeed they want to attract young families to visit. Having discovered so much on offer in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas, it now takes something fun and cool to entice us to go somewhere. Xscape MK has done that this summer with their walking dinosaur. My husband took my 3 year old to see him and he loved it – slightly apprehensive at first but quickly got excited. He’s there for one last time on Saturday 3rd September at 12pm, 1.30pm, 3pm & 4.30pm. It’s free! Do watch my youtube video below so you have an idea about what to expect.
I'm Laura, mum of two boys - aged six and four. I started this website at the end of Sept 2015 whilst on maternity leave. I now work four days a week and do this blog late at night once the little boys are sleeping. It's won several awards over the last four years and I continue to run it for free and mostly focus on free, cheap, and good value days out. Do drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to contact me. Don't forget to follow all of our latest adventures on facebook, instagram and twitter and have a look at all of the videos of the places we visit on the Milton Keynes Kids YouTube Channel - subscribe to it for notifications every time I add a new place. And remember... you may been reading this post months after we visited, do check with the destination you're visiting for up to date opening times and prices. If you find this blog useful then please do comment on my posts and leave me a Facebook review - it makes doing this all the more worthwhile.
