One of the best local places we’ve found to see interactive Christmas displays is at Frosts Garden Centre in Woburn Sands. They’ve expanded the store in the last few months so their Christmas store is huge. On the shop floor the kids can see a big gingerbread house, singing reindeer and a talking letterbox among other things. There’s a few festive photo opportunities. Outside there’s a huge reindeer that is lit up at night and very pretty. You can see all of these things for free. In all honesty my 3 year old and 1 year old weren’t huge fans of the singing reindeer (they made them cry – I think they thought they might be real) but I know lots of other children think they’re good fun. The café there is lovely and a good meeting place to see friends. There’s a small wooden play area right at the back suitable for toddlers. Obviously it’s a shop so they want you to spend money, but if you can avoid temptation then there’s a few good things for the kids to see if the weather isn’t good. Watch the video below so you get the idea.
