We love bargains here at Baby Baby and they do say the best things in life are free...
One of our favourite free activities is spending time at the beach. We're very lucky to live just half an hour away from a beautiful sandy beach. We go to St Anne's beach on the Fylde coast in Lancashire. It is charming and old-fashioned, the complete opposite of it's noisy neighbour (the one with the tower).
We take a picnic blanket, sun cream, water and buckets and spades. The boys love to run on the sand. If the tide is out it takes forever to get to the sea. Then we find somewhere to sit - there is always plenty of space - and we dig holes and make sand castles.
The boys haven't quite got the hang of this yet and we all get frustrated when a bucket full of sand is tipped over from a great height. When it does work, it is wonderful to see the joy on their little faces. I'm sure in a couple of years they will get the hang of it and we can look forward to castles and moats. Until then we will enjoy the simples pleasures of sitting on a beach without a care in the world and endure sand getting everywhere.
As if free entertainment wasn't enough, how about free food?
Pizza Hut have been running an excellent offer this summer that allows kids under 12 to eat for free.
The Kids Eat Free offer has been extended to 9th January 2011.
