Today I took the Little Man along with a couple of friends to soft play. My friend commented that there was nothing like soft play around when we were young and she’s right, that got me thinking how about how excited I would have been as a child. Of course, these days I have to help Little Man climb around, and go down the bigger slides with him, it’s a tough life but someone has to do it. (No, honestly, it’s tough, I was shattered at the end of it!)
For me, soft play means giving the children an opportunity to get some exercise and have fun while being indoors. Great for winter days out. It’s also a chance for me to catch up with friends while our children have fun. If I’m honest though, I prefer soft play centres when they are quiet and full of younger rather than older children. The older children do tend to go a little crazy, and sometimes the noise levels are astounding. All my children love soft play, although the Little Man is only just getting to grips with climbing. Star sometimes gets worked up if there are too many children or it’s too noisy, but mostly she just joins in and enjoys herself.
Here are some photos of today’s venture, although not very good as it’s difficult to take decent pics of children rushing around especially on your phone.
Our soft play session today was paid for by the vouchers you can collect with Bassetts Soft and Chewy Vitamins. A recent survey by Bassetts showed that 71% of mums in the Uk enjoy treating their children to a soft play day because it is guaranteed high-energy entertainment that can be enjoyed whatever the weather.*
Bassetts Soft and Chewy Vitamins come in a range of flavours for children to take one-a-day to support a healthy lifestyle. We tried out the orange and strawberry flavours and the children liked the flavours and the chewy texture.
Each packet of Bassetts Soft and Chewy Vitamins comes with a Free Soft Play Sticker. By going online to https://www.bassettsvitaminssoftplay.co.uk/ you can enter the code and print off a voucher. You then need to stick the sticker off the pack onto the voucher and then take it along to your soft play centre of choice. With half term coming up it will be a great way of entertaining your child for free.
I received two packs of Bassetts Soft and Chewy Vitamins to try along with the free soft play stickers. All thoughts and opinions are my own apart from the survey statistics.
