Turn The Terrible Twos Into Terrific Times And Cherished Memories

Escaping with young children to experience new adventures, senses and sights can be more beneficial and educational than just playing at home or at a playgroup.

Expressing their personalities in free-range surroundings on a short family break with fun activities can help toddlers and young children express themselves and learn more with their parents.

That’s according to Bluestone National Park Resort in Pembrokeshire which says parents and children can get more out of quality time together than just putting up with terrible twos stuck at home.

“Any new experience will make a toddler sit up and take notice. Immersing them into something new and exciting focuses their mind and play will engage and focus their senses,” said Yvonne Buckingham of Bluestone.

“Parents coming to Bluestone often comment to us on how their children become more engaging, whether it’s taking part in sensory play, going on a beast hunt in the woods, or immersed in the Blue Lagoon water park.”

Bluestone takes the pre-school market very seriously and is investing in new activities for 2014, continuing its commitment to ensuring it caters to all ages. 

The Tiny Tots Treehouse opened in the summer is one good example. This is in addition to the wide range of indoor and outdoor activities it runs to help stimulate young minds – from baby sensory to toddler sense, messy play to an indoor soft play area.

“Our programme of adventure play not only stimulates children’s minds, but it also helps keep them active by introducing them to new ways of having physical fun,” added Yvonne.

“It’s also a great way of keeping those terrible two tantrums at bay by keeping them entertained and providing cherished memories for years to come.”

Bluestone provides a wide range of ideas for short breaks with young children and toddlers and its team is on hand to provide advice on ways to keep them entertained throughout.
