I clicked on link and it came up but then disappeared again. I think it's Moors Valley Country Park isn't it? You have jogged my memory I used to take my children there lots, however haven't been for years (probably due to a bad experience of my car's engine deciding never to work again on the M27! then having to have it taken off motorway on back of breakdown truck!!). I think I will try to shake off my superstition about going back and take the minded children there-it will take about 45 mins though.

A long walk in the woods! We go hunting for lions and tigers and bears ...

Yep-will do. I'm sure the mindees (and my own) will love it.

How about taking them to the theatre? I am taking mine to see The Wizard of Oz this week - they're so excited! Here's a link for more theatre ideas for children that might be helpful:
