Easter Eggs Decoration Kit

Today the girls enjoyed decorating chocolate Easter eggs from a kit I had bought from notonthenightstreet.  It was such a fun family Easter activity! The eggs were made of good quality chocolate and there was way more chocolate drops and sweeties than needed - which the girls enjoyed 'testing'.

Today the girls and I went to Legoland which is about an hour and a half away from Cambridge. It was a great time to go...we did to queue for a few rides but only for about 20 minutes and the weather was great!  We took a picnic to keep costs down but I did buy the girls an ice cream (£3.30 for 1 scoop!!!). The girls enjoyed all the rides. We also enjoyed the starwars exhibition and Miniland. The favourite ride of the girls was Dragon rollercoaster. Yes it was expensive (although we booked online a week before to make it slightly cheaper) and I would never want to do in the height of summer.. but the girls had a fab time (and this is my theme park limit :) ).

Cambridge Science Festival First Saturday

Today we went to the Science Festival.

We started off engineering, making a large cardboard castle (almost impossible to get home on a bike!) with working lights! P enjoyed making the circuit and E designing the castle, even utilizing spare cardboard to add an extension.

Next we went to the Chemistry Department where we enjoyed learning about hydrogen batteries for cars, turning 2p coins gold and other exciting experiments.

Lastly, we went to the Biology departments for CHaOS. The girls enjoyed biology, chemistry and physics experiments.
