A little while ago on my Instagram stories I asked if you had heard about Adventure Clubs and I was so suprised at how many of you hadn’t. Well let me tell you, I’m about to make your summer holidays a whole lot easier!
Adventure Clubs main focus is to create memorable experiences for your child that encourage them to socialise, experiment and learn. We’ve been to a few different adventures over the last year and every single time that we go, Aria thoroughly enjoys herself and we always meet new moms and start to recognise a few familiar faces. Two weeks ago Adventure Clubs offered us a complimentary adventure which we were so excited about. We chose to attend the Mini Masterchefs adventure where the kiddies would learn how to make mince pies, perfect for the festive season!
Tanya Mawing George from Bright Young Chefs was the adventure host and was incredibly welcoming. She runs her workshops from her home and the set up is absolutely incredible! The first thing she did was tell all the little ones to go wash their hands, and they all ran to the wash station, excited about what was to come. The whole adventure was so well conducted and Sharon made sure to include all of the five senses, little things like smelling the spices, and feeling the texture of the pastry.
Of course Aria is ever so slightly too young to do everything by herself so I helped quite a lot but as you can see from these pictures, she had tons of fun eating the spiced raisins from the measuring jug! She did actually manage to do quite a bit; rolling out the dough, helping me cut with the cookie cutters and mixing together the spices and raisins.
Right, now you’re probably wondering how you sign up Adventure Clubs, and this is the best part; it’s all done on your phone! Simply download the app (it’s free). You can select your area and start to scroll through all of the different adventures until you find one that you and your kids would enjoy. All of the adventures have age groups which is really helpful and the fact that you can pay through the app is such a bonus as well! Once you RSVP to the event you will get notifications reminding you of the time or if anything needs to be communicated to you, you can also see who else will be attending.
As a mom, Adventure Clubs is just such a wonderful concept; the actual adventures are so beneficial to Aria, it’s a great way for me to meet new people and just the ease of booking makes my life so much less complicated.
