  • Ooh! I’ve just launched my superhero craft box, so we’ll definitely check out the Superhero trail at Waddesdon! Maybe we can take some photos of my craft box on tour! I love their trails, they’re really well done and the playground in the woods is fantastic too. I like the sound of hibernating Hedgehogs at Hughenden too!

    We’ve not been to the Roald Dahl Museum events yet. I’ve took my youngest to a couple of their toddler story sessions, but I’ve never been into the museum. I love the names of their craft activities!

    Thanks for a great round-up. I’ll share it with my customers.
