Millie's half term Panda fun!

Ah Millie, my Panda mad cheeky one. It seems like she spends her whole life following her football mad brother to his football training or matches.

I have had a couple of days off of work this week as its half term. So after day one was spent watching Chester play football, I decided day two should be spent doing something Millie loves doing. It was a pretty difficult task trying to find something, I mean her only true love is Panda! But eventually I found that the Intu shopping centres were running some Kung Fu Panda 3 activities over half term. 

So on Tuesday we headed over to Lakeside to see what panda activities we could find! Millie insisted on wearing her panda themed clothes and taking one (of many) panda teddy with her. 

I presumed we would be doing the activities for an hour or so and be home just after lunch. Oh how wrong was I! Both children loved it so much that we were busy with the panda activities for around 4 hours! 

There was an interactive story time, where the staff envolved the children in a little game. Millie's job was to spin the red umbrella to give everyone else luck! 

Then we spent quite a lot of time colouring in and making panda masks... 

Chester was very interested in making himself a bandana, which some Chinese writing on it. He chose to write warrior on his, whilst I helped Millie write princess. No surprises there! 

They were also lucky enough to have a Kung fu session too. All in all it was a pretty awesome day, really well organised and the staff were lovely. They really made it a fun time for all the children!

I think it's safe to say that Millie certainly got her Panda fix on that day!
