We have been talking a lot this week about our favorite way to spend the day together as a family. This is Mini’s (aged 7) and is also an entry to the MAD Blog Awards Kid Blog of the Year, in collaboration with Vita Coco Kids naturally fruit-flavoured coconut water.
My favorite way to spend a sunny day outside is with my friends. I am lucky to be best friends with three brothers who live on the same road as us and we play together a lot.
We all like to go to Theme Park’s together. They are much more fun of you have a group of friends with you to laugh and stop you being scared. We all went to FlamingoLand at Easter and it was lots of fun. It is a theme park and a zoo and has the world’s steepest roller coaster made from steel in a zoo there called the Mumbo Jumbo and I went on it (the zoo bit is very important apparently)!
I like that there are lots of animals too, including my favorite animals Tigers. In March three Sumatran tiger babies (called cubs) were born and they will be soon allowed in to the main enclosure. I want to go back and see them. I hope I can adopt one and give it a name too. I put together this comic on Mummy’s Ipad to show you how much fun we had.
I also like playing football, cricket and walking the day too. I like to do things I haven’t done before like archery. We are going to see the T20 cricket tomorrow and I am excited. I wish my friends could come too, but they are on holiday in Malta where it is always sunny, but they don’t grow coconut’s there. I also like having ice cream on a sunny day, my favorite flavour is mint choc chip.
All of this is Mini’s own work (I just changed any spelling mistakes). If you fancy making the comic’s I have a blog post about using them as a way to encourage boys to write. We use the POW Comic Strip App, which both of the boys have used at school and is £1.99 to download.
This is wonderful – such a great post! I will definitely be checking out the comic strip link too.
What a great day out and wonderful pictures. That App looks great x
Great post! love the look of that app 🙂

What a fun app – and theme parks are definitely a great way to spend a sunny day!
Awww I love this!! I hope my kids will write on my blog one day soon too! Well written and sounds indeed like the perfect way to spend a sunny day!
Sounds like the perfect way to spend a sunny day to me! Theme parks are great fun aren’t they – I haven’t visited Flamingo Land for years but really should take my two. Enjoy the summer Mini!
