Free Family Events and Activities in North East England in May

***FREE EVENTS***
The month of May. One of the best months of the year. Many of our family were born in this month so we have a lot of celebrating to do. As well as the current UK Prime Minister being called May, apparently 9 UK prime ministers were actually born in May, which is more than any other month. Maybe one day one of us will be PM!

May also gives us two Bank Holiday Weekends, another week of school holidays and it really starts to get warmer, lighter and we all start feeling better. To celebrate here are some of the FREE family events and activities taking place in and around North East England in May, including Northumberland, North Tyneside, Newcastle, Gateshead, South Tyneside, Durham and Teesside.

If you know of any other free events please email them to me and I’ll add them to the list.

7 Tips on How to Protect Your Hair in the Summer Months

***SPONSORED GUEST POST***
The warmth of summer is always welcome. Longer days, plenty of sunshine, peeling away the layers of clothing are part and parcel of life with winter behind us for another year.

Heat and the sun make us feel so much better about ourselves but, the effects of the summer are somewhat tempered with a heavy dose of reality when we look in the mirror: overly dry hair, damaged by the sun, chlorine from days at the pool and salt water from days at the beach.

Fortunately, all it takes is a few changes and creating your own summer hair care routine to save your luscious locks from the dreaded summer dull-and-lifeless droop.

Quick and Easy No-Cook Tasty Snack Bars - Perfect for Adults and Childrens Lunch Boxes

***RECIPE***
Now that many of us of trying to be more and more careful about what we eat, it’s a lot easier to find quick, convenient, and healthy little snacks readily available in supermarkets. 

However, they do come at a cost and the healthiest bars are not always the cheapest.

Did you know that it is really easy to make your own? A healthy treat, largely made from fruit takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. Something halfway between an apple and a chocolate bar, also handily sized for a lunch box and packed with energy in the form of good fats and natural sugar.

Getting the Boys Writing for National Stationery week

***Review***
National Stationery Week runs 24 April - 30 April 2017, when the UK will celebrate its passion for handwriting and all things stationery. I think this is an important initiative. Writing is just as important as ever, and to help get involved we have been sent a big box of stationery.

Have a Whale of a Time on the Way to Amsterdam

Did you know how much wildlife can be spotted from on board the passenger ferry in the North Sea?

From dolphins to whales to birds, you’ll be amazed how many there are. We attended a recent event onboard to learn more about it, and you will be able to learn all about the wildlife that lives in the North Sea too if you are sailing from Newcastle to Amsterdam on the DFDS King Seaways ferry, on a marine wildlife mini cruise.

A Wonderful Family Day Out at New Lanark World Heritage Site & The Falls of Clyde

***REVIEW***
New Lanark World Heritage Site is one of 6 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Scotland. It is a beautifully restored 18th-century cotton mill located in the Clyde Valley, Just one hour south of Glasgow and Edinburgh, it welcomes over 300,000 visitors every year to experience over 200 years of social history and industrial heritage.

It has to be said, it is not a World Heritage Site that I had previously been aware of, but when offered the opportunity to visit and review, it caught my interest, and the combination of history, heritage, the outdoors, and the first trip to Scotland for my boys I thought would be enough to convince them too. And it was.

Lightwater Valley - A Family Day Out in North Yorkshire with Angry Birds

***REVIEW***
Lightwater Valley is a theme park near Ripon in North Yorkshire, England. It is only eight miles from junction 50 on the A1 and less than 75 miles from Newcastle. When an invitation arrived inviting My Boys Club to review the theme park, it was an invitation we were not going to turn down and the hope of a great family day out in Yorkshire awaited us.

I didn't know this until this week but Lightwater Valley is best known for being the home of Europe’s longest rollercoaster - The Ultimate. More about the rollercoaster later.
