Slime Bug Cups

What better treat on Halloween then a slime bug cup. Beyond the layer of chocolate biscuit dirt, spooky sweets, spiders, snakes and worms lies a layer of slime-like lime jelly.

slimy bug cupIngredients

4 x 135g packs of lime jelly

a selection of animal and bug sweets

2 x 154g packs of Oreo biscuits

 

Step 1

Make up the jelly following pack instructions. Pour a third of the mixture into 12 small glasses or plastic pots. Add a couple of bugs to each pot, then leave to set in the fridge, keeping remaining jelly at room temperature.

 

Step 2

Once set, add more bugs to each container (lean some against edges, so they stick out the top). Pour over a third of the jelly and leave to set in the fridge. Repeat with remaining bugs and jelly.

 

Step 3

For the soil topping, place cookies in a plastic bag and, using a rolling pin, bash into crumbs, then tip onto a plate.

Step 4

Just before serving, sprinkle a layer of soil over each set jelly, then top with a mushroom, a slug and some ants or your choice of creepy crawlies.

Woodland Scavenger Hunt

Stuck what to do in the summer holidays with the children?

A scavenger hunt can provide hours of fun for your kids. It typically involves a list of things that they will need to find, in order to tick it off their list.

Suitable scavenger hunt items could be anything from finding any fallen leaf through to a twig from a certain tree or a petal from a specific flower. If it’s a rainy day, then simply create a list of household objects that they need to go and find instead, though an outdoors scavenger hunt is always much more fun.

If you don’t fancy creating your own list, then why not download the Crocky Trail woodland walk scavenger hunt here.

Crocky Trail Woodland Scavenger Hunt

Good Old Fashioned Family Fun!

We have had a brilliant blog article written and posted on Mummy Fever. We thought that we’d share it with you:

Having looked at the website this looked right up the big kids street as they are very adventurous and not afraid to get wet and muddy. It is a good job as well, as although it was July it was actually more like November and they wore their ski jackets for a large part of the day.

This is the kind of place though where although you are outside, it really doesn’t matter what the weather is doing and if i’m honest the horrific weather that day just added to the excitement and adventure. For anyone not taking part, there are places to shelter so just make sure you have your wellies and waterproof to hand and you’ll be fine.

The Crocky Trail provides kids with good old fashioned fun and allows them to play in a way that many children simply do not have the opportunity to do so today.

We loved the Crocky Trail – the children were able to challenge themselves and push their limits. The skipping challenge was a big favourite as were the slides. The highest slide was the first thing the children headed for on arrival but only one of them was able to complete it. My second eldest came back down the steps as he felt it was too high for him. As his confidence built during the day though he was determined to give it another go and came down it three times before we left. A quote from Winnie the Pooh is what springs to mind after our visit.

What the Crocky Trail have spot on

  • Superb value for money – you can stay all day for your entry price
  • You can walk around at your own pace
  • Great for adventure
  • Great for challenging yourself and your children
  • Great for some good old fashioned fun getting wet and muddy
  • Changing rooms available
  • Lots of picnic areas – covered and open air, plenty of options
  • Still open in wet weather – just take wellies and waterproofs
  • Covered seating areas if spectators wish to shelter from bad weather
  • First aid centre available
  • Parents and children can join in together – a great family activity
  • Perfect for 5 years plus I would say
  • Set in the gorgeous Cheshire countryside
  • Friendly staff and plenty of them around
  • Lots of bins and recycling points
  • Free parking for the duration of your visit
