Who is Outnumbered trips?
Lisa (36) Married with 3 boys aged 5, 2 & 1. I’m an ex primary school teacher and since leaving to raise my boys I’ve spent so much time looking for places to go with them and then posting pictures of them on social media. I’ve decided to make use of all my hard work by reviewing all the places that we visit in order to help others moms & dads.
We can’t wait to share all our adventures @outnumberedtrips

Black Country Living museum. We went here during half term. At first we thought it was going to be a little too much history for our boys aged 5, 2 & 1 but they absolutely loved it. Costs: Adults £17.95 3-16yrs £8.95 and 0-2 are FREE. They do some family deals too and at the minute they are offering a FREE return pass! We parked in the car park, which is £3.50 and you pay when you exit. The kids loved exploring all the old fashioned houses and running through the village. We visited the school and watched a lesson (Harrison, our 5 year old was too scared to participate). We caught the tram to the coal mine but apparently it isn’t suitable for under 5’s and wheelchair users. A short bus ride took us back into the village where the que was forming for fish and chips. We paid £20.18 for the family deal which included two large fish & chips, two small fish & chips, two pickled eggs and two buttered babs. We scoffed the lot 😀. After lunch we visited the old fashioned sweet shop and went for a walk around the shops and explored some of the local business. We finished the day with a trip to the fair where the children were able to have a go on the lighthouse slip and a few other rides (not included in the entrance price). We walked back through the village and there was visitors playing games like skipping and hop scotch in street. Our two older children joined in and the youngest sat happily watching. A fantastic day out was had by all of us and the children didn’t want to leave. We will be back soon.
Location: Bosworth Water Park Wellsborough Road, Nuneaton CV13 6PD Cost: free entry but car parking charges apply. (£2 per hour today but this varies by season and I believe it goes up to £2.50ph next month). When we arrived we were all super excited. The boys ran straight for the play areas. This was great fun for all ages as it was separated into three areas. Under 3’s, over 5’s and over 8’s. The boys loved it here and it kept them entertained for ages. Our next stop was to the man made beach. Lovely area, small enough for you to relax and watch the children but big enough for the children to have plenty of space to run around. There was lots of water sports on offer such as canoeing, kayaking and pedal boats but we didn’t try these out as the boys were quite happy playing on the beach. Plenty of spaces for a picnic & some people were having their own barbecues. We had a mini picnic but later in the afternoon the boys were hungry again but the queues were really long for food and drink as there was only place to eat. A lot of people were complaining about how long that they had to wait for their order so we decided to move on. Worth a visit here just for the children to have a play in the sand and water but I would recommend taking your own food and drinks

A lovely little farm situated in the heart of Kingsbury Water Park. We visited on a Wednesday morning last month as they were doing a toddler morning (please check before visiting if this is still on).
We were the only ones there and we had the whole farm to ourselves 😀. The boys enjoyed visiting the pigs, sheep, goats, llamas and rabbits. We brought food to feed them from the gift shop. After visiting all of the indoor animals the boys had a great time playing on the little ride on tractors in the barn.
Next we headed over to the field to meet the chickens and sheep. This was great fun as some of the chickens had escaped so Jaxen (2) had a fantastic time trying to catch them. Remember to take your wellies as the ground can be very muddy even on a dry day! We took advantage of all of the benches to have a picnic and to let the boys play in the play area which is prefect for younger children. The Granary Tea Room is available to use for refreshments if you prefer. There is also a fantastic indoor area with lots of toys, ride on’s and a superb soft play area. I would highly recommend this farm for a day out!
