We recently visited one of our favourite days out – Slimbridge Wetland Centre. Now, although we’ve been rather a few times previously, this was my first on my own with Toddler H. We also visited with some of her friends, friends from our NCT group. So the little ones had a brilliant time, especially in Welly Boot Land. Welly Boot Land is just as wet as it sounds – streams, fountains and water wheels.
Must haves for Welly Boot Land at Slimbridge
- Two changes of clothes
- Splash suit
Our toddlers spent well over an hour playing, running, getting soaked. They were all shattered and starving. Literally our 2.5 year old toddlers were all in their pushchairs and screaming by the time we made the short walk to the cafe. Sorry everyone in the cafe on Friday!
Take a packed lunch and snacks!
I’d recommend taking lunches for everyone, and then indulging in the cafe’s coffee and delicious cakes.
A pushchair doesn’t go amiss, after all that running around at Welly Boot Land even my toddler who will walk everywhere will sit in the pushchair.
I’d definitely recommend taking a stroller in even if it’s just to carry all the stuff you need.
Slimbridge is brilliant, but it is a wetland park and there might not be a toilet that close, so definitely take a potty if you’re potty training or newly trained. All that running around Welly Boot Land does lead to distracted toddlers, and we all know distracted toddlers can have accidents!
We love our My Carry Potty as it doesn’t involve carrier bags of wee or poo!
