In my quest to become a Center Parcs Family Blogger I have taken on their December challenge. Last month saw us putting our poetry hat on and getting creative with Autumn leaves. This month Nick, a Center Parcs Winter Wonderland expert, has asked us to share twelve of our favourite Christmas things.
Well, I could have just written them down…perhaps should have just written them down, but instead decided to
lose the plot entirely give things a musical twist.
So, I can only apologise, but I would suggest that you put on your best Christmas jumper, drink a large glass of egg-nog and sing along with me to the tune of ‘Favourite Things’ from The Sound of Music…
Red cups in Starbucks and gingerbread lattes,
New dress to wear to the work Christmas party.
Crafting an angel with pipe-cleaner wings.
These are a few of my favourite things.
Pigs in their blankets and Scrooge on the telly,
Too many mince pies, not great for my belly.
Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday nights.
These are a few of my Christmas delights.
Gifts and baubles,
And if I feel sad,
I simply dress up my poor son as an elf,
And then I don’t feel…
Nothing like a Christmas sing song hey? *Coughs*
As part of the December challenge we have also been asked to share our favourite tip from Nick. This is mine.
For those who don’t fancy venturing out, there’s still plenty to do inside at Center Parcs. The traditional pantomimes are always a favourite with our guests and the Elf Academy at Sherwood Forest turns your little ones into trainee elves, complete with an elf graduation.
Seriously? An Elf Academy…this is quite possibly the cutest thing that I have ever heard.
This is my entry to the Center Parcs and Tots 100 December challenge. If I’m chosen, I would like to visit Longleat Forest.
