The show is for mums and dads of 4 – 12 year olds; so school ages kids, but not quite those who are starting to be dragged into the un-communicative, and grumpy land of the teenager…though very possibly bordering on it. The show is designed to allow us to:
“Get face to face with the discussion raised by other parents, books, newspaper articles, TV shows, expert blogs and websites as well as teachers and of course our own mums and dads.”
Most people will be after some great insights from the many exhibitors, partners, brands, celebrities and parent bloggers that are going; though this mum will be terrified that mentioning poo too much in public doesn’t disrupt her street-cred, as KiddyCharts have managed to
blag / impress our way onto two of the sessions in The Conversation Theatre.
The first session is on Thursday 16th May. It’s called Non Negotiable and is with the lovely, Helen Wills from the blog Actually Mummy, Kate Barlow from The Parent Consultancy, Naomi Richards (The Kids Coach), and Sue Atkins from TV fame and discusses child behaviour. The second one is about following that dream as a Mumpreneur and setting up your own business; Being a Mumpreneur: Expert Advice and Experience. Can’t think why they think I might know something about that, eh? This second discussion is on Saturday the 18th May.
But there is more than me there! In fact, even if you ignore KiddyCharts being there. There are plenty of other reasons to go, not least that they are currently offering Dads and Kids free tickets if you use the code BUTLINS at check out.
There is so much for the kids to do, my kids are actually coming with me on the Saturday, an I can guarantee, they are not going to be watching me chatter all the time, I suspect that they may just be sidling off to the Play Zone to have a go at some of the Good Toy Guide listed toys on offer to play with there.
- Face painting
- Zebra ceramics cafe
- Theatre for kids
- Monster Factory
- Delights craft,
- and more!
Aside from the kids entertainment, there may even be some great answers to some of those parenting dilemma’s, or burning questions that you have. Not only am I speaking there, but there are some other wonderful people, including a few other fellow bloggers:
- Jennifer Howze from Britmums, and Jenography
- Victoria Welton from Vevios
- Paul Hooker from I am Well Confused Me
- Chris Mosler from Thinly Spread.
As well as speaking, there will be a few bloggers there just to check out the show, including Crazy With Twins,Mummy Be Beautiful,Family Four Fun, Boo Roo and Tigger Too; hopefully a few will pop along to give the mad ones that have agreed to speak a little moral support too!
So why not pop along yourself; what have you gotta lose – other than a few of those parenting stresses?
I have been given free tickets to this event, however all opinions are my own. And to be honest, The Treehouse looks fun enough for me to go to and get my face painted in?!?
