Family Days Out Column: ‘The new Ninja Warrior UK is epic in MK’

Family travel blogger Faye Shearwood discusses some fantastic activities to keep the kids entertained as we move into spring…

Now that spring has officially sprung and the evenings are getting lighter, we are looking forward to spending a lot more time outside.

Spring for me symbolises new beginnings, and is characterised by blooming flowers, fresh leaves, bird
song, baby animals and of course – Easter!

It’s time to hang up those coats and embrace nature! And with that – comes Little Frosties Kid’s Club.

We have been going to Frosts Garden Centre in Woburn Sands since we first moved to Milton Keynes 7
years ago – not only for their delicious cakes but also for their fantastic play area and garden centre.

Spring is a great opportunity to spruce up the garden and get the children involved too.

The Little Frosties Kids Club focuses on encouraging children’s development through outdoor play and
discovery, helping you and your little ones create an active and adventurous lifestyle – and you don’t even need a garden to take part!

The completely free club includes your very own loyalty card, a free monthly milk and cookie (with any
adult hot drink purchased), member only events and a packet of vegetable seeds.

My children love watching new shoots grow and it is great for their own mental well-being, so join online,
pick up a welcome pack in store and get growing!

Next up, something for us mums – as our own mental health and well-being is just as important.

I find it almost impossible to exercise as a new mum (especially as a mum of 3) –so enter; Fit Mummy MK!

Run by Helen Colby-Major, the mum and baby bootcamp provides a safe space for new mums to regain their fitness whilst keeping their little ones close by, and from rockers to bouncers and playmats to toys – there is lots to entertain (or even involve) them.

Helen is a qualified pre and post-natal trainer (her energy and enthusiasm is brilliant) – and the supportive, friendly and fun environment offers you the chance to regain your confidence whilst also
meeting other new mums.

After my first session I was hooked, it gives me the strength and motivation I need to take on a new week and I am even able to take both Evelyn (3) and River (4 months old) along with me as well. It runs Monday to Thursday from 11am, head to for more information.

And lastly, Ninja Warrior UK has just opened next to Asda, Bletcham Way and I took my son Beau there recently.

Quite simply, we had the BEST time – from sliding to climbing and bouncing to swinging, Beau really
embraced his inner ninja whilst keeping fit and developing his ninja skills.

Our particular favourite section was the inflatable obstacle course and warped wall – all supervised by
friendly and helpful staff.

Inspired by ITV’s hit programme, Ninja Warrior UK is great fun for all the family, and adults will have just as much fun as kids as it is suitable for a wide range of ages and abilities.

The minimum age for entry is 4 years old, ninja socks must be worn on the inflatable course and long sleeves are a must – can you beat the wall?
