And if you want to take things a step further, why not have a look at their site for ideas on how to make bird feeders.
We have a great new venue in Fratton which opened recently – The Cubano Beach Club and they will be holding a Mini Disco for 0-5s every Saturday 10.15 am – 10.45 am at a cost of £3 per child. Hosted by Captain Rey of the Pompey Sea, toddlers can learn a range of dances to English and Spanish classic disco songs. At the start of the class they are dressed up as mini pirates for a fun filled 30 minutes of dancing, with resident puppets Mambo and Choco. They also have preschool Spanish classes available in the afternoon – Brainy Bambinos Preschool Spanish with no booking necessary.
