Today we went on a home ed trip to Cadbury World in Birmingham.
The boys were very excited as was I tbh. We met the rest of the group in the foyer and began our adventure into chocolate.
As soon as we walked into the queue we were handed 3 bars of chocolate each (curly wurly, diary milk, crunchie) I assume this is a random selection but very much appreciated by the boys either way! I’m not going to tell you about every part of the day just highlights 🙂
We walked into a Mayan jungle, we learnt that the Mayans used cocoa beans as currency. We learnt that the first kind of chocolate was drank and that pleasure was saved exclusively for men of wealth in the Georgian times.
Further along we were given a pot of melted chocolate and asked to pick 2 toppings.
We had a quick stop for lunch (despite consuming chocolate all day they still had to eat!) then they had a play on the park.
Just look at those seats 💺.
A quick trip round the shop and a hot chocolate of course, and we were ready for home.
I’m writing this whilst the children sleep and B drives so all in all it’s been a good day, who wouldn’t want to learn with chocolate?
