A Day Out with Notonthehighstreet Celebrating Storytime Sounds Story Hub at Godstone Farm, Surrey
We have used the Story time Sounds App since last Summer when it was launched and Gabriella has loved it. She loves the sounds and pressing the buttons and she never gets bored as every story is different since i've been making them up off the top of my head. As much as I really like to use my imagination to make up stories there are just some days which it feels beyond me so the launch of the Storytime Sounds hub was the perfect accompaniment to the perfect bedtime app.
If you don't know much about this app then let me tell you a bit more. The Storytime app is made up of eight sound boards, there's a really good selection enough for both boys and girls. The idea is to help parents bring a little magic to bedtime stories on their iPhone or iPad. Notonthehighstreet have since launched a story time sounds hub which provides very entertaining stories for those days when using your imagination to please the little ones is just too taxing!
We arrived to a very stunning setting at Godstone Farm, the event had been set up to look effortless and in true notonthehighstreet style. Simply Gorgeous. The barn was beautifully decked out with hay stacks covered in blankets, confetti filled clear balloons and super stylish cushions dotted around for little bottoms.
The girls were very excited to hear stories in the barn which was followed by a tour and a mooch around the farm. Storytelling was fun and would definitely give my storytelling a run for it's money! Good job to the notonthehighstreet team, they really engaged with the children and had them joining in and fighting for a chance to press the buttons on the app. I've got some great tips for future story reading with the app.
After storytelling and a lunch break we headed off for a very bumpy tractor ride for a tour of the farm and a guided tour. How sweet for see days old baby lambs, we were so lucky. Gabriella stroked rabbits and touched some baby piglets.
Storytime is a very special time each evening in our house. It's a time to relax, unwind and calm down. I find bedtime a great time to get their imaginations going and have some quality time.
