We all spent an enjoyable day at the NEC Classic Car show a week or two ago. It's difficult to fully describe how much our son comes alive around cars. He loves everything about them, and stands and looks over every detail.
A particular highlight for him was seeing Edd China and Mike Brewer from Wheeler Dealers. WD is a show on Discovery where Mike buys old but classic cars, Edd restores them and they're re-sold hopefully at a profit. Forget CBeebies, our son LOVES this programme and will happily watch it for hours.
The picture shows him on his Dad's shoulders, listening intently to Mike announce the car of the show.
If you'd asked me a few years ago, a day looking at cars wouldn't have been top of my list of things to do, but I enjoyed it too, especially because our son loved it so much.
I'd love to know if your kids are fascinated by anything in particular.. how do you encourage it?
