The Woodland Fairy Experience is one of my favourite things to do with the kids. It’s rustic and magical and full of good old loveliness and not overpriced. I love it.
A friend went to visit the man in red at Santa’s Woodland Experience in Balfron last year. These are her thoughts. Spoiler alert: she loved it, and so did her entire family!
I was so looking forward to Jurassic Kingdom when I bought the tickets. From the advertising, it looked excellent. Dinosaurs that move and make noise and that could seem real to my little humans –[…]
The inflatables at Badminton For You make a great change from soft play. All the climbing and bouncing around exhausts the little lady (and me when I join in). We really enjoy it.
The exhibition is underwhelming. Downstairs was fun but we could have stayed home and played with Lego at no cost. For what it is £16 family entry is steep.
The little lady loves a good playpark. I’m a fan too – outdoors, free, energy burning – perfect activity! So I thought I’d share our favourite playparks in Glasgow (or pretty nearby).
We made the most of the dry weather yesterday & headed to Free Wheel North at Glasgow Green for a shot of the balance bikes…
The little lady is dinosaur daft. So we went to one of the Dino Dig Little Explorer Days in the Science Centre. The little lady had a fantastic time making and playing and exploring!
Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre is rustic, and there’s plenty to keep the kids occupied. There’s space for the kids to run free and lots of animals to interact with; probably more of the latter than at other children’s farms we’ve been to. I’d definitely recommend it!
We had some beautiful weather last month and tried to make the most of it. One of the little day trips we went on was to check out Gourock Outdoor Pool. Great for a lovely sunny day!
We’ve been along to the new playpark at Calderglen Country Park a few times since it opened. It’s great for younger and older kids, and the little lady LOVES it!
My lovely friend wrote this review of her recent visit to Greenbank Gardens with her toddler and baby. Sounds like a great day out!
I have an admission: I have never before been through to the Edinburgh festival. I always meant to go, but just never got round to it. So even though we went to Edinburgh last weekend[…]
We headed along at the weekend, just the two of us, to the Woodland Fairy Experience. It’s a really sweet, well thought out and magical activity for kids. The little lady LOVED it.
The promise of playtime at a Caribbean beach is surely enough to make any toddler be on their best shopping behaviour, right? It’s a great way to break up the day if you’re in town for a few hours. Also, it’s a great way to support a local charity.
We had a great time at Culzean Castle & Country Park. They have one of the best playparks we’ve ever been to. There’s so much to do at Culzean and it’s really beautiful too; pretty gardens, swans, forest and a big rocky shoreline. Excellent day out.
Amazonia is small, but the little lady and her friend had a great time. Once they were done with the animals, the bridges entertained them for ages.
I enjoyed wandering around St Mungo Museum and Glasgow Cathedral. There are lots of really beautiful artefacts and architecture. The little lady didn’t quite appreciate either of them though. She enjoyed exploring, but we’ll probably go to a more child-friendly museum in future.
New Lanark is a great day out whether you want to spend it indoors or outdoors. The Annie McLeod Experience is something fun and unusual for a rainy day, and the Falls of Clyde Reserve is a lovely place for a walk.
Cafe Ceramico is a great place to spend a morning or an afternoon with kids. It kept a pair of toddlers occupied for a good 3 hours. Well worth the trip out to East Kilbride.
