We’ve been enjoying lots of time outdoors lately which has inspired me to make a little list of things to do with kids this spring. I’m going to use it as a little bucket list for the next couple of months. I hope it’s useful for you too!
Glasgow has loads of indoor places and activities that are either completely free to visit, or pretty low cost. Here’s a list of some of our favourites we’ve visited in the past 5 years!
This speedboat trip up the Clyde to Krispy Kreme was a special treat for Father’s Day last year. It was exhilarating and we all loved it. The pit stop for doughnuts in the middle was perfect. A brilliant afternoon out!
If you love cats and don’t have any of your own to pat (or even if you do) then this is the place for you. The food is probably a bit more expensive than I’d like to have paid for it, but the cake was really delicious. The joy that the little lady got from meeting all the lovely cats was totally worth it.
I was asked to take part in a blogger challenge to find Christmas outfits for the kids from the shops in the St Enoch Centre. So baby boy and I took a wee shopping trip…
I popped into Merry Go Round at the weekend to check out the preparations for the big Briggait sale. Here’s some of my favourite finds headed down there this weekend.
We’ve only ever been to Bread Meats Breads as a couple before; on those nights we’re out without children, living it up in the city… But I was having a look at the new Bread[…]
I’ve been taking baby boy along to Hartbeeps for a while now. Every week is a full on sensory experience for him; songs, bubbles, feathers, dress up… He loves it!
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!
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.
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.
We took advantage of the dry weather last night & got a bit Christmassy down at George Square. There is so much to see and do down there at this time of year, and it’s so[…]
We were out with family last week for a little celebration dinner. It wasn’t really in aid of anything, but who needs a reason to celebrate? We were meeting in town, and decided to wander[…]
If you’re in town and need something to do, GoMA (the Gallery of Modern Art is perfect for a wee indoor run around with the toddler. We were meeting a friend in town for some grub[…]
George Square is always good for a run around if you’re in town & at a loose end! Note: The pigeons are pretty gallus & will definitely follow a toddler around if said toddler has[…]
If you’re ever in need of a place to feed your little one in town, Debenhams Cafe is a good shout. They have a microwave, bottle warmer & plenty of high chairs. Next to the[…]
It was certificate day at our Turtle Tots swimming class today. That’s us completed the level 2 toddler course, and we’ve been going to Turtle Tots for over a year, so I figured it was probably[…]
This morning we went on a bear hunt. (We tried out Tall Tales at the Tron Theatre: an interactive storytelling session for kids who are walking to age 3). What good fun! My little lady[…]
We had a meal out at Darcy’s Glasgow this evening to celebrate my birthday. (33! I can’t believe it – I genuinely still think of myself as a 20 year old). Anyway, Darcy’s is a[…]
We’ve been going to Bounce & Rhyme in the Mitchell Library for the past month or so. It’s exactly what it sounds like it’s going to be: a group of parents & babies/toddlers/pre-schoolers sitting singing songs[…]
