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.
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!
We’d highly recommend The Climbing Academy for kids. It’s great fun. We’ll be back very soon, especially if this wet summer weather keeps up!
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.
Sledging at Snow Factor was an excellent activity. Sliding down slopes and fluffy real snow… What’s not to like!?
Fitdankbaby is my favourite exercise-with-baby class I’ve done; I love how much the babies are incorporated into your workout. Baby boy loved it too!
Running, bouncing, climbing, swinging, rolling, jumping… PlayGym is probably our most looked forward to activity of the week. We love it!
We got a beautiful outdoor family photo shoot done by Jo from Mei Photography last year before baby boy came along. Here is a little look at the pics.
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!
I just finished up with my lovely Yogabellies class. Not only was it was the most relaxing part of my week, but it was quite nice to be in a room full of pregnant ladies who were all having similar experiences to me.
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’ve been going along to aquanatal at Scotstoun Leisure Centre for a few months now. I really enjoy it: I get to meet people; I don’t need to do toddler bedtime; and of course it’s a little bit of exercise.
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[…]
The little lady and I just finished a block of cooking classes with Totnosh in Barrhead. She loves helping in the kitchen anyway, but she had a great time trying out new foods and bossing me around as her helper. Great fun & lots of new ideas for toddler food!
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.
We’ve been trying to make the best of some pretty crappy weather lately and ventured out to Whitelee Windfarm in Eaglesham. It’s rugged & picturesque, and the wind turbines are pretty grand up close. They also have a wee cafe for a post-walk warm up.
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.
