We had a wee day just me and the boy recently, so we took the train into town and headed to check out Jungle Rumble on Bath St.
Sports & Active Play
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!
A list of hill walks within driving distance of Glasgow, all suitable for little legs. Some higher ascents, some longer distances, some easier & some a bit more tricky.
Since the forecast is pretty chilly as far the eye can see, I thought I’d write about a few fun, indoor places we love. First up is one of our favourites for some sweaty bouncing: Inflatanation. This full warehouse down in Kinning Park is basically one big bouncy castle. There’s a massive ball bit (currently …
Here are a few of our fave indoor spots to hang out & play & get you through the summer rain. Rainy day fun in Glasgow. Some alternatives to soft play…
Everyone likes free stuff, don’t they? Well kids can get in free to a bunch of big attractions with Scotrail! Here’s how & some suggested places to visit!
The little lady and I had a wee mummy daughter date & went along to iMOTO X, Europe’s biggest indoor electric motorbike track. We had the BEST time!
Outdoor playgroups & forest schools in Glasgow for kids 0 – 12. Climbing trees, playing with sticks and mud, den building, marshmallow toasting, all the rustic fun!
Reidvale Adventure Play Area is a really wonderful wee community driven place right in the heart of Dennistoun. There’s so much for kids to do and loads of space for them to just play and be kids.
We went to check out Rollerstop a few weeks ago and we all had a fantastic time. The disco was great fun, and the staff were absolutely amazing. Our new favourite place for a rainy day!
We went along to check out the new inflatable play area at Flip Out Glasgow as a wee after school treat the other day. There are a ridiculous number of things to bounce on and we had so much fun. All of us!
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!
These are our 10 of the best family days our near Glasgow: a list of the places that we love to go and spend the day. Our Top Ten. The places we’ve returned to again and again. Some of them are free; some of them are most definitely not. Some of them are suited to rainy days and some are better for the dry days we’ve had so many of recently. Hopefully if you visit any of them, you’ll love them as much as we do!
If you get the chance, go to Glasgow Green and see all the brilliant and completely free stuff there is to do as part of the Glasgow European Championships 2018! Its a fantastic day out!
Park Lives is back until the 25th of July and there are a whole host of activities on in various parks around Glasgow. We checked out a lovely little Baby Ballet class in Victoria Park and the kids had great fun. See what’s on – it’s all FREE!
We all really enjoyed the Mini Flippers session at Flip Out. I think you forget as an adult how much fun jumping actually is! The kids had an absolute blast and we were all exhausted by the end. At £4 per person for almost unlimited time it’s great value too. Flip Out is definitely our favourite trampoline place in Glasgow so far!
We checked out the latest addition to Soar at intu Braehead today; The Big Slide at Climbzone! It’s the worlds biggest indoor slide and it’s so much fun.
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.
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 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).
