One of the best things we started doing a few years ago was asking family to get the kids vouchers for days out or annual passes instead of toys. So here is a wee list of memberships & activities that we’ve absolutely loved.
Santa is everywhere in December & I think seeing him too much can sometimes take a bit of magic away. Especially for slightly older kids. So here some of my fave non-Santa related festive activities if you want to avoid the man in red!
We were asked along to the preview night of The Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry and we had the best time. Spectacular visuals, wonderful show!
Things to do in Glasgow in Autumn for families. Free stuff, outdoors, indoors, cosy times at home… Loads of ideas for activities and events this Autumn.
Robertson Park is a great little park to spend a few hours. The playpark is varied, the skate park is good, there’s open space for running around. Plus there’s a cute wee pond with swans and ducks.
Valley View at Gouldings is a great day out in the Clyde Valley. There is loads to keep the kids entertained and lots of space for them to run free.
There’s something special about a good waterfall. Here are some of our favourites for a great day out. Your next adventure awaits!
A list of wide open spaces where you can explore and take a big deep breath away from the city. Country Parks within an hour of Glasgow.
Victoria Park is one of the prettiest parks in Glasgow. It has a lovely pond with lots of birds to see, a great playpark and Fossil Grove is quite magical for the little ones.
Bellahouston Park is jammed full of art exhibits and sculptures. It’s a brilliant park and well worth a few hours exploration. The playpark at House for an Art Lover is great too. Absolutely one of our favourites in Glasgow.
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!
Cloybank Farm has some wonderfully friendly animals. They’re always waiting for the next bag of food to come along, especially the llamas and goats. It’s a great wee place to see farm animals up close.
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.
Part of the low cost series, for things to do around Glasgow that don’t cost a bomb.
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…
I needed some motivation to get us spending time outside, so a few weeks ago I decided I was going to try to visit every park in Glasgow over the next few months. And I made a big list of every park in Glasgow!
My kids don’t mind where we go for a swim as long as they can splash and jump in, but some pools are definitely better than others. So I thought I’d share our favourite “fun swimming” pools that my kids enjoy.
A hidden gem in the east end. Gruffalo trail, wooden play areas including a train station and wee adventure play area.
Cuningar Loop is a really pretty park, and will be even prettier as it continues to grow. The whole place is one big adventure, and there is tons to do. My kids adore it here. It’s well worth a visit!
