GlasgowBaby’s been busy, busy, busy over Christmas, so apologies for the long silence. Back to business as usual today. If, like us, you’re wondering what to do with your wee’uns over the next few days until Hogmanay, here are a few ideas:

  • Wrap up warm and head down to Winterfest Glasgow. There are parent-and-toddler sessions at the ice rink in George Square on Wednesday 30 December 12-1pm, and Sunday 3 January 10-11am. Kids skate for free, and they provide cute little penguins to give your kids some stability on the ice.
  • If you want to escape from the cold, why not rediscover one of Glasgow’s many museums. Kelvingrove and the Transport Museum are obvious favourites, and have enough going on keep kids and parents interested over repeated visits. Alternatively, head to your local public library for a cosy cuddle with a book; most are open Monday to Thursday this week.
  • For 3-year-olds+, Little Red Riding Hood is on at the Arches till Monday 3 January.
  • Unleash your creativity at GOMA’s Winter Wonderland. A different activity is planned for every day this week, such as making patterned badges or a colourful lantern.

If you know of any other activities this week for ages 3 and under you’d like to share with Glasgow parents, please post a comment below!
