Things to do with 2 young children

    Recommended Posts

    Hi, we was wondering if anyone can recommend any must do things to do that would be suitable with 2 young children, one can walk but needs to be in a push chair if long walks are involved. Is there any websites that list stiff to do with kids? Thanks

    I have a looooong list of things to do but quite a bit of it is age dependant and also where you are prepared to travel to can factor in as the list is for all over the city and hills.

     

    If you like a wander have you tried a walk through the Mt Lofty Botanic gardens (lower parts would be ok with a pushchair) for an autumn wander with the kids? Lots of leaves falling, masses of colour and its a lovely way to pass a morning or afternoon or part of the day with a packed lunch.

     

    Also lots of playgroups around, again, will depend which area you are.

     

    There are a few soft play type places around too.

     

    I'm a bit out of the loop with pre school aged kids. I'll have a look at some of the magazines I've got gathering dust and also some of the website links I've saved over the years :)

    Where do you live and do you have a car? If you're down south, like Port Noarlunga, take them to the play ground on Commercial Road, just over the bridge.

    Wilf Taylor Reserve on States Road, Morphett Vale, has a miniature train track and electric BBQ facilities. Nice walks through the tree although it's a bit dry at this time of year. New grass is just beginning to spring up. Check local paper for train run days, weekends only. Very popular park.

     

    S8000312.jpg There's also a radio controlled race car track that hubby will enjoy. An active archery club and a dog training school also share part of the reserve.

     

    At the bottom end of Christies Beach Road, there's an indoor play ground for Kids. I believe it's still operating. Of course, a walk along P.N jetty is very nice on a fine day, just keep the kids on reins if necessary.

    Lots of things to do with young kids all over the place. Play cafes are a favourite, especially between 9am and 3pm during school term time. If you let us know where you are then someone might be able to come up with things close by.

    When mine were young, I used to look through free magazines aimed at families. With technology being what it is, I thought I'd get my 21C on and try google :cute: :

    Saint kilda playground is apparently great. My partner is on about taking out 5.5 month old. :-/

     

    Ha! Its proper old skool risk life and limb old fashioned play equipment there. Or it was. They are giving it an upgrade in 4 stages. Stage one complete recently. Your LO is a bit small for it atm but I would think your partner would have a blast on all the stuff. My hubby did :rolleyes::cute:

    Give Karrara kindy playgroup a call. Their contact info is listed there. For babies to 5 years, parents and carers. Held on Friday mornings from 11am-1pm. They may run over the school hols but not sure. Worth checking to see in case.

     

    Also if you've a car and can get around, check out this community centre in Aberfoyle Park (not sure if there is one in Hallet Cove, when I was writing the suburb blurb I didn't turn one up but may have missed it, my brain was fried from links and webpages so this is the closest I can recall writing about). They have lots of thingslisted and you can always give them a call and see if anything is running. http://aberfoylecc.org/?page_id=14

     

    Also there is a nice little play parks all over Hallet Cove, some with better equipment than others. Here they are in map form :)http://www.whereis.com/search-results?query=playgrounds%20Hallett%20Cove%2C%20SA%205158&bounds=-35.0472589704586%2C138.45525915272214%2C-35.10815838807118%2C138.57550794727783

     

    You may like Hahndorf farm barn with little ones. I thought it was a bit pricey for us as we had an older child but its small enough to get round on foot, even with a toddler and its a nice place with some great views. Can have a day out and combine it with a wander in Hahndorf perhaps? On its own its probably a packed lunch and afternoon out type place, depends how long you want to stay really :)

    Hey if you go on Play and Go Adelaide (they have a website and facebook page) it is designed specifically to show you what is on it has age groups etc and places to go, it is a go send. I use it every week to decided what we will be doing at the weekend!
