Blossom

Baby it's cold outside

    Recommended Posts

    So it's getting colder and wetter.

    Any tips on things to do with a 6 month old that are indoor. She's just a bit too small for play cafes etc I think.

    The library does singing group thingys which is lovely. Anything else I'm missing to get us out of the house without blowing away?

    Swimming. In an indoor pool obviously. And shopping. Can't think of anything else I used to do with mine when they were that age, although it is nearly ten years ago now.

    I'd second swimming.

     

    Also I used to just head to local play groups. I've noticed some here advertise specific baby ones aimed at 12 months and under and some the 0-5 or 2 and older.

     

    Ball pool at home can provide hours of fun. I recall sticking ours in toddler paddling pool and filling it with balls. Also the old sensory box of items. I used a heap of kitchen utensils, and old pan for him to bash and things like a sponge, scouring pad and so on. Used to bring it out now and again rather than just leave it lying around, seemed to keep it fresh then.

    Do you have a health visitor type person? They should be able to let you know what's going on around where you are - just mums and baby groups where your little one can roll around and you can sit and chat, possibly your local church hall will run a group - with no religious expectations (hopefully, unless you want it), and again I don't know much but down here we have a couple of Children's Centres which offer programmes - I know in the UK Children's Centres were excellent for having loads of stuff going on (I was a childminder and used to avail myself of their services a couple of times a week) but I don't know if here it's the same or if they're for targeted sections?

     

    I'm not sure where you are, but if it's really just to get out of the house for a few hours could you perhaps catch the tram or bus into the city and browse the Central Market stopping for coffee somewhere when your little Blossom needs a feed? I always felt catching public transport made it more of a trip than just bundling them into the car.

     

    I too was going to suggest swimming but got well beaten to that!
