Things to Do with Babies and Preschoolers around Westmeath

Things to do with Preschoolers in Westmeath


Here are some suggestions of things to do with preschoolers in Longford.  If you have others, I would love to hear from you!

Visit the playground!  There are some excellent playgrounds in Westmeath and most of them have dedicated sections for smaller children.

Visit the library!  The junior section of the library is a great way to spend an hour or two reading and choosing books, also your pre-schooler can join the library and choose their own books to borrow.  Some libraries also host weekly story time and/or a parent and toddler group.  Check out your local library for upcoming events and news.

Go swimming!  Local pools in Mullingar and Athlone Regional Sports Centre.

Sign up for a class!  Check out our list for little people – its never too early to pick up a hobby!

Visit a play centre where you'll find a dedicated soft play area for toddlers, and some have different activities for toddlers on certain weekday mornings.

Join a local Parent & Toddler group!  There are many local groups throughout Westmeath that meet weekly.  Parent and Toddler groups are a great way of young children to mix with children their own age and for parents to meet other local parents!

If you have a free day mid-week a big advantage with getting out and about with preschoolers is that you can visit places at “off peak” times when older children are at school and popular places aren’t as busy!

Go for a walk!  There are many woodland walks in Westmeath– perfect for preschoolers to run, collect leaves, stones, etc. and play hide and seek.  Let us know your favourites.

And here we also have some ideas for entertaining preschoolers at home.
