Make sure to check out your local library and find out what classes and events that they run throughout the year. Your local library branch is a wonderful, free, resource for families.
All libraries host very popular, annual summer reading programmes while many of the branches run or host parent and toddler groups, storytelling sessions, arts and crafts classes, book clubs, games and activities sessions, exhibitions and so on. Not to mention the fact that there is free computer access and the option to borrow books and DVDs!
For a change of scenery, why not visit a different library to your local branch?
There are some great playgrounds for children nowadays with well designed equipment, safety features and also designed well to cater for different ages. Many are specially designed now for accessibility as well.
You probably have a favourite playground you go to regularly, why not make a list of other playgrounds near you and aim to visit them all over time? It’s an activity that is both free and good fun!
Make sure to bring some snacks and drinks or a picnic lunch.
