Activities for rainny days – Part 1

Hi there! Most of kids are on school holidays during this week and for some of us this means we’ll have to desperately find out funny and interesting activities to entertain them. As the weather doesn’t invite us to outdoor activities, even more difficult it is to find out what to do.

So I though about sharing with you some of the activities I’m planning to do with my 4 year old boy:

1. Go to the cinema20131029-000022.jpg

In fact, we already checked this one earlier today πŸ˜‰ as we head to Utopolis to watch Turbo 3D. I must admit it was quite funny! Just imagine a snail who always dreamed about becaming a champion racer! The dream becames true when by accident he swallowed nitrogen! πŸ˜‰

There are a few options out there. Just search for a film with the age restriction ‘EA’ (Every Age) so you won’t have any problem taking a young child to watch it. As it was explained to me a few months ago, as for EA films, it’s up to the parents to decide if the child should watch the film or not!

2. Go to a swimming pool
It is a fact: there are fantastic heated swimming pools in Luxembourg. Just pick one! My favourite ones are Syrdall Schwemm in Niederanven, Les Thermes in Strassen and the Krounebierg in Merch.

3. Go visit a museum

There are several options in Luxembourg, but when it takes to kids-friendly museums there are two that everyone recommends: LuxLait Vitarium in Roost and the Tramways and Bus Museum of Luxembourg City in Hollerich.

I’m planning to check out both of them soon so I can write a review.

4. Go to an indoor playground
ZigZag in Bertrange, YoYo in Howald, Indyland in Foetz seem to be the most well knowned playgrounds

5. Go to the animal shop

Are you desperate for a cup of coffee somewhere else than home? Then why not driving to La Belle Γ‰toile Shopping Center, take a seat at the Cactus coffee shop next to Area (left end side of the building) while the kids play in one of the animated little cars nearby. Then, to make the little ones even happier, go along the corridor and stop by all the other animated cars (there are at least five of them!). Finally, take the stairs up (or the elevator) and head to the ‘Josy Welter’ animal shop (next to Ernst book shop). The kids will simply love to admire all the little animals at the renovated shop.

6. Grocery Savenger Hunt

Do you have grocery shopping to do and need to bring the children along? Then do some simple homework to make it fun for them! I’m sure it will be worth it! πŸ™‚ After finishing your grocery shopping list, google the images of some of the items and print it in a piece of paper. Then, when you arrive to the supermarket, just give it to your kiddos and tell them about the important mission they have! πŸ˜‰

7. Simply have fun at home
Why not carving a pumpkin? Or doing a really big drawing (simply cover your kitchen table with paper and let the children draw)? Or do some face painting? Or play dressing up your favourite characters?…

Just a quick note: as this Friday is a holiday, please check in advance if the places are opened.

I hope to be able to share more ideas with you very soon! πŸ™‚
What about you? Please share!
