Mega Bristol rainy day activities for kids round-up

Looks like the weather’s not going to be great this week. Whether you’ve got babies, toddlers, one, two or five kids that aren’t at school this week, here’s some ideas for things to do:

We also love the pre-school gym and soft play which is five days a week at the Bristol Gymnastics Centre in Hartcliffe.  Brilliant fun for £3.50 from  10am-12pm. Look at that bouncy castle!



We also tried out Avon Valley Adventure Park on Saturday. I loved the animals and the working miniature train tracks. There is a huge, and I mean huge outdoor playground for older children and several smaller ones for littler kids. There is a cavernous soft play, which I personally really didn’t fall for. It was very, very busy, had a small and unprotected toddler area which was full of out of control older kids, and it was boiling hot. But, I think during weekdays, it would be excellent and much quieter.

What Bristol rainy day activities for kids do you have?
