When Sebastian was little our days were pretty busy filled with Mum and Bubs yoga, swimming lessons, music classes, baby sensory, playgroup, toddler gym and of course coffee groups. Fast forward to now with Isabelle and (I hate to admit it) but we have done a grand total of toddler sensory classes with a coffee catch up or two thrown in. It’s not for lack of trying or wanting it is just as those of you with two children will know life with two revolves around different things – sleeps, your other child’s activities and in our case preschool pick up.
So when I was asked if I wanted to come and check out the facilities at NorthWest Shopping Mall in particular Toddler Tuesday’s with Isabelle, I jumped at the chance.
What is Toddler Tuesday’s I hear you asking..
Toddler Tuesdays are free entertainment aimed at the 2 to 5 years age group. They are run every fortnight and each session sees a different character popping along for a visit and entertaining your children with a variety of activities including story-telling, games, bubbles, balloon twisting and parachute & mat activities.
The day we went, we had a very enthusiastic Cow (I wish I would remember his name, but I was too busy watching Isabelle enjoying herself) and his pet Giraffe hanging with us. The kids (and parents) loved him. From singing and dancing, story telling, bubbles and a spot of construction – he had everyone under 5 captivated. I only took Isabelle along however, bumped into a friend while I was there and she had her 4 year old with her who was having a great time and I know Sebastian would too.
For those who are wanting to pop along with their little ones (and I strongly recommend you do); Toddler Tuesdays takes place outside Farmers (ground floor), every second Tuesday morning (10.30 – 11.30) with the next one being help Tuesday 26th September. Isabelle and I will be going, so maybe we’ll see you there (pop over and say Hi if you see us).
While you’re there, check out their awesome parents room – it is super spacious and has everything you need from individual private feeding spaces, change bays and a play space for your littlies while you’re there.
