What’s On For Kids has been slow in bringing visitors news, partly because we have been enjoying the lovely weather (last week) and some of the great stuff that’s out there to keep kids entertained during the summer - including a Glasgow Warriors Camp, The Secret Room at the Magic Festival in Edinburgh and Spectacular Jousting at Linlithgow Palace.
As ever, Glasgow’s museums are running a full programme of free sessions - some requiring booking and others just drop in - for kids and families over the summer holidays. These are great for really wet days when money might be a little tight. What’s On For Kids can’t recommend the sessions at GMRC highly enough - the craft actvities are great with lots and lots of good quality materials and guidance available. Other indoor alternatives include climbing at the Glasgow Climbing Centre
, RollerStop at their new roller rink and its neighbour Ryze.Days OutFinlaystone Estate

including survival, storytelling and vikings! This is in addition to some new activities. Visit Culzean Castle for the grand opening of their new playground, Adventure Cove
, and there are family trails and days out to be had at Robert Burns Birthplace Museum
