As little ones get older it can be a welcomed relief for parent and child to get out and about, making new friends and getting some fresh air. There are so many wonderful activities you can do with your children. In the Wellington region there are activities almost every day of the week for little or no money.
A lot of the churches in the Wellington region offer music groups most mornings of the week; these often include morning tea and cost a gold coin donation. Check with your local church or the local paper for music groups. The local libraries also offer a variety of activities for a range of ages on different days of the week.
The regional city councils have been fantastic at installing play grounds all over the area. Most streets have a play ground generally suited for older children but littlies can enjoy these with some help.
Most children love animals so a trip to the park to feed the ducks is a family favourite. Staglands or Wellington zoo are fun for the whole family big and small. Who doesn’t love to see and cuddle some cute animals? Other great places are Te Papa, Junglerama indoor play centre, the beach, Capital E offer fun activities for a day out. For even more fun take the bus or train. Children just love going on the train.
