I’m a single mum and will have my 5 and 8 yo with me on my birthday. I am trying to think of places to go that the children will enjoy themselves, but so will I too! Any suggestions would be great.

  • We always like a restaurant that has play equipment

  • Perhaps a movie. Or even a pub/birsto, i know some have children play equipment. Even a park where there are bbq facilities and a playground.

  • What about a picnic in a park with facilities for the kids to have fun and you can bring other kids to join you as well. Or if you like something fancier and nice restaurant where they accept young children and sometimes they even hand out pencils and crafty items for them to be amused while you eat at the same time .

  • park at the beach- free and play equipment
    water park
    mcdonald do kid parties

  • Go to a winery. My 7 year old and 5 year old love our local wineries. They climb tree’s and hay bales. We take a footy along and all have a kick, or a Frisbee. Ring ahead and see what they have there, some have totem tennis, bocce, swing sets, fortes, cubby houses, treasure hunts, fauna reserve. They kids will love getting out and among the great outdoors exploring while you relax with a wine. You can play with them or let them play by themselves. Happy birthday!

  • A bistro that has play centre type equipment is always good.

  • there are some clubs that have playgroounds these days and nice meals, or you could go to a park that has a playground and just relax

  • maybe look into restaurants with play things in or something you all enjoying doing together movies etc

  • Well what do you like to do? My m um and I would go to the pool as a family which was lots of fun, also organsing a park date with one of your friends is lots of fun

  • A trip to the zoo or lunch at a restaurant that has a kids area.

  • A play centre is a good idea, feeding the ducks, having a picnic or aquarium, maybe a zoo

  • I’ve really enjoyed making my birthday cake with my daughter…it is inexpensive to do and lots of fun.

  • I love to take my girls to the free waterpark, we pack a picnic and have so much fun all day going up and down the slides, and the kids are knackered at the end so a quick fish and chips, shower and bedtime, nice cheap enjoyable day!

  • My kids & I love going out to the movies or a games arcade.

  • It sounds like some great suggestions here, i hope you have a great time!!!
