Life with kids in St George
A selection of some of the best rainy day ideas for entertaining kids in St George, Sydney - Rockdale, Hurstville, Kogarah, Oatley.
Staring down the barrel of a day with youngsters while it pours outside? We've got just the places for you to take them before cabin fever sets in!
St George's newest indoor play centre is also one of the Biggest Indoor Inflatable Playground in Australia!! So we can;t think of a better place to escape a rainy day then here! It's not just for the kids -BIG kids (adults) are encouraged to have fun with the young ones also. Open only on weekends during the term and all week during the school holidays.
And why wouldn't you want to head to Bunnings Rockdale with an amazing play structure like this? It's indoors and on weekends you can grab a sausage sizzle. Roam the aisles with the kids and talk with them about tools and plants. It's seriously the most perfect wet weather destination with kids.
The toy library received an amazing array of new toys not long ago, and little people can borrow up to two toys for three weeks. Going to Hurstville Library to make their selections will be a wonderful activity in itself on a rainy day and then getting them home with new toys will create more rainy day happiness!
There's nothing better than books and music when the weather isn't great for going outside and most St George libraries offer Story Time and Rhyme Time for families. To make it super easy for you we've put together a list of all the kids library sessions happening in St George on weekdays! This is one to bookmark ;)
At Shrimps Play and Party Centre, there's a large space for under-threes, and the over-threes areas aren't too high and overwhelming. The slide into the ball pit is great fun, with the added bonus that the size of Shrimps is big enough for the kids not to get bored but small enough so you don't have to chase after them. Now that's something that every parent and carer will love on a rainy (or sunny!) day.
Yes really! Indoor swimming is a perfect wet weather activity. Most kids love it and you can get out of the cold or inclement weather, and into a warm covered area where everyone is happy. Some great options are Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre and the Sans Souci Leisure Centre.
