Our 5 Favourite Places and Top Tips for Taking Out Your Little Ones

Hi guys, Since we’re called Busy Baby Happy Baby, we thought we’d give you our 5 favourite places to take the girls and our tips for taking your little ones out. Our favourite places to take our babies are.. 1. The Discover Story Centre in Stratford Discover is a purpose-built Story World and Story Garden, designed to inspire children’s curiosity and imagination. This is exactly what it does, there is a lot to do, and loads of space for children to roam, explore the boats, rockets, play on the slide, do some arts and crafts or wind down in the book…

Museum of London Docklands | Mudlarks Gallery

Last week we took the girls to the Museum of London Docklands. We never really thought of taking them to a museum, as there wouldn’t be much for them to do. But then we found out that the this museum has a interactive learning space for under 8s and we thought it would be a perfect place to take the girls. On arrival we had lunch. But instead of your usual cafe food, we opted for the rather tempting street food market right outside the museum called Kerb On The Quay. Jade had a filipino chicken satay curry and I had beef brisket…

Baby Sensory Classes | Hartbeeps

Hartbeeps is like no other baby group I have been to before. It is an interactive, multi-sensory, imaginitive play for babies and toddlers. The 45 minute session incorporates baby signing, music, baby yoga and baby massage. The production is designed to awaken and stimulate your baby’s senses. The use of props, puppetry, lighting and a sparkly parachute adds to all the excitement. Hartbeeps have their own original songs and remixed nursery rhymes. You can listen to snippets via their website and purchase their CDs. My current favourite is “Inanay” which is a traditional aboriginal song. India loves sounds and music, so…

The Bee’s Knees | Battersea Arts Centre

Hey, So earlier on in the week Jade and I set off for another fun thrilled afternoon with the girls. We made plans to go to The Bees Knees at The Battersea Arts Centre. Which is a magical, Teletubby-esque indoor play space, like you’ve never seen it before. It’s where under 5s frolic with imagination. There’s artificial grass slopes to climb up and down, books to read, blackboard tables and a vast amount of toys. There’s even a cosy cave underneath the bridge, so your child can hide from you when it’s time to go home. On arrival it was absolutely ram-packed…

Baby Cinema | Watermans Art Centre

Hey, So last week Myself, Jade and the girls set off to watch a film at an independent cinema in West London, called the Watermans Art Centre. It hosts a baby cinema screening every Wednesday at 11.30am, for parents and their babies under the age of one (no baby, no entry). When I first heard about the baby cinema I thought, really? How can you possibly go to the cinema with your baby? After doing a little bit of the research the idea had seemed to grow on me. Baby cinema screenings are adjusted to become a safe and comfortable environment for your baby.The…
