The thought of organising activities for your child can sometimes be daunting and it can be hard to know where to start. We’ve put together a handy guide to help you through the process of organising fun activities that your child will love.
Understanding your child’s interests
The best activities for your child will be the ones that fit their likes and their age group. It is important to be aware of their stage of development in searching for good activities, particularly when looking for activities for babies and toddlers.
Although it’s important to choose activities you think your child might like, it can also be good to try new things and see what sticks. You can use Pebble for inspiration to see what’s on near you!
How can I find the right activity?
You’ll need to find activities that fit around your schedule, location and budget. Pebble helps with this by showing timings, locations and pricing, allowing you to compare the best options near you.
You can book single or block sessions through Pebble. Block bookings often come with a discounted price per session, which can help make children’s activities more affordable.
Helping your child to adjust
Once you’ve chosen an activity and booked it, the next step for you and your child is learning about the activity, knowing what to expect and adjusting to the new routine. There are plenty of descriptions and pictures on Pebble that you can look at together to help prepare for your new adventure.
Tips for staying engaged
It’s important to support your child with their new activity by encouraging them, showing up to their performance or sports games and celebrating their achievements (however small they might seem). This will help keep them engaged and happy.
As your child grows, they may change their mind about what activities they’d like to do. This is normal, and there are always plenty of other activities out there to try!
