Fun activities with and for babies (Part 2)

Baby Activities Part 2

Here are some new ideas on what you can do with your kids in Toulouse.

INDOOR PLAYGROUNDS

There are several indoor playgrounds in Toulouse and the surrounding areas. They are great in winter of course, when it is freezing outside, but don’t forget it gets really warm in Toulouse in summer, so you might want to find a cool place away from the sun.

I have not tried them all, but from what I can see on their website, they all look similar. The entrance fee is usually around 7 – 10 € and they are generally open on Wednesdays, Friday afternoons and on the weekend (check the website for opening hours).

GROUPS

Marcher à quatre pattes (Beauzelle, Tournefeuille, Cornebarrieu)

A international group for parents and their children from age 0 – 3. Fabienne is the organiser of the group and is really lovely.

There are three types of meetups:

  • Baby Massage (Age 0 – 1)
  • Playgroup with singing and story reading (Age 0 – 3)
  • Cooking or crafting classes (Age 2 – 3)

If you would like to get more information on the exact dates, locations and fees, please contact: marcheraquatrepattes@free.fr

Deutsche Krabbelgruppe (Cornebarrieu)

A playgroup for German parents and their babies. They meet every Wednesday from 9:30 – 11:00 am in the Espace Jules Ferry, Impasse Buffon in Cornebarrieu.

Espace rencontre parents / enfants (Blagnac)

There is a meetup group every Thursday morning from 9:00 am-12:00 pm in Blagnac. You can just pop by (no registration needed and it is also free of charge).

CINEMA

Did you know that you can go to the cinema with your baby? American Cosmograph in Toulouse (next to Galeries Lafayette – 24 Rue Montardy) and Utopia 31 in Tournefeuille (Impasse du Château) show movies for parents with their babies regularly. A great way to watch a movie and meet other parents! Check out their homepages for information on the exact days, movies and prices.

SWIMMING

Bassin d’apprentissage Blagnac

Here you can have some fun in the water with your child from age 3 months to 8 years. The pool is heated and they have lots of toys, a slide, water mats and many more fun things!

Association des Bébés Dauphins Toulousains

If you are looking for a regular swimming activity for your child check out this association. They offer swimming classes for children (age 0 – 3) in four different locations in Toulouse.

Have fun,
