    We did kindergym at Noarlunga when P was 2, but the one at Seacliff is supposed to be better. We dont do any structured activities now really. We visit different parks/playgrounds, the beach, through the hills. We have a pass for Splodge playcafe but it gets pretty busy there so best going when they first open. We also have a zoo membership. I love it because it doesnt matter if you only spend an hour there or see half the animals, or you can do a whole day trip. We take our own food and have a picnic too. Havent done Monarto yet. On rainy days we visit the library - normally woodcroft (right near daycare)
    I want to get them into swimming but at $35 a week (blue dolphin or sherrifs rd) it just isnt affordable unfortunately. And I refuse to take 3 young kids to the pool on my own!

    We don't do any paid activities for DS at the moment. He's pretty busy as it is with preschool/early intervention classes/OT & speech.

    In the past we've done play groups & swimming lessons (can't remember the cost?).

    We do free stuff usually in our spare time like parks (we have a free animal/bird park close to home), go for big walks, the museum, and DS has recently started skateboarding. Later in the year when it warms up we'll be back at the pool for leisure and swimming lessons.

    They do have a corner specifically for babies. Not much room when its busy though (eg for prams) so when we go I normally wear dd2, then its easier to chase dd1. Ds is pretty good at not running off lol. There's also a good spot to see horses on Blacks Rd. Just off South Rd near the vic :-)

    Hoping to get DD into swimming lessons, but even $17 a week at the SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre is out of out price range at the moment. The only other thing we do with her at the moment is Music Fun for Everyone at Forbes Children's Centre. We used to do Babytime at Unley and Goodwood libraries on a Friday morning, but we just recent,y switched over to the Music Fun at Forbes instead.

    I will get a membership do you think she's too young for ice arena haha!
    Ice Arena has snowplay sessions once (or maybe twice) a week specifically for under 5s. Only $12 for two hours, includes adult entry and coffee/hot chocolate, bikkies for adult.

    Took our girls and they loved it. I didn't actually see one child who wasn't enjoying themselves. Adults join in, they have buckets/spades to play with and sleds to pull the kids around the ice.

    So much fun!!

    We're not in Adelaide so can't help with local stuff but my DD who just turned 2 does Playgroup $5 per session, Kindergym $10 per session and Creative Dance which was $250 for 2 terms so roughly $12.50 per week. She doesn't go to childcare. On days we don't have activities we visit playgrounds, go to the library, occasionally go to and indoor play centre or go swimming.
