4 Things to Do in Glasgow with Foster Children

Disclosure – this is a collaborative post.

Glasgow has consistently been listed as one of Scotland’s friendliest and most beautiful cities. It is a large city with lots for adults and kids to do and see. You can visit the museums, castles, ships, farms or parks and will always find something to do. The good news is that Glasgow is a relatively inexpensive place to visit and is therefore great for exploring with your foster children. In this article, we have compiled the best things to do and see with your foster children.

The Glasgow Science Centre

The Glasgow Science Centre is recommended for everyone who visits the city and wants the children to learn something new. It is a massive facility that showcases the best science and technology in intriguing ways. It also has many corners catering to children of different ages.

The foster children will love the shows, activities, workshops and exhibits. If they want something else to marvel at, you can take them to the planetarium, where they can experience the biggest IMAX screen in Scotland.

The Glasgow Climbing Centre

If your foster children love physical activity, they will love the Glasgow Climbing Centre. It has several climbing spots that cater to kids of different ages. The centre also accommodates adults, and everyone can enjoy different activities, including abseiling, bouldering, rock climbing and roped climbing.

Once done with the day’s activities, you can head to the café inside the centre for delicious meals. The centre is open from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on the weekends and from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM during the rest of the week.

The Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery

Many parents take their children to the museum but may not realise that these places can sometimes be boring for kids. The Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery seeks to change this. This museum hosts four other distinct areas, but the main attraction is the dinosaurs. The museum has a collection that includes more than a million artefacts. It also includes several mummies, including an Egyptian one of over 2,500 years old. There is also a 17th-century Chinese map and a fossilised shark that is thought to be more than 330 million years old.

These museums and distinct spaces are very educational, so foster carers should bring their children at least once. They are also worth spending the fostering allowance on, which foster agencies like provide for such activities.

Falls of Clyde Nature Reserve

If you foster older children and teens, you can consider taking them to the Falls of Clyde Nature Reserve, which is run and maintained by the Scottish Wildlife Trust.

You can enjoy the views of a waterfall or two in the reserve, after which you can go bird-watching in the ancient woodlands. Here, you can see birds like kingfishers, wrens and owls. It is not unusual to spot a deer or two too.

Glasgow is full of interesting and educational places to bring your foster children. It is not all about learning, though, as there are lots of places to relax and enjoy nature.
