Fun Things to do with your Baby for under $10 in Melbourne's West

Do you find yourself wondering what to do with your child? Here is a list of ideas for things to do with your baby in Melbourne's West that won't cost you a fortune.



I'm a first time mum and while I will admit there is always something I could and should be doing while I am on maternity leave, most of the time I am bored with the options. There's always housework, washing, folding, cooking and cleaning to be done...but that's boring! I'd rather spend my time with my baby doing something fun. But I need to budget carefully...we are down to one wage after all for the time being.

So what can we do that's less than $10 that will get us out of the house, but is good for the children as well? I see so many mums and dads hanging out at the shopping centre with their kids...surely there are budget alternatives?

This is what I have found so far:

1. Early Years Programs - Wyndham City Library.
Cost: FREE.
Details:
Organised based on age groups, all Wyndham City Council Libraries offer 30 minute Early Years Programs. My daughter is 10 months old so I attend a session called 'Baby Time'. We sit in a circle with our little ones and sing songs. Its great fun. The kids love it and the parents get to meet new people and watch our little ones interact with others their age. Cuteness overload!

2. Swimming Pool
Cost: approx. $7.
Details:
I have taken my daughter to our local indoor pool. Not for formal lessons, just for a float and kick with her mumma. She loves it! I always go during school hours so its not too noisy and overwhelming for her. She loves being in the water and its a great way for us to bond with so much skin to skin contact.

3. Local Park
Cost: FREE
Details:
I am lucky enough to have 4 parks within walking distance each offering something different from a man-made lake with ducks and pelicans on occasion to large grassed areas (watch out for dog poop) and of course, the ever appealing play equipment! Why not pack some snacks and a picnic blanket and head out to your local park for a change of scenery. You may be lucky enough to bump into another parent and child looking for some company.

4. Hijinx Playcentre - Point Cook
Cost: $5 for under 2s.
Details:
2/6 Wallace Ave, Point Cook 3029.
This indoor playcentre has a large area including a ball pit for the under 2's, a huge jumping castle and indoor play equipment for the older ones. My daughter loves navigating her way through the ball pit and climbing on the soft mound in the under 2s area.

5. Breathe Cafe Play Restaurant - Melton
Cost: $6 per hour, per child aged 1 and above in the supervised play area!
Details:
354 High Street, Melton 3337.
Breathe is appropriately named as it is a beautiful, clean cafe/restaurant that offers two play areas that are supervised...yes you read that correctly, supervised play areas for you to check your child into so you can, you guessed it, BREATHE!
