Family ideas and activities

Activities & ideas: for pregnancy, babies & toddlers

The activity ideas, tips and advice are especially for pregnant parents and families with children under four. Some are created by Better Start Bradford, while others are from our partners and other organisations. They aim to help families explore and take part in activities that help with children’s social and emotional development, health and nutrition, and communication and language skills.

We hope these are useful and fun for you whether you’re in the Better Start Bradford area or elsewhere. If you have any ideas or activities you’d like to share with other families, let us know your thoughts through our comments form or Facebook page.

If you’re in Bradford, you might also want to look up your nearest children’s centre here, to find out about activities they run.
