The long winter break is over and we’ve back to having organised activities happening all over Glasgow and some favourite places just outside of Glasgow. Personally, I can’t wait to get out a bit more often after the heavy storms, so we’re definitely looking forward to some of the events below. If you are in other parts of Scotland, please feel free to share upcoming events in the comments section or on the Nature Kids Glasgow facebook page.
