Kids grow up so fast. Blink and we miss it!

Need to get the kids away from the TV and do something different?

‘Kids don’t remember their best day of television’ someone once said, and it’s stuck with me. As a mum, of two boys, living in Edinburgh, I’ve always wished there was a go-to online resource I could tap into. A mine of local information that would inspire me whenever I needed to get the kids away from the TV and just do something different. A site that could show us everything that was happening in and around our local area at the click of a mouse.

Looking for amazing kids’ events in and around Edinburgh?

There are a huge number of amazing kids’ events happening every hour of the day in our city – hidden gems right here on our doorstep that include sports classes, music workshops, storytelling sessions, active playgroups and theatre shows right throughout the year. We ask ourselves – how do we find out where they are? And, how do we avoid the endless searching? Can’t I just click on a calendar and see everything happening across the city right now?

Welcome to the ultimate go-to online resource!

Well…you’ve found what you’ve been looking for.

Kids Kalendar is the ultimate go-to online resource that allows you to see everything happening around you. No more searching, no more time spent filtering options and no more leaving notes to grandparents, nannies, childminders and friends with suggestions of where to take the kids. It’s all here – a calendar format that’s simple to use so you can plan the perfect day.

I’m so passionate about making life easier for families to find great things to do together. This website is especially for you.

I hope you enjoy it.
