What’s on this weekend in and around Sheffield for kids January 19/20

Hello! How are you? Welcome to a weekend roundup and happy Wednesday. Weekend roundups feature an events guide for family friendly stuff going on in/around Sheffield plus lots of lovely day out ideas for you.

I’m going to keep it short this week, mainly because of the weather! So unpredictable… we could be basking in sunshine, jumping in puddles or building snowmen who knows… the weather keeps changing every time I check.

And so I will put a little list of weather dependent ideas below featuring 10 for indoors and 10 for outdoors. This, combined with the events going on this weekend should be more than enough whatever the weather. Also don’t forget to check the bucket lists on here and search for whatever category you’re looking for! 🙂

Most importantly, what are you doing these weekend? Let me know your plans if you have made them by commenting below.

I’m considering Hepworth on Sunday; we only went 2 weekends ago for another ink related activity and had a fantastic free day out. But, it all depends on the weather for us… if it’s wet and super cold traveling on buses/trains really makes it not great, to be honest! We are trying Capoeira on Saturday; a 3-5 year a Brazilian art form class.. I’m intrigued to see what Eric thinks.

Oh, and if you want to stay local this weekend and need something FREE to do in Sheffield don’t forget your local children’s libraries. They can be a lifesaver if it’s chilly, wet and you’re skint!
