CULTURAL ICE-SKATING ON THE MUSEUMPLEIN IN AMSTERDAM by guest blogger Jessica

Let me introduce myself: I’m Jessica, e-commerce Buyer & Merchandise Manager at Scotch & Soda and mother of 2 sons: Pelle (3) and Morrison (1). I live together with my boyfriend and the kids on the second floor in Amsterdam, right on the border of the brimming Pijp and the fancy Museumkwartier. Dinner with the kids can be a real challenge sometimes in Amsterdam. So I made it my personal challenge to spot these restaurants. Especially the ones you also love to go to without kids are my favourites.

Get your ice-skates out of the attic, because the ice-skating track on the Museumplein has been set up again! Created in the modern pond, right in front of the ‘I Amsterdam’ sign, between the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum and on the background the Concertbuilding. A super cultural and inspiring surrounding that asks for a special ice-skating track. Continue reading

UIT TIP: THE PURE MARKET IN AMSTERDAM by guest blogger Jessica

Let me introduce myself: I’m Jessica, e-commerce Buyer & Merchandise Manager at Scotch & Soda and mother of 2 sons: Pelle (3) and Morrison (1). I live together with my boyfriend and the kids on the second floor in Amsterdam, right on the border of the brimming Pijp and the fancy Museumkwartier. Dinner with the kids can be a real challenge sometimes in Amsterdam. Because all the fun, hip places are built in a ‘pijpenlade’ (a long and narrow building), there are regularly no kids chairs or no space at all for a buggy. But they do exist, those cool places that welcome kids as well! Just test them all. So I made it my personal challenge to spot these restaurants. Especially the ones you also love to go to without kids are my favourites.

Every month on the last Sunday of the month there is a biological market with local crafts in Amsterdam. The location varies. Regularly the market is organized in the stately Park Frankendael in Watergraafsmeer, but just as often the market is set up in the Amstelpark, close to the RAI. Continue reading

BRUNCH AT LE PAIN QUOTIDIEN & A VISIT TO AQUATOPIA IN ANTWERP by guest blogger Anaïs

Let me introduce myself: my name is Anaïs (30), Lou’s mom (21 months old) and I work at the sales department of fashion company Hop Agenturen. I have been living in beautiful Brabant for five years now, with Han. But as a true Antwerp girl, my heart still skips a beat for this beautiful city along the Schelde. That’s why you can find me there almost every week, cause it feels like coming home every time!

When fall sets in, it seems I feel obliged as a mom to keep making up fun outdoor activities for my little monkey. I don’t know about you, but our son is always in the mood to be outside… in all weathers! Continue reading

STROLLING, MESSING AROUND AND CLIMBING IN ‘WOESTE WESTEN’ IN AMSTERDAM by guest blogger Myra

Let me introduce myself; my name is Myra, I’m a lawyer and mother of twe sons Just (3) and Quinten (1,5). I live in Amsterdam, with my boyfriend and two kids. Regularly I go out with the boys on friday, my day off. Of course my boys are super sweet ;) but also real boys who make a lot of noice, knocking over things, making a mess and want to run around. So you can assume that wherever I’m going and whatever I’m doing is in any case “kids proof”!

As the autumn sun is shining, there is nothing better for me than to go out with the boys and play between the leaves and mud. That’s why today’s blogpost is about nature playground ‘Woeste Westen’ in the Westerpark. Continue reading

KIDSMARINA imagine yourself being a captain in a real boat!

For anyone who follows me on Instagram, they’ve already saw this weeks out tip. But I didn’t devoted a blog to it on UrbanMoms.nl, so here it is!
I’m talking about Kids Marina. In the center of Rotterdam -in a tributary of the port- are boats which kids can sail themself. Continue reading
