Galerie umění pro děti translates as Art Gallery for Children and that is exactly what it is. Kids are encouraged to be themselves, they can touch, talk and even create and alter the art installations that artists have created. Currently, the gallery is running a show featuring contemporary art pieces made completely out of recycled materials, this show will run until 17 June and then be replaced by a new series of works.
Jazz Dock is a waterside club on the riverbank directly opposite Detsky Ostrov Playground (Children’s Island). Every Saturday from November to May it offers children’s theatre shows followed by craft or performance activities. This is a great last-minute option to consider on the weekend as tickets are purchased just prior to each performance.
Three floors with life size replicas of moving and roaring Dino’s opened on February,1st 2012. It’s the nicest DIno park out of the 5 Dino Parks in Czech Republic. This one is the biggest and the only one indoors. Which means you can visit this one during a cold weather. Liberec is just over an hour drive from Prague on freeway. It has an Indoor Playground as well and you can combine it with a visit to the IQ Park.
Yoga guru Lucie and well-known party entertainer Vanessa have a fun afternoon programme planed for this Sunday. How does kids yoga, a kids art and craft session and a fairy tale drama workshop sound? The kid’s afternoon runs for 3 hours and costs a reasonable 250czk per child.
I decided to tip you on this Indoor Playground although it’s in a furniture store. We’ve been going there just to eat and visit the free playground. In the past 3 months we’ve been guests at 2 birthday parties hosted in a Birthday Room right next to the Playground! I have to say it wouldn’t be my first choice for a Birthday venue but the kids had fun. I’ve also been pleasantly surprised by the menu in the restaurant and I know that many people go there just to eat.
In Prague 2 there is a great little ‘one stop shop’, by no means the exclusive domain for women. Sole2Soul offer foot and (lesser known) facial reflexology. Their treatment room is in Head Hairdressing - a salon with 5 professional stylists for men, women and children plus they now offer spray tans - perfect for special occasions and beach holidays.
For Valentines Day read on for a special offer!

Kavarna Maluj is a paint your own pottery studio for painters of all ages. Both a pottery studio and a café located in a sunny shop in Vinohrady, it is a fun way to spend an afternoon with your kids or an evening out with other moms.
It was on a rainy day in July that we paid our first ever visit to the much promoted and praised Technical Museum which, following lengthy renovations re-opened its doors to the public at the beginning of 2011.
Right after our family lunch at Ambiente Pizza Nuova with Indoor Play Area (you need to make a reservation at least 1 week ahead) we went to check the NEW Indoor Playground at Kotva called Kuliskov. So now there are 2 Indoor playgrounds at KOTVA right next to each other. This new one is a nice Indoor Play Area with lots of new toys and space to run around in.
I think we need to write about more Kid’s Bowling places in Prague. I have covered one for you already, Prague 4’s: Fantasy Kids Prague Bowling. Planet Bowling is in Prague 5. It has kids’ alleys with barriers and you can also hold kids’ birthday parties here.
