Heavy rain and dreich weather can turn an otherwise lovely day off with the kids into a frustrating experience for parents as they try and keep their little ones entertained.

Children can quickly become bored especially when they are cooped up in the house all day which is why finding something to do is paramount.

Luckily, Glasgow has a lot of rainy day activities available for all the family, including soft play centres and a number of world-class museums with interactive features.
