A child-friendly summer in Milan

Summer in Milan

The degrees increase, the school is over and the metropolis finally relax…

After the first few days of euphoria and well-deserved leisure, the risk of boredom for our children is real. If you are going to spend summer in Milan, don’t worry: there’s plenty of things to do to fully enjoy the summer. Let’s find out!

Educational activities

Parents who work all summer can choose among a lot of different summer camps: from sports to creativity, to foreign languages… There’s something for all tastes, with a focus on school homeworks!

If you are looking for something to do for a day or a weekend you take a walk in the deserts rooms of museums, looking for workshops and events for children: no one will be disappointed.

The Museum of Science and Technology has a full calendar of activities and experiments suitable for all ages; the Milan Triennale organizes workshops to teach the little ones the basics of design; the brand new Base Milano has a rich workshop program to refresh the hot Milanese summer with original activities: from typography to gardening to programming codes.

If there was the sea…

For a refreshing dive, just visit one of the dozens pools of the city, open every day and ready to welcome everyone with waterslides, diving boards and water games.

Even if the sea is far away, there are a lot of alternatives to the pool: just a few minutes drive you can find the main northern Italian lakes, but if you want to remain in the city you can relax in the immense park around the Idroscalo, while watching the most extreme water activities. Or you can lie in the sun of the new Darsena, cooling down with a drink or an ice cream directly in the city center.

Pure fun

You know it’s good to have fun in your own garden too: so let’s organize a party with friends and colourful water balloons! The latest trend coming directly from the US is the Bunch O Balloons: a mechanism with 35 balloons connected together and to the faucet. Once they’re filled with water they close by themselves and are ready for a fight to the last drop! If you want to try it you can find it in our toy shop in the centre of Milan, where you can complete your weaponry for the summer with Nerf water guns.

At last, those leaving for holidays can bring their favourite heroes with them, choosing our suitcases and backpacks with the characters of movies and cartoons. Come to Nano Bleu toy shop and live a summer full of fun!
