Free museum and science centre sportlov programmes

Prova På - Story Yoga at Littlebearabroad Studios

In collaboration with fröyogis, welcome to Littlebearabroad Community Studios for a morning of playful and imaginative yoga. Story Yoga is a fantastic way for kids aged between 3-6 years to engage in early years yoga, mindfulness and expressive play. Try it out over sportlov for only 70 SEK.

“Sår frön för livet” / “Sowing seeds for life” is at the core of Gayathri Lindvall’s fröyogis concept – planting tidbits of wisdom in children through play, mindfulness and storytelling. Her popup kids and family yoga sessions aim to increase your child’s wellbeing and enhance your parent-child relationship.

Sportlov at ARTIPELAG

At Artipelag there is plenty of activities for  younger audiences as well as child adapted facilities. Afterall, it was started by the founder of Baby Björn, Björn Jakobson.

Painting workshop

Follow the steps of this year’s recipient of the Fredrik Roos Art Grant of 2020, Siri Elfhag, and let yourself be inspired by mystical and enigmatic stories flowing between dream and reality.


Meeting point outside the Studio, one floor down from the entrance hall. The workshop is free and starts at 11.30 am.  Maximum number 10 children, from 7 years onwards. No pre-registration required and first come first served applies. One adult needs to be present together with the child during the introduction.


The workshop is conducted every day during the winter break – Monday February 24th until Sunday March 1st.




You probably want some place to take the kids for the WHOLE DAY… well, we can’t recommend Tom Tits Experiments enough. It really will take you THE WHOLE DAY to enjoy every single exhibit, experiment, show and outdoor activity. And, don’t skip out on their delicious lunches (reasonably priced, too).


With four floors and an open park chocked full of different kinds of experiments and science games, how could you not be tempted to fall in love with science and technology.




Out and about, around Stockholm

Weather is looking good for sportlov in Stockholm 2020. A bit chilly but nothing an extra jumper won’t fix. Why not hit up some of the beautiful national parks and nature reserves around Stockholm to take in those first few glimpses of spring. Blow the winter cobwebs away and get some fresh air.


Use Littlebearabroad’s top 10 list of family day trips to find some of our recommendations for outdoor adventures. You don’t even need a car to get to most of them. Public transport all the way!
