Last week I took the kids out to Edinburgh International Climbing Arena at Ratho for a little fun in the newly opened soft play Scrambles.
The Sketcher twins can’t get enough of soft play, and tear around in circles getting more and more hyper – and bright red until exhausted they return to down a juice before heading back into the padded jungle of fun!
I am a little more relaxed about letting them go now (I used to follow them in and to be honest have a great time trying to squeeze through the squidgy mini doors and over the bouncy slides) and with the new found time I thought I would try to sketch the children.
The newly reopened Scrambles area at EICA had three separate sections depending on the age of the children, (up to 10 years) which is a great idea as in many places this is combined and the toddlers can get clattered by the speedy older ones.
There is also a couple of cafe areas so plenty of space to relax and a the same time exhaust yourself just watching the little ones burn off their energy!
I managed a couple of sketches but could of spent a lot more time there trying to capture the movement, it reminded me of drawing the squirrel monkeys at Edinburgh Zoo, especial when they were crossing the rope walkway!
