The summer holidays look very, very different this year.
The things we did in the heyday that was 2019 (and without a second thought) now require military style planning.
Social distancing, masks, long queues – all these things have to be considered before you round up the kids and venture outside.
It’s worth keeping an eye on the official advice from the government as things are likely to change over the coming weeks and months, and venues may open, close and/or reduce their activities as a result.
That said, there’s still plenty of things to do in London with the kids over the summer holidays.
This summer will probably mean a lot more time spent on activities at home/online but after four months, we’re pros at that right?
We’ve rounded up our favourite summer activities for kids in an effort to prevent hearing the dreaded words: “I’m bored!”
That said, find out why children feeling like they have nothing to do is a good thing via our guide on the benefits of creative play.
And when we say we’ve rounded up things for kids, we mean kids of all ages – we’ve got suggestions for babies, toddlers, tweens and teenagers – our suggestions aim to keep the whole family entertained.
Don’t put too much pressure on yourself either – especially if you work from home – often times the kids are happy to potter about in the same room as you, they can’t always (and often don’t want to) have every minute of their day planned or chock full of activities.
Think local – what’s going on in your nearest park or library?
If you do go out for the day, always remember to bring your own water and healthy snacks. Nothing makes kids more hungry or thirsty than walking past a shop!
