The summer holidays are well and truly over ( sad face emoji) but check out the best free things to do with kids in London this month here, keep reading for evergreen things to do with kids during the half term holidays and check back in June for our 2020 guide!
Whatever the weather, living in London means there’s no shortage of fun things to do in the school summer holidays.
We’ve rounded up our favourite summer activities for kids – anything to prevent hearing the dreaded words: “I’m bored!”
And when we say kids, we mean kids of all ages – we’ve got something for babies, toddlers, tweens and teenagers – our guide aims to keep the whole family entertained.
If you’re lucky enough to be leaving the country this summer, check our tips of flying long haul with kids.
We find it helpful to manage expectations and explain that we may not be going out every single day. Some days will mean time spent at home/in the garden and that may involve the kids entertaining themselves.
Find out why children feeling like they have nothing to do is a good thing via our guide on the benefits of creative play.
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 local park or library?
When 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!
