With another 2 weeks or more to fill with activities, now’s a great time to look at things to do with kids this Easter. In and around Islington and the broader London area, we’re very much spoiled for choice, with something for children of all ages.
One of my favourite local spots is Little Angel Theatre and once again this school holiday they have something for a variety of age groups. From 2 year olds upwards, there’s plenty to keep your cherubs occupied!
If larger productions are more your thing The Lion King is having an amazing run at the Lyceum Theatre. If you’ve never been, it’s well worth it, that’s if you can get tickets. It might be one of the longer running shows, but it continues to sell out well in advance. You’ve been warned!
To spend less time sitting though, how about a few frames of Ten Pin Bowling? Great for all ages, it’s sure to get the competitive juices flowing. It doesn’t matter how old you are, you still have a chance of getting a strike. Once again, locals are blessed to have an alley on your doorstep at Rowans Tenpin Bowl.
If you fancy getting creative and getting your hands dirty, why not check out Clay Time who are running Pottery Camps this Easter. I’m sure this is going sell out fast and you can go the booking page here. I didn’t know that Clay Time also runs a variety of courses as well as after school activities.
For those households where there’s just too much arguing over which movie to watch on Netflix or game to play on the Xbox, why not simply get out and enjoy some of the amazing outdoor spaces in and around London. If the weather is kind, the parks of the capital are among the best in the world.
Finally, this gem caught my eye for the very little ones and children with special needs and disabilities. Inspired by research into how a baby’s sense of sight develops and how they begin to categorise and understand colour, Kaleidoscope (Southbank Theatre) is sure to give a sense of wonderment to be enjoyed by all.
There’s simply too much to list them all, so whatever you do, I wish you the best of Easter breaks. And remember, for those revising ahead of exams, it’s about quality and not quantity, so get out there and do something else for a while!
