Let’s be perfectly honest, for those of us with younger kids or babies, school holidays are a pain. Our usual classes, playgroups drop-ins stop, and our other regular haunts are suddenly overrun! But help is at hand, here are our suggestions activities for your little lambs that are on during the holidays.

Regular drop-ins/wet weather winners

The usual playgroups and drop-ins are closed (sob!), but we love these:

Hullabaloo Soft Play at the Sherriff Centre in West Hampstead is always a good bet to entertain a range of ages and is open every day except Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Monday.

As well as lovely new kids pools with great opening hours, Kensington Leisure Centre also offers Toddlers World sessions (bouncy castle plus soft play building blocks) for 0-5 year olds every day from 9:30 – 11 and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 1:30 – 3pm, and is open throughout Easter. £3.40 per child.
