Top Things to Do for Autumn Half Term

With the Autumn half term just around the corner, 
it's high time to get organised 
and plan fun days out for the little ones, 
{unless you want to get stuck with whiny children at home}. 

And with the weather forecast 
looking as grim as it can possibly get,  
it would not be a bad idea to plan indoor activities. 

Fear not, here are some top notch things to do in London 
with the children during this Autumn half term.

Plop the Owl at the Unicorn Theatre

We were recently invited to the amazing Unicorn Theatre, 
which is a stone's throw from Tower Bridge, 
to watch Jill Tomlison's classic children's story 
The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark. 

This engaging, sweet story is about an owl
 that goes on an incredible life adventure 
to overcome its fear of the dark.  

Perfectly suited for children 2-6 years, 
the interactive setting and seating 
successfully immerses children and adults alike 
in the story of Plop's adventures 
{the funny surprises will have you asking for more}.

Be sure to check out the other productions 
over at the Unicorn Theatre
they cater for children aged 0 to 17 
and have relaxed, as they call them, performances 
for people on the autistic spectrum. 

What's more, a theatre trip at the Unicorn Theatre 
doesn't cost the earth: children's ticket prices range from £8 to £12,  
making this a prime destination for thespian loving families.

Halloween Sleepover at the Museum of London

How much fun is this? 
Children aged 7-11 get a chance to experience first hand 
what happens inside the Museum of London 
once the doors close for the night. 

Scary fancy dress and trick-or-treating are mandatory 
and the museum's staff have prepared lots of fun activities;  
children will go on a creepy activity trail, 
will get to solve a spooky crime 
and have exclusive access to the Fire! Fire! exhibition
before tucking down for the night. 

A yummy breakfast and a film in the morning 
will surely make this an unforgettable sleepover. 
Cost is £60 per person, see more info here.

As one of the the most family-friendly museums in London, 
the Museum of London have planned 
lots of free and exciting activities for all the family. 
Be sure to check them here.
