February Half Term in London

It's that {dreaded} time of the year again;  
the February half term is upon us, parents. 

Planning lots of fun activities for children 
is the only proven way to keep a bit of sanity 
and maybe to enjoy a *hot* cup of coffee. 

Luckily, London has lots going on this February for families, 
so get out your calendar and start planning!

Half-term activities in London

Family Festival at the Tate Britain

For the art loving families, 
Tate Britain's galleries will be transformed into 
a playing ground on the 11 and 12 February. 

On the menu are artist-led performances, dance, music, 
that will allow children to play with art, architecture and other children.
Plus, there will also be a giant game of catch
and a futuristic journey in 2217!

The festival is FREE of charge 
and runs on the 11 and 12 February 
from 11:00 to 16:00.

Workshops at the Museum of London Docklands

One of London's most family-friendly museums, 
the Museum of London Docklands, 
will be hosting a transport themed array of workshops 
that will have the little ones beeping with joy. 

My top picks are the Set Sail workshop, 
where children will learn about the Cutty Sark 
and build the ship's model to take home, 
and the All Aboard where we'll get to create 
a whole range of train carriages. Choo Choo!

All workshops are FREE drop-in 
and aimed at children over 5 years. 

Orchids Festival at Kew Gardens

This February half-term, the amazing Kew Gardens 
are inviting families to celebrate India's rich culture 
with an array of colourful activities. 

There will be block printing, leaf colouring, face painting 
and, of course, the massive gardens for children to run 
and admire nature at its best. 

Most of the activities are free (except from the face painting) 
and drop-in, so no need to book in advance. 
Entry to Kew Gardens costs £3.50 for children over 3 years.
