With long summer days and the school holidays ahead, we’ve been rounding up our favourite ways to keep your little Londoners entertained and engaged. So get ready for a packed summer!
Marina Fogle sets out on a quest to install a trampoline in a London garden while Leonora Bamford plans a colour-themed activity walk that will take in the seasons finest blooms! For little bookworms, we’ve selected our favourite summer reads and we profile the brilliantly talented children’s author Lauren Child.
For those staying in the city this summer, London’s newest theme park, KidZania, will be top of the to-do list. Whether your little one wants to attempt some radio presenting, aircraft piloting or even midwifery, there is a whole world of work waiting for them!
Fashion is never far from the agenda here at Little London HQ, and we’re thrilled to be talking to one of our favourite childrenswear designers Jools Oliver about combining her designing work with bringing up four children. Hats off to her!
As London Fashion Week gears up to celebrate the global icon that is Minnie Mouse, we can’t help but notice Mickey and Minnie everywhere at the moment! Our contributing editor Carole Middleton has been busy translating this enduring trend into a classic Disney party.
And to finish, a nod to those more nostalgic holiday moments – often a time to get together with wider family, for days out or longer weekends and watching a tribe of cousins running around together, entertaining each other and generally bonding. Don’t miss father-of-two Alex Payne’s take on the role that cousins can play in a happy family dynamic.
As ever, there’s lots more for you to get stuck into. From our fashion picks and ‘Back To School’ shopping pages to our top tips on education, health and food. You’ll be ready for a brilliant summer and ready for the start of term.
