Thinking ahead for some ideas to keep the kids entertained this February half term? Fear not, there’s plenty going on in Surrey and London, here are some of our indoor ideas if the weather takes a turn.
For the rainy days
Chobham Adventure Farm
Just recently opened, this is a great place for little ones and older children to burn off steam in a safe environment. The indoor area has 2 play frames, one for under 2’s and another more challenging frame for children and adults. Look out for the vertical death drop slide, my little one took a shine to this slide, I could barely watch!
There is also an outdoor play area with a massive sandpit with slides and construction site, 2 bouncing pillows and a small and large frame with zipwires. In addition, they will be opening an animal farm section this year. There is also a restaurant which serves tasty homemade food – the pizza and cake get the thumbs up from me!
Where: Bagshot Road, Chobham, Surrey, GU24 8DB
Price: 6mths -2yrs £2.50, children (3yrs -18yrs) £6.50, Adults £4
Opening Hours: Open daily throughout the year from 10am to 5.30pm
The Lightbox – Learn to Paint with Watercolours (12 – 16 year olds)
Taking inspiration from the ‘Turner in Surrey’ exhibition, your child will have the opportunity to learn how to use watercolours to paint their own landscape. Your child will learn new techniques and produce a final watercolour painting on paper which would rival Turner’s work. All materials are included, but don’t forget to bring something to take the masterpiece home in. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult. Accompanying adult goes free. Advance booking is essential – click here.
Where: The Lightbox, Woking
When: Thursday 15 February 2018, 3.00pm – 4.30pm

Soak up the atmosphere at the Southbank Centre and enjoy some of the best children’s theatre and literature, where some of the screenings, workshops and activities are free at the annual Imagine Children’s Festival. There is lots to do for ages 0 – 12. Be tickled by Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes, wriggle along to dance-theatre Tidy Up and join radio personalities and debut authors, Greg James and Chris Smith, for an action-packed Kid Normal event.
