Top 5 digital guides for London family days out

Wondering how the hell you’re going to entertain your easily bored off spring this Easter school holiday?  Fast approaching the world record for the number of times a family can visit the playground in one week?  Then this post is for you my friend.

I’m always on the look-out for fun stuff to do with my two tiny tyrants and now this daunting task is getting a little easier thanks to the release of several family-friendly apps and newsletters, designed specifically to help us parents find fun and engaging activities for the kids to enjoy in London town.

In need of some inspiration?  Take a peek at my top 5 digital guides…

  1. Hoop –  A free app available to download via iTunes or Google Play to help you instantly find all the best family-friendly activities nearby including thousands that are completely free.  Search for on the day suggestions or plan your weekend ahead.  You can also streamline your search according to your kids age and share with friends
  2. London’s Little Thinkers  – Featured last week on my Facebook page as part of Cabin Fever Friday, sign up for the brand new London’s Little Thinkers newsletter and receive ideas for engaging and educational days out across London from qualified primary school teacher Rebecca.  You can also follow on Facebook and Twitter
  3. UrbanExplorer – Sign up to receive an email each Thursday for their top 10 edit of fun stuff to do with the kids that weekend in London.  You will also receive a special edition for the school holidays as well as exclusive offers and competitions

Parentville  – “Your platform to easy Parenthood.”  An app (also available on iTunes and Google Play) created to help you make the most of what London has to offer.  Connect with other parents and find family-friendly places to eat and drink, as well as lots of lovely, local activities for you and your tots
  5. Bubele – Another fab free app available from iTunes which helps you find and plan activities across the UK for you and your kids aged 8 and under.  Sign up for fortnightly newsletters edited by a local mum, filled with kid-friendly activities and suggested parenting ‘good reads’ from brilliant bloggers and writers such as myself (ahem)

So the next time little Jimmy is climbing the walls and you’re wracking your brain trying to think of something to do to keep him occupied for the day, why not let one of these one of these fab apps and newsletters do the hard work for you.
