If you are in and around Chiswick next week during half term we have trawled the web to bring you a roundup of some fab activities to keep your children/grandchildren amused:
Wetland Centre Barnes: London Puddle Jumping Championships
Grab your wellies and take part in the London Puddle Jumping Championships! Children of all ages will love taking part in the puddle jumping obstacle course. The splashtastic championships will take place twice a day at 11:30am and 2:30pm and winners will be announced daily.
My Little Boarders: Skateboarding Camp
London’s top skateboarding club is back to teach children aged 6-14 to skateboard in a fun and friendly environment, beginners to advanced skaters are all welcome. All equipment is supplied so there is no need to rush out and buy a skateboard! It’s a brilliant concept because parents can choose from a half day skate camp to a full week and everything in between. We can’t recommend it highly enough!
My Little Boarders
Watermans has got half term covered: Family films, ukulele making workshops, not one but two plays (!), a creative movement workshop and the wonders who created the water play in the Science Museum basement - ‘Science Projects’ are setting themselves up in the cafe all week offering free, interactive drop in sessions where children can discover what humans are made of and what makes us tick. In fact you could probably spend the entire week at Watermans and not get bored!
Imagine Children's Festival 2019
In its 18th year the Southbank Centre is hosting the Imagine Children’s Festival. The 12 day veritable feast includes the best children's theatre, comedians, DJs, inspirational authors, parties and interactive fun for children aged 0 – 12 and their families. And yes I know it’s not Chiswick, but it looks amazing and even better half of the activities are free! See you there!

Gunnersbury Park: Children’s Illustration Workshop
Any budding Quentin Blake’s should head to Gunnersbury Park on Friday and join the illustrator Laura Carlin where they will create their very own extraordinary world out of found and everyday objects.
From all of us at Whitman and Co we hope you have a great half term!
