Kids To Do

Week one has passed us by in Southsea when all the chocolate has been devoured (have you any eggs left?). Lots of excitement has gone and maybe¬†you are wondering what to do with your kids this week? Well, here is a roundup of what we think is a great way to spend your week! Have fun and let’s see some spring sunshine soon ūüôā

If you do have some Easter chocolate left over then go visit Crafts On the Sea who has a wonderful recipe where you can throw all your leftover chocolate pieces in and make a fab slab chocolate the whole family will want to eat! I love this website and always find lots of ideas during holiday breaks.

Continuing with the Crafts on the Sea theme they have some amazing Sea craft activities and one which I always love is walking down to the beach and collecting pebbles to paint! Check out here for more ideas

Every day allowing for weather the Southsea Model Village is open from 10.30am until 4.30pm. Great prices at £4.00 an adult and £3.00 for children.

Arty Potz on Castle Road is open every day from Tuesday and if you call them they could have places available to go spend a couple of hours painting a piece of pottery to take home. My little boy loved this last time and it was well worth the money to keep something forever!

Mini-mornings at Vue Cinema is a great way to introduce your children to the cinema and for a great price too. This week Coco is showing and Maya the Bee: The Honey Games, for £3.24 including the booking fee it is a great way to spend some time with your kids.
