London with Kids Museum of Childhood

by Scandinavian mum

Living in London with kids is in many ways a great pleasure with a variety of places to explore. There is always a new area, exhibition, a play or a cafe you haven’t yet tried out.
The girls loves exploring London and last year we’ve made an agreement that we would go on a weekly outing. We have a wish list over things to do, then choose one from the list and go straight after School once a week -on our very own little adventure.

One of our favourite museums in London is The V&A Museum of Childhood located less than 5 minutes walk from Bethnal Green underground station. Open from 10:00 until 17:45 every day with free entry this museum is very much about exploring. The girls loves it as it’s so much to see and do. They have various of exhibitions and events to which is worth checking out when you plan your trip. There is a cafe if you get hungry and also a lunch room where you can enjoy your packed lunch. And a small museum shop on your way out with lovely little gifts for your child (or for their friends coming birthday parties)

Here are some of the ideas we had last year, on what do do in London with kids.

I’ll definitely try to share more of our kid friendly urban adventures with you this year. And if you have any cracking good ideas of places, galleries, activities or events in London this year that shouldn’t be missed -please do let us know!

Today’s quote

by Scandinavian mum

Amélie’s friend, Harry 5yrs, declared on a sunny afternoon as they walked together over the famous new bridge (built in the 18th century) in Ronda, Spain:

I will marry you, Amélie.
But not now! I’ll have to go to university first.

I would need to be at least 15 years old!

Father’s Day and Bubble London

by Scandinavian mum

The Scandinavian Dad has already enjoyed being served espresso, chocolate(!), strawberries, fresh newspaper and last but not least home made Father’s Day cards from the girls.

To all you fathers out there:

It’s wonderful to have a day like this -it’s only about the dad. Oh… and a little bit about fashion!
