Things to do with kids in London this weekend: 4-5 January

Marsh & Parsons

You made it! The new year has begun and what better way to start than to get out and make the most of living in London with little ones. While January overall tends to be quieter time for scheduled activities there’s actually a lot on this weekend as most holiday events end on 5 Jan. So don’t miss out on any you had your eye on.

 

LAST CHANCE: Olafur Eliasson ‘In Real Life’

This was my kids’ favourite museum experience of 2019. We went twice! This is not an exhibition in which you stand back and gaze upon art – here you walk through it, walk into it, smell it, get dazzled by it, and touch it. You even help build it and your body movements reshape it. Read our full REVIEW.

When: Until 5 January
Where: Tate Modern, Bankside, SE1 9TG
Age guidance: all
Cost: £18 adults; child 12–18 years £5; Under 12s FREE

Celebrate with Cake! art activity at Museum of London

Join children’s author and illustrator Salvatore Rubbino and create with global cake. From Stolen in Germany to Banh Bo Mut in Vietnam, cakes are used all around the world to celebrate special occasions. At this drop-in activity you will create your own towering cake collage to bring traditions together. (Image from Rubbino’s lovely children’s book A Walk in Paris)

When: 4 January; 12.30-2pm, 2.30-4pm drop-in
Where: Museum of London, 150 London Wall, EC2Y 5HN
Age guidance: all
Cost: free

Dominic Harris: Imagine at Halcyon Gallery

“The art is in the delight that manifests when the viewer interacts with each piece” – artist Dominic Harris is saying what parents long to hear. Interact with art and enjoy! His mind-blowing interactive digital artworks were a huge hit with kids and adults when we visited this exhibition recently. You can make butterflies fly with the flick of your fingers, create landscapes with the wave of a hand, and engage with Snow White and her seven dwarfs.

When: Extended to run through January
Where: 144-146 New Bond Street, W1S 2PF
Age guidance: all
Cost: free

LAST CHANCE: The Twelve Rebuilds of Christmas at the Savoy

Step inside the gorgeous Savoy and enjoy a…LEGO exhibition? Yep, old world glamour mingles with new world brick builds at this festive and fun exhibition for the whole family. Be sure to pick up a trail sheet, found in the hotel lobby, so your kids can go on a hunt for each amazing LEGO creation and check them off along the way. At the end they’re rewarded with an opportunity to build their own festive creation. Best use of a hotel business centre ever.

When: Ends 5 January
Where: The Savoy, The Strand, WC2R 0EZ
Age guidance: all
Cost: free
