Fun during the Easter holidays
mother nature, science


The Easter holidays are heading this way, but no matter what interests your kids, there is always something on offer. For the artists, the Children's Art School in Wimbledon have week day classes for 7-12 year olds. Each class is £48, but you can get 15% if you book before the 13th March:

Secret Messages
2nd April 9.30am-3pm

In this class kids will invent a secret alphabets, and make special objects hide their coded messages in. They will also be able to print secret messages on clothing and jewellery.

Young Fashionistas Jewellery Workshop
3rd April, 9.30am - 3pm

An award-winning costume designer from Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing on Ice will teach the children how to make charm bracelets, necklaces, earrings, hair accessories, and keyrings.

Thaumatrope


The children will learn about Victorian illusionist toys such as the thaumatrope and zoetrope, and have a go at making their own illusionary art.

Surreal Stories
5th April, 9.30am-3pm



Two professional story illustrators will help the kids design their very own illustrated book of nonsense. There will be lots of cutting and pasting, and they will use paper-cut illustration techniques, as well as writing their own nonsense poetry.

Patterns & Symbols
8th April, 9.30am-3pm

In this class your kids will learn about the significance of patterns and symbols in different cultures, then design, draw, and print their own symbols.

Mythical Art
9th April, 9.30am - 3pm

Children will create their own adventures by creating creatures inspired by myths and legends.

Extraordinary Animals
10th April, 9.30am-3pm

By the magic of collage, ordinary animals will transform into wacky creatures.

Dream Buildings
11th April, 9.30am-3pm

The children will learn about geometric shapes as they design and craft their own dream buildings.

If your kids prefer bouncing about to working with their hands, the the Dramabuds acting school in Carshalton will provide them with a memorable Easter. On the 3rd of April they are invited to the Mad Hatters Dramabuds Party for £7. Just follow the White Rabbit down his rabbit hole and enter a magical realm with party games and a very mad Queen of Hearts. Alternatively, you can join Alice at the Wonderland Drama Camp for £39. Between the 3rd - 5th April, 4-8 year olds will enjoy drama, dance, song and laughter, all ending in a special performance for family and friends.

Budding brainiacs will have a blast at Mother Nature's Science Camp with Rockin' Robots. The four-day camp costs £170 and runs between 2nd - 5th April & 8th - 11th April.

The first day will show how much Robots Rules, as the kids are taught about the history of robotics, and get to experiment with cogs and making their own gearbox devices. On the second day they will design their own air pressuriser as they learn about the science of hydraulics & pneumatics. Day three is all about electricity; the kids will learn about how it is produced and then go onto to build their own solar powered bugs, dogs, cars, and megabot. To finish off, the final day will put all these little graduate students knowledge to the test as they enter a competition to build an eco-friendly robot.

Admittedly, none of these events are very Easter themed, but I think that makes a nice change. I feel kind of embarrassed that part of me wishes that I could go to the Rockin' Robot Camp.
