One small step for man, one giant leap for toddler kind. London is a big city, especially for people with little feet. But with you holding their hand, they can become toddling tourists for a day.
Toddle in the City was inspired by one little boy with is camera. When the founder, Yat, was with her son in London, she was fascinated by the pictures he was taking; they showed the city from a toddler's perspective, and helped him express the ideas that he was yet unable to express vocally. Yat decided to make up a photography treasure hunt with him, which they enjoyed so much together, that she turned it into an activity that all families can enjoy.
Aimed at tots aged 3-6, Toddle in the City will cost £15 to join in, plus an additional £5 to develop any pictures taken. A digital camera is provided for each child, but participating adults will have to provide their own.
Yat has organised two upcoming treasure hunts. There is DIY Toddle on the 25th May at the National Army Museum, where the toddlers will search for clues amongst interesting items such as soldiers' uniforms and medals. You can drop in at any time between 10am-4pm to take part.
Then from the 1st June, you will be able to book a Shoreditch Toddle, which takes place every Saturday & Sunday at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm. Discover the area's heritage, from its old playhouse to its marketplace.
