Got school holiday anxiety? The London Mummy picks top websites for little people.

‘I’m bored,’ said nobody after looking online for half-term and holiday plans. To discover what’s on for families, we turned to Lucinda Robins, founder of popular website The London Mummy, an insider's guide for busy parents. She gives us six websites to help plan family activities.

LONDON'S LITTLE THINKERS
www.londonslittlethinkers.co.uk


Created by a primary school teacher, the website London’s Little Thinkers explodes with fun yet educational ideas around the capital. Whether it’s a family rave, Lego workshop or cookery demo you crave, her newsletter will keep you in the know.

BUBELE APP
bubeleapp.com


Find something for the little critters to do via Bubele, a website and free app picking up local and national events for under eight-year-olds. Customise the app to your child’s area and receive emails tailored to you listing kid-friendly shops, playgrounds, museums and attractions.

CURIOUS MUM
www.curiousmum.co.uk


Heard of The Giant’s Loo Roll? Neither had we. It’s a funny play in London this month. And there is lots more where that came from. Look to the Curious Mum website for exhibitions, plays and workshops to amuse your children.

HOOP
www.hoop.co.uk


If you are flying by the seat of your pants during the holidays, download Hoop, enter your password and immediately see what is going on around you, there and then. So extensive, I find this app super useful when I have no plans.

NOT ANOTHER MUMMY BLOG
notanothermummyblog.com


One of my favourite posts from the great blogger Alison Perry is '50 Things To Do in London Before You Are 5'. I’m still working through them. It is worthy of a look.

FAMILY DAYS TRIED AND TESTED

This is a wonderfully imaginative list of ideas to keep your little ones occupied at home without breaking the bank. I stumbled across this post two years ago and I still revert back to it.
