25 things to do this Spring
March 17th 2021

Spring is official in the air! Although our doors are temporarily closed and we would love to see you all here at KIDZ#1, there are still plenty of fun things you can do in the London area (and beyond!) We’ve come up with the ultimate guide of things to keep the kids entertained this Spring, whether you want to spend it indoors or outdoors.

  • Make easter nest cakes

The ultimate classic! Consisting of chocolate, rice crispies and mini eggs. 

  • Fly a kite

  • Hunt for daffodils

Head down to Hampton Court or Green Park to see the daffodils in full bloom. 

  • Make Easter cards

  • Go for a Spring walk

Take a trip to Gunnersbury Park or Richmond Park for a beautiful spring stroll.

  • Get gardening

Now is the perfect time to plant some bulbs and get the kids in on the action! 

  • Go for a family cycle

With the weather getting brighter, London has some great cycling routes. The Epping Forest circular route is a great one for the kids!

  • Make a homemade bird feeder

  • Go on a scavenger hunt
  • Grow sunflowers

  • Camp outdoors

With the days getting longer and brighter, pitch a tent in your garden and camp outdoors!

  • Discover what’s in a pond

With Spring in full bloom, investigate all the new wildlife in a local pond. 

  • Easter egg hunt

Just because our KIDZ#1 doors are closed, why should you have to miss out on some epic science experiments? There are so many science experiments you can do at home with household objects and it is a great way to have some fun and get your hands in on the action! So for all you budding Einsteins out there, here are some epic experiments you can do at home. 

Magic Milk

What you need: 

  • 1 cup of milk
  • Liquid food colouring
  • Dish soap
  • Cotton swabs
  • Shallow dish
  • Plastic container 

Method:

  1. Pour about one tablespoon of dish soap into a small container.
  2. Pour milk onto a plate 
  3. Drip a few drops of food colouring of choice in the center of the milk. 
  4. Dip a cotton swab into the dish soap.
  5. Place the cotton swab in the middle of the colors and watch what happens! 
  6. Watch over time how different things look!

Instant Ice

What you need:

  • Bottled water
  • Glass or ceramic bowl
  • Plastic tray
  • Ice-cubes

Method:

  1. Put water bottles in the freezer for two hours. Lay them on their sides for the best results, but try not to dent them.
  2. Remove the water bottles from the freezer before they freeze. (You’ll know they’re ready when crystals form when you jostle the bottles.)
  3. Place a ceramic bowl upside down on a flat surface (like a tray) to catch the water overage.
  4. Place an ice cube on top of the pouring surface.
  5. Then SLOWLY pour while instant ice forms!

Lava Lamp

What you need:

  • Water
  • Oil (baby oil or vegetable oil)
  • Alka-seltzer
  • Tall glass or bottle
  • Food colouring

Method:

  1. Fill the glass with 1 to 2 inches of water.
  2. Add your favorite food colouring.
  3. Fill the rest of the glass with oil but stop at about 1 inch from the top so that it won't bubble over.
  4. Drop an antacid tablet into the mixture and watch
