Every weekend parents and grandparents face the same dilemma.. what to do with the kids! It may be sunny, cold, rainy or snowy but still the weekend  presents the problem of HOW to get the children interested in something other than computer games or the TV.

One of Ask Granny’s favourite channels for finding interesting things to do and see in and around London, especially at Christmas time, is the Urban Explorer website, geared to appeal to children and grandparents searching for unique and up to date happenings in and around London.  The ten fun and interesting  events that Urban Explorer writes about each week are well researched and do not feature any advertised or paid for content.

You need to subscribe (free) to their newsletter but it is well worthwhile!

Ask Granny will publish  ideas for weekend activities with children and grandchildren.
