This half-term, KidZania London, the indoor city run by kids at Westfield London, Shepherd’s Bush, are hosting some exciting new activities alongside their real-life adventures.
It can be tricky for parents to strike the right balance between education and fun outside of school, but two new activities at Kidzania London over the half-term have been designed with this in mind. The focus is on teaching your tribe new life skills, learning about nature, and prioritising healthy eating during the holidays. Plus, there will be treats to take away!
Sure to be a hoot for kids, the Royal Society of the Protection of Birds (RSPB) – the country’s largest nature conservation charity – will be joining the KidZania city from Tuesday 19 – Thursday 21 February. Little ones will be taught how to create their own bird feeder, which they can take home to help wildlife in their own garden, especially important at this frosty time of year. This hands-on task will inspire everyone to give nature a home, whilst giving children fun facts and top tips for keeping birds safe in the wild.
Additionally, Mavericks Snacks – the healthy, junk-free snacking brand – will be coming to KidZania this half-term from Wednesday 20 – Thursday 21 February. Kids will enter the “Snacks Labz” to create their own healthy snack, while learning about the importance of a balanced diet and healthy ingredients – all in a fun and interactive environment. Mavericks Snacks have created a whole treasure chest of snacks to fuel vine-swinging and pirate-catching adventures, and every child will get a free Mavericks on exit and an exclusive discount code for future purchases.
Of course, the long-standing activities at the KidZania city are also designed to teach kids as well as being tons of fun. This make-believe city offers 4-14 year olds exciting real-life adventures to test their skills and enjoyment in a variety of professions. Each career at KidZania is developed to teach kids essential life skills including financial literacy, teamwork and independence. The concept effectively gives kids their first taste of independence and gets the thinking about what they might want to be in the future. If your daughter wants to be a doctor or your son dreams of holding an Oscar aloft, they can try on their future with immersive, real-life challenges.
Entry to KidZania costs from £17 (15 and over, including adults), £31 (4-14 years old), £10 (1-3 years old), free for under 1s
