What's On: London's best shows for the whole family this Christmas

What's On: London's best shows for the whole family this Christmas

It's almost that time of year again... eek! We all know how fast the weeks can fly by in the run up to Christmas, and how quickly the holidays can disappear, so this year I'm determined to plan ahead and get a bit of culture into the kids over the festive season! 

I've been looking at what London has to offer in terms of family-friendly theatre over Christmas and as usual, it doesn't disappoint. Take a look below at my top picks for the season... from toddlers to teens - there's something for everyone. Perfect for a special family outing, or even a Christmas present for kids who have it all!

Easy autumn craft activity for kids

As a parent, the very mention of the word "CRAFT" can bring on a bit of a sweat. It conjures up images of paint-splattered toddlers, pipe cleaners glued to walls, and a light dusting of glitter over everything except the "masterpiece" for which it was intended! A crafty chaos if you will. As for kicking back and enjoying a cuppa while the kids get creative, well forget it!

You can imagine my glee then when a couple of Saturdays ago, I put together a little "free from" (*free from glitter and paint and pipe cleaners) craft idea for my daughters that they both absolutely loved!  If I'm honest, it looked like so much fun that in the end I couldn't help but join in too.

Here at The Mother Hub, we absolutely love autumn. The changing of the colours, the crisp mornings, cosy evenings spent sipping hot chocolate under blankets and then of course there is Halloween!
