April 2014 Newsletter – Lots of Easter Half Term activities for the family!

Dear London Mums

Spring is in the air and half term holidays at the door. What a great combination!

April is a challenging month for parents. Yes indeed it is in the middle of blooming Spring, a season which is glorious celebration of re-birth but also tiring as our bodies adjust to the weather change.  Plus parents have to cope with finding lots of Easter half term activities and endure either endless organisation of carers or entertain the kids themselves.

For both these issues we have put together practical solutions that hopefully will help you survive and enjoy this Month. Simply check our Easter fun stuff feature filled with ideas to keep kids entertained over Easter half term.

Check also on great egg hunt activities across London in our Activities’ pages and our Events’ calendar.

Talking about re-birth you may have noticed that we have relaunched the London Mums website and made it even more interactive than before. What do you think about it? Let us know what you like or dislike about it.
