stuff that kids love
If you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain
Welcome to all new subscribers!
It’s raining cats and dogs.
Never mind. The lush vegetation will be nice to look at. And on the bright side, at least we don’t live in Townsville, Australia.
Now we can all enjoy indoor activities such as these ones handpicked from the app.
There’s a new version of Kinfo: an improved way to add recommendations. And we can let you know when a friend is joining. Just invite them to sign up to Kinfo.

When it’s a case of sink in the puddles or swim, we say swim. A jaunt along the M3/M4 leads to Bracknell’s leisure pool, for slow and fast moving rapids, a bubble pool, cascading volcano, tiny tots area, fountains and a pirate ship with water shooting cannons, no less. Oh and FIVE slides. “Perfect inset day outing,” says a dad of 3.
If you’re enjoying the sound of rain pounding against your windows, this could be a truly immersive experience in bad weather! If the views are dull, the cake won’t be. Nor will the fern and fig tree terraces dotted with flourishing flowers from far flung corners of the globe. This free-entry vista of the capital offers a better view of the Tower of London than the Shard. Grab the remaining half term slots. Recommended by a mum of 2.
‘Small is beautiful and natural is good,” is one of the mantras of this Elephant and Castle food market supplied by small-scale farmers. Family-friendly classes occasionally feature, pictured, but on any given day it’s an interesting way to lunch. “Such a lovely day out, here and then the Imperial War Museum,” says a mum of 3.
Watch your kids step away from their screens to play this game, tips this dad. A big game board, six colour pawns… go down in the dungeon, kill everything you meet and grab treasure like the Horny Helmet and the Boots of Butt-Kicking.
