There are loads of virtual days out you can do with the kids right now. The great thing about this is that you can visit museums, theme parks and zoos while avoiding the queues, and see that the kids might be interested in visiting in person in the future. Most places are offering ‘extra’ activities at the moment, so you can make your trip more interactive too.
Here are my top 5 virtual days out!
1. Tate Modern, London
Tate Modern is always great for kids, but the website https://www.tate.org.uk/kids has a load of content to let the kids experience the museum at home. Take a tour and then break out the inner artist with the make section.
Our favourites are:
2. Natural History Museum, London
Always a popular choice for a day out, the online resources let your children experience the museum in a new and exciting way. Plus there are a load on online teaching resources available if you wanted to take your day out further
My top attractions are;
3. National Marine Aquarium
The National Marine Aquarium has been offering free online sessions on a Friday since the start of the year, so if you have missed them, this is a good time to catch up on their youtube channel. It’s really informative and educational for the kids, plus they cover KS2 plus early learning years, so it’s good if your kids range in ages too.
You can check it out here: https://www.national-aquarium.co.uk/learning-at-the-aquarium/home-learning-sessions/
4. Disney Land
As treats are few and far between at the moment, so how about a virtual trip to Disney Land with the kids for one of the days out! They can dress as their favourite characters, watch movies and then will take a ride on some of the virtual rollercoasters. There are loads to choose from on youtube, but we particularly enjoy the Frozen Ever After ride:
Then end the day with one of Disney’s famous parades. Again there are loads to choose from on youtube but we liked the 60th Celebration Opening Night:
5. Chester Zoo
If your kids are more into animals, be sure to check out Chester Zoos virtual zoo days. They cover loads of different animals from meerkats to tigers, my personal highlight being the elephant pool party! Loads to keep you and your kids interested – you can see it all here https://www.chesterzoo.org/virtual-zoo-2/
