Kids Activities in Portsmouth this Weekend

aspex_logoThis week sees the return of See! Make! Do! at Aspex art gallery. These popular artist led sessions take inspiration from the current installations and offer your child a chance to create works of art using various kinds of media. You can book ahead or just turn up on the day, and the session costs £6 per child. These take place once a month on the second Saturday of the month.

If the weather is miserable, then do have a look at our Swimming Pool listings or perhaps try a new soft play venue – perhaps visit the new Rock Up at Whiteley Shopping centre which has climbing walls for teens to adults and softplay climbing frames for younger children.  They are also running a new toddler group on a Monday during term time – Toddler Track from 9 am – 11 am. Soveriegns is now open again after their refurbishment and Fuzzy Ed’s has now become a Wacky Warehouse.

Have a great weekend!
