We all love the V & A Museum of Childhood, and have written about it before here. This Easter you can just drop in to the Museum activities at any time, though take our lead, and try and get there before the 2pm craft table starts, as it is the hot free ticket of the day. PS. don’t forget your sunglasses and sunscreen for the sandpit & punch and judy on the top floor. xo
