Fun for under 13s
Libraries are still closed, but you can take part in lots of online activities like the Summer Reading Challenge. This year the theme is the ‘Silly Squad’ and all about funny books, happiness and having a laugh.
We are running some Bright Start activities for under 5s online, like Come and Play, family Zumba and baby massage.
Adventure Playgrounds will be permitted to reopen from July 4 and will be expected to follow COVID-19 secure guidelines. Teams are working hard to make sure this can happen. Islington has 12 Adventure Playgrounds which are safe, welcoming, fun and free for children aged 6+. They are key in supporting children’s physical health and emotional wellbeing.
