Awesome things for kids to do this summer

Head over to London’s newest park – Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to splash about in the interactive fountains and then make a beeline for the Tumbling Bay adventure playground complete with rock pools. Also check out ‘Extreme Splash Sessions’ at the Aquatics Centre for those who are 8 and over (you must be able to swim 100 metres too) and take part in the floating obstacle course. queenelizabetholympicpark.co.uk

The Southbank Centre Fountains and pop up beach are a summer fixture – the ‘Appearing Rooms’ are designed to be interactive, curtains of water rise and fall inviting kids to dodge and dance in and out of them without getting drenched, generally unsuccessfully. The beach is just by the river to build sandcastles and to dry off. southbankcentre.co.uk
