What The Citizen Enfants Mums Are Up To This March

Looking for ideas for all things child-friendly? In the Citizen Enfants round-up, let us inspire you with things to do, buy, watch, try, and experience with your children every month.

From cultural days out and amazing hotels, to stylish junior fashion finds and go-to products, each month we will tell you what we, and our favourite mums, are up to. Here’s what we are up to this March.

Sheena Bhattessa, Founder


BOOK I’m booked in for The Peter Rabbit Easter Adventure in Covent Garden with plenty of activities for kids. I’m a huge fan of Covent Garden with all the street entertainers and market in the middle of the Piazza. BUY This very sweet and useful kids kitchen tower with slide, desk and step so my daughter can enjoy baking in the kitchen, sit at her own desk to draw or just hours of fun on a home slide. STAY I’m ready for some sun so excited to try the very family-friendly Forte Village Resort in Sardinia. A nursery, Mario’s Village, pools, theatre, plenty of things to do. READ I’m reading The Blend: How to successfully manage a career and a family, that age-old conundrum of managing motherhood and career.

STAY This Easter we are off to Barbados and I can’t wait to get to the beach. We will definitely be popping to Cobblers Cove for supper one evening. Such a chic hotel and yet so welcoming of children. PLAY During the school holidays I’ll be taking my boys and their friends to the super-cool Toca Social, the world’s first interactive indoor football gaming experience at the O2. Perfect for rainy days, this place is heaven for sporty teens. SHOP There are lots of birthdays coming up this spring. Little Dutch who have the most adorable curation so their website will be my first port of call for gifts. BOOK If you loved the classic Robin Williams movie on the big screen, you’re sure to feel the same way about Mrs Doubtfire the musical when it arrives in the West End soon. It’s one of my all time favourite family films so I’ll be snapping up tickets for sure. BUY I’m such a fan of Veja trainers so I was thrilled to see the mega-cute collaboration between them and children’s brand Bonpoint. The colours are perfect for spring so I’ll be getting a pair for my youngest son.

STAY For Easter we are staying at the Mandarin Oriental in Bodrum in Turkey. The perfect spot for a family holiday on the beach. PLAY I love going to Pottery Cafe with the girls, we will be doing lots of this over the Easter holidays. BUY I’m obsessed with swimwear from Liewood and I want to buy matching ones for the girls for our holiday. SEE David Hockney at the Light Room. Really looking forward to taking my girls to this. EAT We have become obsessed with the vegan cookies at Birley Bakery in Chelsea Green for an after school snack. Utterly delicious and a lovely treat for little ones.

STAY At The Gleneagles. I’ve lived in the UK for almost 8 years and have never been to Scotland. The hotel is very well set up for children in a gorgeous setting. Ideal for a quick trip this Spring. EAT We love taking the girls out for a Sunday evening supper somewhere fun. Our beloved Pizza East recently closed, and now we love The Pelican pub in Notting Hill, but so does everyone else so getting a table isn’t always easy. BUY To combat this cold snap I am dreaming of warmer days and therefore shopping for warmer days too. One of my favourite children’s sites, Baboushkini, just launched their Spring collections and I’m loving every single thing, especially this sweet floral print blouse. TRY We’ve recently joined Jaego’s House and my girls are obsessed with the soft play and jungle gym. They also have a great lineup of classes, my eldest is looking forward to trying their “Budding Scientists” and “Little Chefs” classes. SEE I’m so excited to take my daughter with one of her best friends to the London Children’s Ballet performance of Snow White at Sadler’s Wells in April. Any budding ballerinas will love it.

STAY I’m very excited to be visiting the Cotswolds with my family over Easter. We have rented a beautiful little cottage near Burford. I recently visited Daylesford for a Bamford event so will be booking myself a wellness facial whilst my husband takes the children to explore The Cotswolds Wildlife Park . BUY I have my eye on some Folpetto swimwear for my girls. Their designs are so pretty and timeless. I especially love the rash vests. It’s so hard to find chic swimwear for children but this is perfect. GIFT We have just welcomed a new baby into the family and I have set aside one of our Threadbear bunny gift sets. Made from organic materials, beautifully soft as well as stylish, and perfectly themed for this time of year. VISIT It’s my daughter’s birthday soon and she wants to go to The Italian Bear in Fitzrovia. She is a chocoholic and they do the best hot chocolate in London, not to mention all the cakes. She can’t wait!
