Looking for some fun things to do with your sproutlings? Here are our top picks for family friendly goings-on in London for the next week.

Friday: Attention all parents: this is your last weekend before the start of half term. You may wish to find a babysitter and treat yourself to something fun before it's too late.

Saturday: March over to the Imperial War Museum for Life on the Home Front where you can learn about war artefacts from 11:00am-12:30pm and again from 2:30pm-4:00pm. Free admission.

If military history isn't your fancy, stop by the Southbank Centre to try your hand at divining the future....with books. The Bibliomancer's Dream runs from 10:00am-11:00pm and is free. Suitable for all ages but recommended for children 5+. This is the first event in the ongoing Imagine 2010 Children's Festival.

Sunday: The Royal Arts Academy is hosting a Drop-in Van Gogh workshop from 11:00am-1:00pm. The event is free but you'll need an exhibition ticket to get in.

Not a huge fan of sunflowers? Head to the National Gallery instead for a family Walk and Talk in which you can learn about the theme of the body in art. It runs from 12:30pm-1:30pm, is free, and appropriate for all ages.

Tuesday: Tickets are finally freeing up for Avatar at IMAX cinemas. Take your teenager (if you haven't done so already!) and he or she will love you forever (or at least for a couple days longer than normal).

Wednesday: The Little Angel Theatre's production of Old Mother Hubbard opens to audience members ranging from 3-6 years. Tickets £8/£6 concessions.

Thursday: Get your hands dirty with the Spitalfields City Farm After School Club. The Club runs from 3:30pm-5pm and is appropriate for ages 8-13.

Prepare for the king of nonsense with Michael Rosen's A-Z of Poetry. The event, which is the second in the Imagine 2010 Children's Festival, begins at 11:30am at the Southbank Centre. £8 for grown ups, £4 for the kiddies.
