Watching films is a fantastic way to open up the world (both real and imaginary) to your little explorers: movies take you on a virtual journey and show you new things, places and ideas.
And for this month’s Lonely Planet Kids creative challenge, we’ve teamed up with London’s British Institute of Film to treat one lucky trailblazer and their family to an afternoon at the movies. They are offering children’s screenings of one of film’s most intrepid explorers, Indiana Jones, throughout July. We’re pretty sure Indiana would like our Let’s Explore… activity books with stickers, colouring and fun facts!
We’re asking your child to answer the following question (in no more than 50 words, please!):
Let’s explore the amazing world of films! Tell us which film location (real or fictional) your #lpkids most want to visit and why.
Whether your child wants to venture deep into the ocean with Nemo or explore London with Paddington Bear, it’s time to get their thinking caps on – we want to hear from them!

There are four ways you can help your child enter the Let’s Explore with the BFI competition:
