Top Family Activities for Easter
With Easter fast approaching you may be looking for fun activities to do with the kids that have an Easter theme or twist. The good news is that you don’t have to go far to find a variety of fabulous activities that are sure to keep the kids busy and happy, and parents entertained as well.
Easter and Chocolate - the Perfect Match
If your family has a bit of a sweet tooth The Palace Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt is an absolute must. The family will be able to explore the stunning gardens and home of Henry VIII in search of the gold Lindt bunny. There are plenty of bunnies hidden on the grounds, so it won't take long before you luck out. This is the first time the event is taking place.
Visit the Easter Bunny at Woodhorn Museum
Here's a chance for kids to hunt for the Easter bunny and win a treat if they manage to find him. Taking place at the Woodhorn Museum and Northumberland Archives from April 14-17, kids will get to explore the grounds during their search. This is a free event that will take place from 11am-3pm each day. The Woodhorn Museum and Northumberland Archives is home to more than 800 years' worth of history.
Easter with a Science Twist
While the subject of science may not necessarily come up when you think of Easter, the Full Power - Easter event at the Museum of Science and Industry in Castlefield, Greater Manchester, has managed to blend them together. The event will take place from April 1-17 and gives kids a chance to visit the many exhibits in the museum so they can learn about the power of electricity, water, and steam. Kids are free during this time, but there are some activities that have a fee. The museum is loaded not just with things to look at, but exhibits to touch and try out, giving kids a chance to experience things first hand.
Spend Easter with Wildlife
If your child loves wildlife then you won't want to miss out on spending Easter at the Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife and Falconry Centre in North Anston, South Yorkshire. This event runs from April 1-22 and will see the return of their very popular "Mad About Madagascar" themed event. During Easter weekend there will also be an Easter egg hunt on the Sunday and Monday. Kids will be able to see these Madagascar cuties up close and personal thanks to the daily lemur walkthrough encounter. Of course there is much more to be explored here as well.
Let Kids Make Their Own Basket
What better an item to display on their wooden beside cabinets from Revival Beds than their very own handmade basket? Although the Basket Weaving course at Earth Trust takes place after Easter, happening on April 20, 2017, they can certainly still display the basket and use it for next year's festivities. You can find more information and book a spot by visiting www.earthtrust.org.uk/whatson.
Don’t Pick Just One
If you’ve read through all the events and are having a hard time just picking one, then there is no need to! Why not pencil them all in and really enjoy Easter with the family.
