Easter Bank Holiday is here – but how are you and the kids planning on spending it? Rain or shine, we have some great ideas for things to do as a family over the long weekend.
If the weather isn’t looking good or you simply don’t want to venture out of the house over the weekend, why not get crafty with the kids at home and try your hand at some Easter creations? The shops are full of Easter-themed craft essentials so you’ll be spoiled for choice. Whether it’s making Easter cards, Easter bonnets or Easter baskets, there are loads of options for you and the kids to get arty.
A Trip to Cadbury World
Easter means Easter eggs, so what better way to spend the Bank Holiday weekend than at Cadbury World? Based in Bournville, Birmingham, Cadbury World is running lots of special events over the Easter period so now would be the perfect time to go. Tickets for entry to Cadbury World cost £17 for adults and £12.50 for children aged between 4-15.
Easter Egg Hunts
It’s not Easter without an Easter egg hunt or two, and luckily there are hundreds of egg hunts going on around the country. Cadbury is running egg hunts across National Trust properties around the UK, so chances are there will be one not too far from you. If not, why not create your own mini Easter egg hunt at home?
Visit the Zoo
Even if the weather isn’t great, a trip to the zoo never fails to brighten up a Bank Holiday weekend. Who can resist a wander round to see the all the wild and wonderful animals? Many zoos across the country are running special Easter events too, so there’s even more reason to take a trip.
Bored at home with a cupboard full of flour and sugar? Why not have a go at some Easter baking with the kids? You could bake bunny rabbit cookies, chick cupcakes or do something simple and opt for making chocolate Easter nests with mini eggs. Delicious and fun!
A Cinema Trip
If all else fails, you can never go wrong with a trip to the cinema over Bank Holiday weekend. There’s guaranteed to be something showing that the kids will love, and it’s an excuse to buy some popcorn and other chocolate treats and enjoy a film with the family.
