Easter can occasionally be daunting with two weeks to fill up with fun activities for the kids. To help all the families in need of some bright ideas, we have gathered together activities and ideal spots to visit that you’d be hopping mad to miss out on…
SALOMONS ESTATE CASTLE
The Easter Bunny will be visiting Salomons on Sunday, with fun Easter egg hunts running from 10:30 until 13:30. Intrepid explorers will be able to hunt for eggs by following clues and searching high and low in the beautiful grounds of the estate. After decorating their bags to collect eggs in, then starting at the magical fairy garden, tiptoeing through the toadstools, across the Bunnies’ Crossing and completing a mini obstacle course, successful explorers will be rewarded with a delicious chocolate egg. Visitors can also make and decorate their own Easter cards to take home to their families.
