Eggcellent Family Days Out This Easter!
The Easter bunny’s been and gone and you have enough chocolate to last you til’ next year (that diet will start next Monday). Your little ones are off for two weeks and it looks like a gruelling Easter Break for you unless you have plenty of activities planned! Here’s a list of ways to tire the little rascals out this holiday that don’t always involve copious amounts of chocolate!

Nearest Tube: Kew Gardens.
Sugary goodness with a slightly educational twist, Kew Gardens takes you on an interactive journey back in time to discover the history of chocolate in adventure round the gardens. From the Mayans and the Aztecs to the distant world of 17th Century London, the history of chocolate will be explained in an exciting and innovative way with plenty of activities to keep your little ones occupied. There are also a series of workshops including chocolate making, face painting and crafts workshop. Alternatively, why not take a walk around the beautiful gardens and try and spot the new blooms of spring?

How about a more educational approach to Easter? Easter at the Wetland Centre is full of fun, educational activities for your little ones to sink their teeth into this holiday.
