As every UK school prepares to enjoy a relaxing two week Easter break, parents have the pleasure of having their little ones back with them all day long. This can be both good and bad; obviously it’s great to be able to spend such valuable time with your children, but sometimes it can be a huge struggle to know just what to do to keep them entertained! Easter is such a fun time of year for children: with chocolate galore and loads of spare time to play with their friends - team that with all the newborn animals that will be making appearances and you've got yourself the makings of some fantastic Easter days out.
To help you find out what's going on in Medway and its surrounding areas, we've compiled a list of the top 5 Easter Eggs Hunts that will help keep the kids entertained.
Demelza Easter Egg Hunt
Demelza Hospice Care for Children are holding their annual Easter Egg Hunt on Friday 19th April at their site in Sittingbourne. Children will be able to go on an epic adventure to help Cotton Tail find his friends and receive the ultimate prize for completing the Easter Egg Hunt. Don't miss out on this fantastic family fun event that we are extremely proud to be sponsoring.
Spring into Easter
From Friday 19th April to Monday 22nd April, Kent Life will be holding their Spring into Easter Weekend at the Kent Showground. This fun-filled Easter Weekend will see children join the Easter Bunny for a special Easter egg hunt, make their own Easter bonnets and enjoy the unmissable Easter parade. Celebrating the start of Spring, children will also have the chance to meet baby farm animals, hop on a farm ride, enjoy the indoor and outdoor play areas and so much more!
Easter Fun at the Farm
The Hop Farm is renowned for its family-fun days out, so it's no surprise that its Easter event makes our top 5 go-to Easter activities. Kids can enjoy egg-citing Easter games as well as enjoy the indoor soft play, crazy golf and get up close to the little lambs, bunnies and chicks! With so much to do at the Hop Farm it really is a jam-packed family day out, perfect for fun over the Easter half term.
Dobbies Easter Bunny Breakfast
We all know how delicious a Dobbies breakfast is, so why not bring your kids along to your local Dobbies Garden Centre on Friday 19th April to Monday 22nd April for a delicious cooked breakfast and some Easter fun. After breakfast your little ones will hop off to enjoy some fun Easter crafts before meeting the famous Easter Bunny. There is also an incredible fancy dress competition, so to be in with a chance of winning, make sure your little ones wear the most eggcellent outfits!
Easter Fun with the Junk Orchestra
Join in the Easter fun at Leeds Castle on Friday 19th April to Monday 22nd April and see your children get creative at the Castle’s ‘mad hat’ making workshop. Throughout the event, The Junk Orchestra will be jamming with their instruments made from bits of old rubbish. They’ll also show your little ones how to make their own junk instrument, which they can take home to entertain you all through the evening. Finally, an Easter day out wouldn’t be complete without embarking on an Easter Trail through the glorious Leeds Castle grounds in search of a delicious chocolate reward!
If you’re planning an Easter day out for the whole family, why not hire a minibus or coach to take you there. You’ll be able to sit back and relax knowing everyone is on-board, having fun and raring to get their teeth into some delicious Easter treats.
