In collaboration with Outdoorsy Days, here we provide details on some of the Easter family days out that we’re most looking forward to.
With Easter just around the corner and lockdown restrictions set to ease, it’s no surprise that parents and children everywhere are bouncing off the walls, clawing at the windows and dying to get out to do something that feels a little more ‘normal’. Plus, it’s nice to have something to look forward to, right? We’ve taken the time to research the upcoming Easter days out that are likely to go ahead, in line with restriction. Of course, you should contact these venues, closer to the time, just to be sure.
Try Easter Family Days Out In The Yorkshire Dales At Easter Bushcraft Club In Harrogate
If you’re anything like me, then your offspring is probably a bit free-range and feral. The Yorkshire Dales Bushcraft Club are hosting a full day of wilderness fun, running from 31st March, 1st April and 2nd April.
Kids will learn a range of practical skills, including primitive shelter building, campfire cookery, map reading, fire making and survival knots.
Lessons are led by a team of experienced instructors and will run no matter the weather. £28 will buy you six hours of peace and quiet, from 9:00am until 3:00pm.
Rockingham Castle Easter Hunt, Market Harborough
If you’re looking for outdoor family activities, with a healthy dose of history and culture thrown in, then why not visit Rockingham Castle in Leicestershire?
From 12 until 5pm on the 4th and 5th April, families can visit the magnificent gardens whilst taking part in the cryptic hunt.
Use the activity book to seek out colourful eggs and spell out an Easter-related word.
Successful young detectives will be rewarded with a chocolatey goody bag at the end.
Admissions cost £7.50 for adults, £5 for children and £2 for under fours.
Don’t Miss The Uk-Wide National Trust Easter Egg Hunt
Each year, the National Trust organises Easter Egg hunts on all 180 of its beautiful sites.
The trail is perfect for getting both little and big ones outdoors for a walk and light exercise, after eating their weight in sugary, chocolatey egg-shaped goodness.
And if the National Trust has anything to do with it, then this year will be no different.
The show must go on.
Trail and ground only tickets are around the £3 mark, but this depends to vary on the site. You can contact your local National Trust location to find out more.
Organise Your Own
Of course, not everyone will have an Easter event going ahead on their doorstep.
Why not organise your own Easter egg hunt, mini garden festival or afternoon of crafting?
Hobbycraft have provided a free download, allowing parents to print clues that you can hide around the house or garden.
By Easter, we’ll be able to socialize in gardens with another household, so your child’s friend can also join in on the fun!
