Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER!

So the holidays have officially begun and us parents have two whole weeks ahead of us of either entertaining children that won't be at school or finding things to do with babies and toddlers that have no classes to go to!

        

In true POP fashion (extremely last minute) we have done a round up of things to do, to keep the kids entertained in and around North Oxfordshire and because it looks like it's going to be raining for the next week, we've also included some fun things to do indoors.

       

[1] We went to Bleheim Palace's Easter Weekend last year and it didn't disapoint! There was lots to do for all ages, we will definitely be paying a visit again this year!

[2] The lovely Limes Farm in Farthinghoe, Northamptonshire have lots going on, not just this weekend but next week too. Including Easter egg hunts, fish + chip lunches, family roast dinners and breakfast craft sessions (perfect if it's raining!) Check out their facebook page for further details.

[3] Why not make some good old fashioned Easter nest cakes, great for getting the little ones involved, even if they do lick the spoon! The fabulous What Jessica Baked Next has a great recipe, check it out here Easter Nests The question is, will you use rice crispies, cornflakes or shredded wheat?

[4] Perfect for a rainy day the Playpa Activity Rolls. You can colour it, sticker it, play on it, decorate walls with it. For a limited time only if you buy a Playpa Activity Roll for £14.95 we will send you the matching stickers for free!!!

[5] How amazing are these little Easter themed cress heads?! These are on our to do list over the holidays.

 
[6] Lambing at Hadsham Farm, Horley, Oxfordshire. We had a lovely morning here last year and are so pleased they have decided to do it again for a second year! In addition to the lambing they also have a play area, a craft corner and even an area to hold chicks.


[7] This is another perfect activity for a really rainy day, as it will keep them occupied for at least a couple of hours, well the older ones at least! The kids can make their own bunny popcorn cups and then you can all snuggle down and watch a film!


[8] One of our favourites Compton Verney in Warwickshire have an Easter Trail in the beautiful grounds on Good Friday and Saturday. 

We hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend and eat chocolate for breakfast every day! Have fun x
