Easter 2015

wb_easter_egg_huntAs I sit by my window typing this blog it looks like Spring is finally upon us and, like many families, we’re wondering what to do with the kids during the school holidays.

Thankfully the tourist attractions in and around North Norfolk are gearing up for the influx of families and many are running Easter themed activities during the half-term.

Why not check out these great family activities?

Easter Themed Activities

Norwich

Discover Norwich are running a Easter Egg hunts between Saturday 28th March to Friday 10th April. They have hidden 20 “Easter Egg” posters around Norwich City Centre, on the street or in shops and shop windows.

There is a prize of a free chocolate Easter Egg for those who find 10 or more eggs to be claimed at the Tourist Information Centre.

Check their website for more information.

Sheringham Park NT

Sheringham Park are running several family events over Easter including a Cadbury Easter Egg Trail between 28th March and 12th April. All tickets cost £2.30.

They are also running spring-time nature activities that feature in the NT guide “50 Things to Do Before You’re 11¾“. On Monday 6th April there is the opportunity to become a Rockpool Ranger and discover the incredible creatures that can be found living in or around the rocks on Sheringham Beach.

Later that week on Thursday there is the opportunity to pond-dip for tadpoles in the park. I have fond memories of catching tadpoles as a child and am sure that this activity would be a huge hit with kids.

Check their website for more details on these events.

Pensthorpe Park

Pensthorpe Park are running an Easter Eggstravagansa! Join them in the celebration by exploring their nature trail finding out more about our natural world and finish the day by making a peg bug in the WildRootz Marquee.

This event is included in the normal admission price. Check out their website for more details on this event and other inclusive activities.
