4 ultimate Easter adventures with the kids
With the Easter bank holiday fast approaching and the weather hopefully beginning to warm up a little, now’s the perfect time to plan some fun family activities for the four-day weekend. If you’re in need of a little inspiration, we’ve rounded up our top four adventure ideas...
Join the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt
We’re going on an egg hunt, we’re going to catch a big one... Once again, Cadbury has teamed up with the National Trust to host its mighty egg hunts at National Trust locations across the UK. Crack the clues, complete the trail and be rewarded with a scrumptious, chocolatey treat (much deserved after all that walking!). Fancy making a whole day of it? Most of the National Trust sites will be putting on Easter-themed crafts and activities too.
Monkey around in the trees
Take your family adventures to dizzying new heights at Go Ape. Its tree-top high ropes course is perfect for families who love nothing more than to monkey around, with courses designed specifically for mini Tarzans as well as larger apes. Most of Go Ape’s courses are smack bang in the middle of the forest, so you could combine your trip with a spring-themed scavenger hunt, or take to the local mountain bike trails and put your cycling skills to the test.
The snow may have melted away but that shouldn’t stop you from hitting the slopes. If you haven’t managed to enjoy a ski holiday this year, then there are plenty of ski centres across the UK where you can get your ski or snowboarding fix without even getting on a plane. Or how about tubing? It’s like sledging, but you whizz down the slope while sitting in the middle of a rubber tube instead – heaps of fun and it provides a lot more cushion as you glide over those bumps! The tubes can spin around and be linked together, meaning that no two rides are the same.
Swap a trek for a trot
If you want to switch things up, instead of a family walk why not swap two legs for four and head out on a horse (or pony) ride? Plenty of stables and riding centres offer full-day experiences where you’ll get to learn all about these noble steeds before taking to horseback for a gentle trot across the beautiful countryside. Be prepared, though, as some stables will expect you to muck in on mucking out!
Adventure with GP
These experiences will make for many picture-perfect moments, so bring GP along for the ride and always pack one of our trusty PowerBanks. They will keep your phone’s battery topped up all day long, so are the ideal companion for any Easter adventure!
