The weather is getting warmer, the Easter school holidays are approaching and your children need entertaining, so why not visit a family activity farm? Easter is a great time to visit a family activity farm as there is always plenty to see and do for every age range. From meeting baby animals to Easter egg hunts and crafts, a farm is the best place to be this Easter.
Easter coincides with spring, a season that brings new arrivals to a farm and new activities to prepare for the growing season. Some of the best activities to take part in on the family fun farm this Easter are;
- Easter Egg Hunts/ eggstravaganzas. Over the Easter school holidays most activity farms will hold Easter egg hunts or eggstravaganzas for you and your little ones to take part in. The Easter egg hunt will often involve a small section of the farm where brightly coloured or chocolate eggs have been hidden, it is then your job to find as many as you can!
- Meet the baby animals. As Easter falls during the spring season it means there are plenty of baby animals around. Activity farms hold regular sessions throughout the day when children are invited to feed and pet the baby animals whilst learning more about them.
- Tractor Rides. One of the best activities to take part in whilst visiting a family fun farm over Easter is the tractor ride. Not only will you and your children get to experience tractor travel, you will also be able to take in all the sights and sounds of spring on the farm – from baby animals to growing flowers, there’s so much to see!
- Meet the Easter Bunny. Just like meeting Santa at Christmas, many fun farms will also hold meet and greets with the Easter Bunny. If you’re lucky the Easter Bunny may also give you a chocolate treat!
- Arts and Crafts. Showcase your creativity by taking part in Easter arts and crafts. Whether it’s helping your children to build brilliant Easter bonnets, decorating eggs or creating colourful Easter cards there’s lots to do for all age ranges.
- Lamb feeding demonstrations. At Easter time there are lots of little lambs on the farm that need to be cared for and fed – this is an important job on the farm and is highly organised. Look out for lamb feeding demonstrations so you can show your children how the lambs are fed and cared for by expert keepers.
