The Easter holidays are nearly upon us, and mums and dads, we’ve got you covered for suggestions on how to keep the kids entertained. There’s a great selection of fun things to do here in Hertfordshire, so we tried to focus on a few activities that won’t break the bank. Save those pennies for the Easter Eggs!
Rather than the children spending all your money this holiday, why not give them a chance to make some or, to make some Roman coins to be more specific.
On Monday 2 April, visitors to the Roman Baths will be able to make their very own Roman coins from clay which not only sounds like great fun but, possibly even educational? The session runs from 2pm to 4pm and is listed as being suitable for children aged four upwards. Booking is not required but spaces are limited so be aware it’s on a first come first served basis. There are also other activities taking place at the baths over the holidays so visit their website for more information. As an Easter treat, each adult accompanying a child taking part in a paid activity can enter the baths for free. Talk about making money!
It isn’t Easter without an Easter egg hunt so take the whole family down to the Batchwood Golf Course and Sports Centre in St Albans on Saturday 31 March, 11am to 2pm, to fill your baskets. The Batchwood bunny, affectionately known as Thumper, has hidden lots of clues in the woods to add to the excitement and there are a number of arts and crafts activities on offer, face painting, as well as the kids favourite, a bouncy castle.
Hopefully the weather will be more spring like over the Easter holiday so take the opportunity to get outside and embrace nature at the Hatfield Park Farm. Open from 10am – 5pm each day, families can enjoy meeting the farm animals, including the new lambs, go on a free tractor ride and indulge in some imaginative play in the on-site children’s park which includes an impressive play fort. Admission to the farm and play area is charged at £5 for adults and £2.50 for children, and is free of charge for under three. Please note the farm will be closed for Good Friday.
