Easter is also a great time to look after a child and experience it all with them! We know this first hand and have put together a list of the fun Easter activities for parents and those fostering in Cambridgeshire to enjoy.
Cambridgeshire is celebrating Easter in style with a wide variety of Easter fairs dotted around for families to enjoy. Here are just a few of our suggestions: Meldreth Village Hall Easter Fair – Saturday 19th March 2016
With a wide variety of stalls on offer, this Easter fair is sure to entertain. Refreshments will be available, as well as games for the kids, including a lucky dip, giant Easter egg tombola and Easter egg hoopla! All proceeds will be going to charity. Entry is free and the fair will be open from 12pm – 4.30pm. Meldreth Village Hall, High Street, Meldreth, Royston, Cambridgeshire, SG8 6LX
The indoor patio, paving and decking store Rose Landscapes are holding their own Easter Fair on Good Friday with all proceeds going to Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice. There will be an Easter egg hunt around the store as well as a digger discovery zone, face painting, tombola and a lucky dip. Refreshments will also be available. Entry is free but some activities cost extra. Starting from 10am – 2pm. Rose Landscapes, Padholme Road East, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, PE1 5XL
This Easter food and craft fair has something to offer everyone. There will be a variety of stalls, offering handmade gifts, cheeses, pies, chocolates, cakes, local beers and much more. There will also be an Easter Bonnet competition so get your best bonnet out for that! Entry is £1 to the fair which is running from 11am – 3pm. Ramsey Rural Museum, Wood Lane, Ramsey, Cambridgeshire, PE26 2XD.
Aside from Easter Fairs, there are plenty of Easter egg hunts for the kids to get involved with. Children love a good Easter egg hunt and it’s a great excuse to get them playing outdoors too! Here are just a couple of our top picks:
Visit the National Trust’s oldest nature reserve, Wicken Fen, home to a diverse range of wildlife. The Easter egg hunt will lead you and your children along the boardwalk trail, picking up clues along the way which will result in a chocolate egg treat! The trail costs £2.50 to participate and normal admission fees apply. It runs from 10am – 4.30pm on each day. Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve, Lodge Lane, Wicken, Ely, Cambridgeshire, CB7 5XP.
Peckover House is a beautiful Georgian Town House with a fascinating history and breath taking gardens. They are running a special Easter egg hunt around the property at the cost of £2.50 plus normal admission fees. The egg hunt will run from 11am – 4pm on each day. Peckover House and Garden, North Brink, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, PE13 1JR
There are plenty of other fun activities happening in Cambridgeshire over Easter, including Kids Club Ely Easter 2016 Playscheme and the opportunity to have breakfast or tea with the Easter Bunny at Wyevale Garden Centre in Huntingdon! If, however, your children have grown up and flown the nest or you would like to add a new member to your family, you can come and visit us at our drop in session at Tesco Extra in Cambridge on Monday 4th April between 1pm and 3pm. Make this Easter an Easter to remember.
