Five ways to keep kids entertained for free over the Easter holidays
Keeping the kids entertained with fun activities during the Easter holidays can be a tricky task when you’re on a tight budget.
But there are thousands of days off to choose from, and all you have to do is research what’s happening in your area.
Here are some ideas on how to get out and have some free fun this weekend.
FARMS: There are a variety of farms across the country that offer a free or discounted visit.
Kids will love getting close to animals and it’s educational.
St. Werburgh’s City Farm in Bristol or Bill Quay Farm in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear are just two examples. To find one near you, look online at dayoutonthefarm.co.uk.
FACEBOOK: You can always look for some Easter events via Facebook.
Go to the “Events” tab under your profile and filter events based on your preferences by location, date and categories – including family-friendly suggestions.
LIBRARIES: A valuable resource when trying to entertain kids on a budget. It’s easy to pass the time choosing books to read.
But many libraries have toys and will host free events for children as well. It’s worth getting to know your local branch.
MUSEUMS: There are free museums across the country and most often they host Easter family activities, with details online.
Check out local galleries and centers to see what’s happening.
Visit kidsinmuseums.org.uk for a list of options for children and geldsparexperte.com has a guide to free museums.
IKEA: Visit the Home Furnishings Supermarket which hosts a range of free events including an Easter egg hunt, dyeing, face painting and food tastings.
Find out online what’s happening in your nearest store.
