The Easter holidays are upon us and so you may be wondering how you can entertain your children over the next few weeks. Here is a guide one of the fun events where your children can visit, explore, and burn off some of that excess energy.
Easter Egg Hunt
Croxteth Hall is holding an Easter egg hunt which is running from Saturday 2 April right up to Easter Monday 25 April. The hunt will be held inside of Croxteth Hall to make sure that the weather will not get in the way of all the fun.
The hunt titled ‘Learning is Fun at Croxteth Hall’ is aimed at younger children and their parents. Explore the hall as you hunt for the pictures of eggs which are hidden around the space. Each egg will have a letter on it. You need to enter the letters onto your work sheet which will be given out to all hunters. Mums and Dads are welcome to help solve the scrambled word, and all correct entries will be entered into the prize draw. Four winners will be selected to win ‘Golden Tickets’.
The Golden Ticket is based on the magical tale of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The ticket entitles the winning child and one parent or guardian to visit The Chocolate Cellar. Here they will learn all the secrets of making chocolate. And anything that they make can be taken home with them!
As an extra treat donkey rides will be available from the Hall gift shop entrance on Sunday 3 April until Sunday 17 April. Younger children will be taken for a trip around the hall and get to stroke these wonderful animals. On some days Croxteth will also offer families the chance to take a ride as a family in the horse drawn carriage.
Burn Off That Energy
For energetic children the hall has organised a Chick Run which will start at 10.30 am on Saturday 16 April. This is a 5k run which is aimed at everybody no matter how young or old, or what your running abilities may be. The aim fo the fun run is to raise money for Clatterbridge Cancer Research.
You are welcome to dress up for this ‘fast and fluffy’ event. And if you run out of energy people are welcome to jog or walk the whole distance. All entrants will be given a chick costume to wear during the run. Tickets cost £15 for adults and £10 for children under 12. The sponsorship level stands at £50 so ask your friends and family to help you to raise as much money as possible for this excellent cause.
