Norden Farm have the Easter holidays covered with their Springtime Festival. It seems there is something to do every single day. Running from Monday 7th – Saturday 19th April, for pre-school to year 11, there are family shows and film screenings, as well as a family friendly café and arts and crafts activities from £2 – £4 per person.

For the green fingered:
The Easter holidays don’t have to be filled with activities that are only suitable for the kids. There are plenty of things to do that will interest both adult and child. Wandering around an English garden is most certainly one of them. Most of Britain’s gardens are in full bloom at the moment and we are lucky enough to have some of the best in the world open to the public. Harper’s Bazaar have showcased a list of the top 5 to visit located up and down the country, so there should be something for everyone. http://ow.ly/vyTna .
Shelfstore’s local garden from that list is RHS Wisley. Wisely have plenty of activities on for children this Easter and the garden is looking fantastic. Comes highly recommended http://ow.ly/vyTW0 .

Arts and crafts – a project for the week:
If it’s a home based activity that you’re after – arts and crafts are a sure fire way to keep the noise levels down for a few hours. How about giving them a project for the week? How about designing a new storage system for their bedroom?
A set of shelves for them to design and then paint in the colours of their choice!
The design part may need some help from an adult – you’ll need to use our online design wizard to create the shelving structure and then order it. With next day delivery your shelves will be in your little one’s hands by the following day and ready to be painted. With a little newspaper and a lot of courage – hand your kids the paint brush and away they go. For some tips on paints to use with Shelfstore shelving, please see our blog.
So there you have it – plenty of ideas to keep you going until Easter. Best of luck!
