What better way to start off the Easter holidays than by getting together with friends and doing the National Trust, Cadburys Easter Egg hunt. Destination of choice Anglesey Abbey. It’s the second time we have done it there and both have been brilliant fun, Good Friday just happened to be extremely sunny and quite warm too – which was fabulous.
The hunt this year started near the Hoe Fen woodlands and took us all around the woodland, where we had to make a den and hunt down letters in the storytelling circle and around that area. We had the opportunity to get some fun Easter photos in a little selfie area they had set up and then it finished by the new play area that they have created. Swinging hammocks and bales of straw for jumping over, the children had a fabulous time burning off their chocolate session.
After we completed the chocolate challenge, and I felt complete satisfaction for working out the answer to the hunt quiz, we had a picnic lunch near the tree house and then spent the entire afternoon wandering around. We made it to the mill and around that way, the gardens are so pretty and the children had a lovely time. I still cannot believe we spent 6 hours there, it went so quickly and was the perfect day for it.
Here are some of the pictures that we captured along our adventures, some great memories and a brilliant way to start our Easter holidays:
