As Easter weekend continued we had an unplanned day on the Saturday of Easter weekend so ended up at our local National Trust enjoying; Kingston Lacy Easter Egg Hunt.
The sunshine from Good Friday was no more unfortunately so we coated up and made the trip in the morning in the hope of missing the rain. It wasn’t too busy at Kingston Lacy and we got our map and pencil and set off to find the 7 eggs that we would then exchange for the chocolate bunny at the end!
Each number was quite spaced out with bunny footprints and arrows to follow leading us to the next spot. Amelia loved spotting the arrows and especially the foot prints and running off to see where the next egg was. They were all different; giant wooden eggs, egg shaped hose pipes in the soil and coloured stone shaped eggs. It was really creative and fun for the little ones to look at and enjoy.
Even though it was a pretty grey morning Kingston Lacy still looked beautiful, there were so many daffodils in bloom and Amelia looked adorable stomping through the woodland with her bunny ears (when she left them on). As well as looking for eggs, she did the usual collecting stones and as many Stick Men as she could find.
The walk was quite far and Amelia did get a little tired so I got stuck carrying her for a little bit but once I reminded her of the chocolate at the end she started running for the last couple!
I think it’s really nice if you’ve not been to Kingston Lacy before the Easter trail takes you round pretty much the entire site and even took me to a bit I’ve never been to before which was good. I’m not sure if all the National Trust Easter Hunt’s are like this but I thought that was a real bonus so you got to see as much of it as possible whilst enjoying your time egg hunting!
Amelia who was in charge of our pencil managed to lose it after about the third egg so I did take some photos on my phone as proof to make sure we still got our chocolate bunny. I don’t know who was happiest when the lady opened up the Cadbury chest full of chocolate bunnies, soo much chocolate!!!! Amelia wanted to eat the bunny straight away but managed to hold off to show Nanny and Gramps when we got home.
The afternoon was miserable so called for baking and a film. Amelia baked some Easter cupcakes with Nanny and I let her have free rein to decorate with her Easter sprinkles and do the icing herself. She was so pleased with the finished product I love the photo I caught of her in mid “Taa-daaa”!
We had a great time at the Kingston Lacy Easter Hunt and a lazy afternoon.
What did you get up to on the Saturday of Easter weekend?
