The Easter holidays are almost upon us. For those of you, like me, who have children of school age, this means two weeks' worth of fun activities to think of. Thankfully, a lot of places have some egg-citing Easter-inspired activities on. Here's a round-up of just some of the things to do in South West London.
1. The Wetlands Centre, Barnes - Giant Easter Duck Trail Saturday 6th April - Monday 22nd April
Hunt for giant yellow ducks hiding amongst the reeds and trees. Follow special activity cards to find where the cheeky ducks are hiding and win a yummy prize while learning all about the wetland wildlife.
Price: £1 per trail, plus admission to the Centre (includes a prize!)
As well as the Giant Duck Hunt, there will be plenty of other fun activities for the whole family to enjoy:
Take part in the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt at Ham House and Garden. They have hidden ten feathers of the birds which live in and around the garden at Ham House. Can you find all of them to claim your egg reward?
Price: £3 per trail, normal admission prices apply for entry to Ham House and Garden.
There will also be extra fun activities across the house and gardens including:
The Barnes Duck Race, which is organised by the Barnes Community Association, is a low-cost, fun event for everyone and is held on Easter Saturday by Beverley Brook in Barnes. Purchase a numbered rubber duck beforehand for £5 and watch it 'race' with hundreds of others. There's a prize for the winning duck! There are usually a few stalls and activities going on too.
5. Circus Extreme - Old Deer Park, Richmond
Friday 12th April - Monday 22nd April
