Our Easter Sunday was great craic on site this year with a medley of Easter Egg Hunts for all the different age groups around the park. The tiny tots had to answer one riddle and then all went on to Eds house where all their little bags of Easter eggs were hiding in the grass and old walls.
The older kids were divided up into various age groups and teams and let loose on the park all with different clues to get them started on their own hunts. When you think about it – its quite a feat organising clues for 8 teams with 6 clues each…and getting them to rhyme! (Thanks Ed!!!)
There was no over lapping or confusion with the clues or the teams and everyone found all their eggs and clues in great time.
I had been wracking my little brain to think up something different for a little activity after the Egg Hunt and came up with the idea of a Pinata party, something I knew nothing about! I watched a little YouTube video on how to make them and for the next few nights sat in front of the telly making them and messing around with the decorations. We hung them up out of our old sturdy trees and the kids all had an opportunity to get blindfolded, twirled around and they attempted to whack them to burst them and drop all the sweets and Easter eggs all over the ground. The kids had great fun trying to hit them and everyone managed to get a go, although we did have to renovate a few of the Pinatas to keep them going due to the big crowds!
Thanks to all of you who came and took part in our Hunts and Pinata poking party – we had a great number of families staying in the touring area and mobile homes over Easter which created a lovely atmosphere over the holidays. I hope all the chocolate lovers who came out in force to enjoy our Easter Sunday activities had as much fun as we did!
We’re currently organising our May Bank Holiday weekend activities, keep your eyes peeled for info on this and the summer here or on our Facebook page.
Bye for now,
