The Easter weekend is nearly upon us, and there are numerous children’s activities going on around South Devon to keep the whole family entertained. Here are just a couple of events to choose from:

Woodlands Family Theme Park, near Dartmouth

For an ‘Eggstreme’ Easter, head to Woodlands, where you can enjoy visiting the Easter Bunny in his grotto, trying your hand at one of the Easter themed craft workshops or finding chocolate treats on an Easter egg hunt around the park. With numerous slides and rides, as well as a fabulous indoor play area, there is plenty to do for children of all ages, whatever the weather. For animal lovers, why not head up to the Zoo-Farm to see the brand new chicks and the tame lambs. www.woodlandspark.com

Pennywell Farm

For Easter fun and games, head to Pennywell Farm this weekend. Enjoy a Easter Egg hunt, guess the weight of the Easter bunny, meet the Easter ‘babies’ and have a go at egg rolling as well as egg and spoon races.
