Easter is coming and we have a few tips for all you #LOLLYLOVERS to make it your best Easter yet! Find out where to find the best chocolate and the best family places in London.
Every year Easter time is about enjoying time with your family and going on the fun hunt for Easter eggs. So here we have listed some family friendly places in London, where you can spend the day with your loved ones.
1. Putt in the park Acton. First up is a golfing location, you can enjoy the weather and the delicious pizzas they offer and you don’t have to be a professional golfer! It’s perfect for a family who wants a bit of friendly competition on Easter day.
The location is: Acton park and if you have a party under 10 people you can just walk in.
For more information go to www.puttinthepark.com
2. Windmill Hill City Farm. This is your opportunity to experience farming in the heart of the city. You can find a range of farm animals, a picnic area, an adventure playground, environmental and craft-based courses and much more!
This is the perfect place to teach your kids about the environment and why the earth is such a beautiful place.
The location is: Philip St, Bristol. Go for more information to www.windmillhillcityfarm.org.uk
3. Tapnell Farm Park. This is a great park to visit in all weather conditions! You can meet lots of animals and even get a closer look at some of the smaller residents. There is even an adventure zone with go-karts and zip-wires for the kids to play in for when the weather is bad.
Tapnell Farm Park is located in: Newport Road Yarmouth Isle of Wight. You have to buy tickets for this location either online or when you get there, so keep that in mind.

Next up we have a few gift ideas, some are eating related and some are for kids to play with:
1. First up we have the company PLAYin CHOC. They give kids the best ‘special treat’ there is and that is chocolate with a small toy. The chocolate itself is vegan, organic, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy free and made out of all natural ingredients. How great is that?!
With the chocolate they give you a small toy, that small toy is often an animal that you can build together. The toy and the packaging itself is made out of a 100% recycled, biodegradable material.
The prices of the boxes vary but we recommend these ones:
The standard boxes come with 1 toy and the chocolate are £2.95
The set of 4 box comes with 4 toys and chocolate are £12.00
2. Peter Rabbit soft toy. In the spirit of Easter Peter Rabbit can’t be missed of course.
Peter Rabbit is a rebellious rabbit who is devoted on sneaking into the vegetable garden and we can’t blame him! This soft and plush toy looks exactly like the Rabbit in the movies, it is an awesome toy for a kid to cuddle and/or play with.
You can find this toy over at JohnLewis, either online or in stores and it’s only £8.00!
3. And last but certainly not least we have our own delicious Simply Chocolate ice lolly!
They are made with organic coconut milk and organic cocoa. They are lactose & dairy free, gluten free, nut free and vegan friendly. Simply chocolate is the ideal choice for kids who have a lot of allergy’s and want something refreshing on Easter.
You can find the Simply Chocolate multipack on Ocado for £2.99!
Lastly, we wanted to give you some Easter craft ideas to do with your kids:
1. Make you own Easter basket for the egg hunt. We found this craft on thejoysharing.com
All you need for this craft is:
wood sticks (from ice lollies), empty TP roll tube, cardstock paper, some colored tape, pipe cleaner (you could also use some cardstock paper), glue, scissors and some craft jewels.
Check out the full tutorial on www.thejoysharing.com
2. Next up is a birdhouse made out of a used plastic bottle. The parents are going to have to prep the bottle so that the kids can paint and decorate it.
All you will need is:
Some used plastic bottles, scissors, paint and a brush, some thin rope and decorations of course.
You can follow the entire tutorial on www.goodshomedesign.com
3. Lastly we have the Easter egg wreath. This is a good alternative if you don’t want to use plastic eggs and glue those together. You can let your kids draw all the eggs for the wreath and even some other Easter figures.
All you will need is:
Colored cardstock paper, crayons, watercolor paint, glue, scissors, paintbrush, white string or yarn, googly eyes and ribbon.
