With the onset of the Easter holidays families are starting to organise their activities. RSPB Titchwell can deliver a fun time for all.
One of the most favourite childhood activities is taking part in an Easter Egg Hunt. Many village greens are peppered with sunny cut outs of daffodils, yellow chicks and Easter bunnies. Brightly dressed children clutching small paper baskets carefully crafted at Sunday School gleefully followed a trail of rabbit silhouettes in hopes of finding a chocolate reward at the end. Not forgetting the Easter bonnet parade.
A visit to RSPB Titchwell Marsh will add to everyone’s enjoyment of Easter. On Saturday March 26 children and families can join in a ‘clay’ workshop making weird and wonderful creatures as part of the Mad as a March Hare Easter programme. There is a chance to make wind chimes and mobiles out of pine cones, feathers etc plus stick men and a few other natural play activities.
The Titchwell Easter Egg hunt will run from Sunday March 26 – Thursday March 31. Children have to find 10 items related to Easter that are hidden around the reserve. Prize will be, guess what? - an Easter Egg.
To make sure everyone is out in the fresh air over the holidays the reserve is holding a series of nature trails - ‘weird and wonderful’ for younger children. Older children will have a cipher trail and will decode answers. These trails will run from April 1 to April 8 the end of the Easter holidays. Each child will receive a certificate and badge/sticker as a prize.
All activities £1 per child.
If you are visiting with the family, don’t forget that the cafe offers children’s portions of many dishes, there’s a great selection of goodies in the shop, and some great wildlife to look out for too.
