It may be a bit wet and wild, but there is still plenty of things to do to keep your little ones entertained in Dorset this bank holiday weekend.

1. Farmer Palmers – we love a visit here! In February Half Term it was raining pretty heavy but we still had an udderly mooverlous time! Easter egg hunt running all weekend.

3. Upton Country Park – for Easter they have 3 activities a mini farm, crazy golf and sand art. Each one has it's own fee meaning you can spend as little or as much as you like. Parking is free and the park boasts some beautiful walks. Entertaining Elliot tells us all about their visit in the sunshine! (where has it gone!)

4. Cadbury Eggsplorers Easter Egg Trail – The National Trust has hidden over a quarter of a million eggs around their properties and reserves. Local places include Kingston Lacey, Studland Beach and Brownsea Island however The Life of Spicers had much better weather for this event last year!

5. Moors Valley – there is always plenty to do at Moors Valley including the train, parks, play trail and new addition the Superworm Trail (can't wait to try this!)

6. Making Easter Eggs – if you are skilled enough to get the eggs out of the moulds this makes a great activity. Or you could cheat and decorate shop bought ones! I won't tell anyone!

7. Bournemouth Oceanarium – We are big fish fans, Olive can spend ages at the aquatic centre looking at fish! She's also a huge fan of tortoises and turtles and Bournemouth Oceanarium has both! If you book online you can save a massive 30% this Easter.

Look mum - turtle!

8. Wimborne Model Town and Village – There are various activities on over the Easter break from crafts to a puppet show and also Dorset Wildlife Trust are holding a quiz. All this and you get to pretend you are giants!

9. Avon Country Park – Try out the lost egg trail £2.80 a sheet with chocolate prize at the end! Or like us come and rummage around in owl poo (yup I did say that! Blog post to follow!)

10. Make an Easter Card – if you don't fancy venturing out in the wet, why not make an Easter Card using my doodle. Or try out these Baker Ross Easter crafts I love The Life of Spicers pipe cleaner nest didn't Miss A do well!

  1. Oh I love this. I want to do it all. Although the Easter bunny would have creeped me out a little! Moors Valley is on our list, we couldn't even get into the car park last time we tried to go. Thanks so much for linking up to #TheList x
