The Easter holidays are fast approaching, are you wondering how to keep your little ones entertained? It can be hard to plan ideas for long holidays together, particularly when you are balancing the needs of a busy toddler or pre-schooler with the demands of a new baby. The Lascal BuggyBoard is designed with these demands in mind and allows families to enjoy easy days out and unforgettable adventures because it keeps your little ones close, whilst giving your older child the freedom to explore and enjoy every activity.
Follow our ideas for fun to have with your BuggyBoard® for an easy and memorable Easter together…
Go on an Easter Egg hunt
There are hundreds of organised Easter egg hunt events happening all over the UK this April, the National Trust have teamed up with Cadbury’s again to offer their Easter egg hunts but there are lots of independent ones too, take a look online and find your nearest one for fun for all the family.
Your toddler will love hopping down from their BuggyBoard® to hunt for eggs and when their legs get tired, they can hop back up again so your little bunny will be bouncy for longer!
Discover somewhere new
The holidays are a great time to break the mould and try something new. If you always stick to the same walks when you are out getting fresh air with your little ones, then why not use this as an opportunity to discover somewhere new? We are incredibly lucky to have so many green spaces in this country, even if you live in the heart of London or any busy city, there will almost certainly be a park that you haven’t tried yet.
Take your buggy and your BuggyBoard® with you and you can go further without worrying about getting grumpy, tired toddlers home again. They will love running around and exploring new ground and then when they are tired, they can retreat to the safe haven of their BuggyBoard® and relax while you walk them home.
Visit a farmer’s market
There are so many amazing farmers markets happening around the UK now that there is sure to be one local to you. They are an excellent opportunity to explore new tastes and discover local produce with your children as most of the stalls have free tasters to give away. Many have animals too which they will love seeing and you can have a really fun day out without having to spend a penny!
Farmers markets are often arranged along a High Street and can get very busy but with the BuggyBoard® you know that your toddler is safe inside the parameters of your buggy and won’t be getting jostled around by other shoppers. This allows you to use a single buggy instead of a bulky double buggy which is far more convenient for navigating narrow streets and crowds of people.
Get lost in a book
Take your little ones on an adventure to their local library and get lost in a world of books together. You might be able to find some Easter books or some books with crafty ideas to do at home together, making Easter treats for family and friends.
If you are close enough to walk then you can make the journey part of the adventure, or why not take the bus or train if the journey is longer? If you normally drive everywhere then your little ones will love the novelty of taking public transport and you have the peace of mind that they are safe on their BuggyBoard® rather than running around so you won’t have the stress of trying to hold their hand and push the buggy.
You can carry your books home in the basket of your buggy and then keep them for the duration of the Easter holidays so you can enjoy reading them every day together which can provide special bonding time with your big child while your baby feeds or sleeps.
A day on the farm
This time of year is wonderful for seeing baby animals and if you can visit a farm then you might get to see the baby chicks, lambs, piglets and calf’s which will be a memory your children and you, will treasure forever. Some farms allow visitors to feed and pet the animals too, so it is worth checking beforehand if this happens at certain times throughout the day and planning your visit accordingly.
Lots of farms now have soft play areas or play equipment and many have picnic areas too so you can make a trip to the farm last a whole day and tire your little ones out for the trip home on your BuggyBoard®
Explore a museum
We have some fantastic museums in the UK that are just waiting to be discovered and many of them are free or run special offers during the school holidays. If your little one’s love learning new things, then you can broaden their minds with a trip to your local museum. Lots have special activities running during the holidays that get children involved in learning in a different and interesting way, search online to find out what is happening in your local area.
