Easter egg hunt and the balloon bee

With my eldest daughter very much into pirates and pirate treasure she loved the idea of hunting for treasure. Off we went to Wentworth Castle.  The girls and I had been before at Christmas and we had such a fantastic time that I could not wait to take them back again, we were not disappointed.

My eldest was given a map which we had to follow to find the missing egg people.  Off we went

Our first clue was at Easter bunny house.  My eldest drew the answer and we continued on our way

We looked high and low for all the egg people

We saw some sheep and a lovely tree

My eldest and I even climbed up a tree

There were plenty of puddles to splash in and even a castle to explore

We completed our treasure hunt and handed in our answers.  My eldest was given a chocolate Easter egg and my youngest was given a flashing chicken

As we had just experienced hail, snow, blizzard snow, high winds, and rain we decided to stay in doors to warm up and do some of the craft activities

 Easter craft

 My eldest not so long ago had a balloon dog, sadly balloon dog came to an end due to the sharp teeth of a now 10 month old.  Today at the Easter activities a lady was making balloon animals.  I have to say I have never met a lady so talented at balloon modelling.  She made my eldest a balloon bee.  Balloon bee then came every where

After all the craft, exploring and treasure hunt there was only one thing left to do, play at the park

 I have had such a lovely day with the girls and it was really lovely for the sun to come out in the afternoon.

Of course it would not be Easter without a glimpse of the Easter bunny
