Easter is the perfect time to search out new activities to try with the children – the weather is getting better (hopefully) and we get that long weekend to relax with the ones we love.
Here at Little Willows, we’ll be looking at the theme of ‘new life’ during the month of April, and making lots of Easter creations with the children, including Easter cakes and cards to take home.
Want to make the most of the Easter break yourself? Try one of these family-friendly activities!
Create your own Roman pot at the Roman Baths
If you like the traditional Roman pots on display at the Baths, you’ll love creating your very own designs to take home.

Sessions are between 10am and 12.30pm and 1.30pm and 4pm.
