I thought I would compile a huge list of fun things your children can get up to in the Easter holidays. It’s important to make sure our children aren’t spending all their time holed up in their rooms staring at a screen. I will randomly tell the children it’s a ‘tech free’ day. The first reactions are horror, disgust even hatred. Then they realise how much fun have together and its almost as if they are happy with being cut free from technology.

It's so important that they have a proper childhood and experience as much fun and adventure as possible, before they become adults weighed down with responsibilities. As easy and obvious as this may sound, imagine how quickly the days slip away as they sit behind their phones, tablets and computers. Its over as quick as a flash so, to help with the adventures and fun here are 50 things they can begin with.
