When we became National Trust members we decided to truly make the most of our membership during every season. Our first event we wanted to enjoy this year was the Easter Egg Hunt at Kingston Lacy which runs until 23rd April. When we discovered the weather was going to be glorious on Sunday we knew that had to be the day we took on the hunt.
It seemed everyone in Dorset had the same idea, as when we turned up just after 10am the main car park was almost full. The egg hunt began in the woodland trail which is just a short walk from the entrance and only cost £2.50 which got you an egg hunt booklet and 3 little chocolate bunnies at the end.
There were 7 numbered stations with a question and activity at each station. Some were as easy as writing down what you could hear as you stood at the number, where others needed some thinking about your answer.
The walk through the woods was lovely and wasn’t as busy as we thought it would be. Just over three quarters of the way round the trail there is a lovely open play area which was perfect for M to run or rather climb off some energy.
At the end of the trail M was happy to receive his egg hunt reward for completing his little booklet. We were so proud of him as he had written every answer on his own. This is the first year M has been able to read clues and write his answers down so it seemed like an extra special Easter milestone for us all.
I couldn’t resist adding the following pictures M took with my camera. He really does have a talent for capturing us.
Have you been to an Easter egg hunt at Kingston Lacy? or are you planning to attend an Easter egg hunt somewhere else next weekend?
