Prestwood, 4th –6th April
This is a super Easter egg trail around the Barn Kitchen gardens. We did it last year and loved it.
Children will be issued with a trail map and pencil and will search for wooden eggs on our farm-themed hunt. These will be exchanged for a chocolate egg at the end (dairy-free available). There will also be an Easter gardening activity along the way which includes a wildflower pot to take home.
Wendover, Bucks (plus Thame) – various dates
Each participant will be given their very own Easter Egg mould and with the guidance of our wonderful chocolate chefs they will pipe chocolate and decorate both sides of their own Easter Egg. The chocolate course lasts approximately 30 minutes.
The Easter Eggs will then need to set for another half an hour before you can take them home. Whilst they are setting you are welcome to stay on for a drink or treat, or feel free to pop back into us later on. We’ll wrap your eggs beautifully for you to take home.
