Top Ideas for the Easter Holidays in Wales!

Those shiny Easter eggs have been in the shops for way too long, and having already caused quite a few arguments I’m pleased to say it’s almost time to allow our little chicks to eat them! Bring on the sugar rush!

This means it’s time to plan our Easter holidays here in Wales too, only a few days to go until the schools break up! Yikes! Like us, many of you are probably busy planning how to juggle and survive/ enjoy the two weeks with the kids. I’m really looking forward to it, I have a whole week off, the first week off work this year so I’m planning to make the most of it! To help me plan and hopefully give you some ideas too, I’ve created a list of some of the fun Easter events that have caught my eye!
