Our Easter Weekend

Easter weekend has been and gone pretty quick this year. 
However we have made the most of it as a family with a few days out. 

Friday was rather a relaxed day with popping to town followed by playing cars and ball games with 
Blake as well as reading some of his books to him. 

Saturday we went to Mead Open Farm, we had booked tickets online in advance as 
they worked out slightly cheaper to purchase than at the gate.
Mead Open Farm had a Easter Bunny Bonanza on which was included in the admission price. 
We got a chance to explore  Hoppy the Easter Bunny’s wonderful themed Easter Garden. plus we was able to  earn a chocolate treat by hunting for eggs and even meet REAL Easter Chicks and lambs!

As this time of year little ones love going to the farm its always best to keep little hands germ free at the farm 
here are so great tips: 

Keep a close eye on kids and animals: 
Children will quite happily feed the lambs and straight away put their fingers in their own mouths, even if you’ve told them not to! Pay close attention when feeding animals and give hands a good  clean with sanitizer  such as NatraSan when the need arises.

Pack an effective disinfectant
Packing a safe disinfectant that has the ability to sanitise a number of different surfaces is vital to keep your family clean at farms. NatraSan First Aid spray kills 99.9999% of germs.

Always wash with soap and water:
As well as having a handy bottle of sanatizer with you, it is wise to ensure everyone washes hands with warm soap and water after petting or feeding the animals and again before eating. 
Mead Open Farm has quite a few sinks for hand washing dotted around.

Don’t forget about your mouth:
 Little fingers are always going in mouths and this is a common way for germs to be spread. Always clean little hands regularly just in case your child touches an animal and then sucks their thumb, for eg. 


Mead open farm was such an enjoyable family day out which I would love to do again. 
As Blake gets older I know he will love it more, learning about the animals etc but also
summer time will be an ideal time to go again to make another day of it. 
Once we had been to the farm we headed off to the in laws for a lovely early Easter meal and Blake was spoilt with some lovely gifts which he loves. 

On Easter Sunday we didn't have anything really planned but as a spur of the moment we
 decided to go to the Leighton Buzzard Narrow Gauge Railway which is literally on our doorstep near enough. 
Blake loved the train ride although to be begin with wasn't too keen on the horn to begin with but then soon settled and was fine. When we arrived at the Stonehenge Works we ended up getting off the train and enjoying the Easter egg hunt in which we found a golden ticket for Blake which meant he got a special Easter egg from the Easter bunny. 

Easter Monday was also another relaxed day and we ended up going for a little walk along the canal as well. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend I'd love to know what you all got up to. 
Did any of you going to the farm ? or do an Easter egg hunt with the kids?
