Keep the Kids Amused this Easter

Posted on Friday, 4th March, 2016

From a parent’s point of view, the Easter Holidays are a wonderful time. Nothing could be more enjoyable than spending a whole uninterrupted three weeks with your little angels. However, without school to keep their minds active, it can become a challenge keeping them occupied.

Luckily, Bury has plenty of Easter activities to keep your family amused. Below we have picked out a few of the best options.

Be Inspired

There is nothing more wonderful than an active young imagination, so why not inspire your family with a trip to the Moyses Museum for the Brick City: LEGO Brick Architectural Exhibition.

Open throughout March and April, this exhibition re-creates some of the most iconic buildings in the world using nothing but LEGO.

Be Creative

Once those creative juices are flowing, turn that inspiration into creation at the LEGO Brick Workshop?

A fun, family day out where kids can enjoy playing with their favourite colourful bricks, while learning the basic principles of engineering, physics and mathematics.

Be Active

Kids running riot? House like a bomb site? Take them out to burn off some energy at the Abbey Gardens.

The play area makes a great setting for an energetic and adventurous afternoon of climbing, swinging and bouncing. Or, if you would prefer a slightly slower pace, the Crazy Golf course is open from April through to October between 9:30am and dusk.

Be with Nature

Of all the seasons, spring is arguably the best time to be in nature. The daffodils are in bloom, the blossom begins to sprinkle colour on the bleak winter landscape and the wildlife interacts to create a wonderful hive of activity.

Experience this buzz first hand at the Abbey Gardens Wildlife feeding area where you can interact with birds, squirrels and any other wildlife you encounter.

Be Entertained

When it comes to entertainment, the town centre is spoilt for choice with The Apex and the Theatre Royal. Both are offering fantastic family entertainment over the easter holiday period.

Take the kids somewhere they can make make as much noise as they like at the Theatre Royal for the Sing Along Frozen show on 8th April.

Alternatively, if you would prefer something more traditional, check out the Easter pantomime at the Apex, The Sword In The Stone on 8th April.

Be Relaxed

All this activity can be hungry work, so if you are looking for an on-the-move re-fuel, the Bay Tree Cafe is a great option. Its colourful exterior makes way for a just as colourful menu: all fresh, all locally sourced, and most importantly, all kid-friendly.

If you’re looking for more of an occasion, enjoy relaxed family fun at The Apex Sunday Brunch on the first Sunday of every month. Themed activities keep the kids amused, while parents can enjoy live acoustic music, all accompanied by a family menu.
