Easter Sunday can be an exciting time for the kids – lots of sugar and fun activities can leave them on a complete high and ready for the next adventure. To make sure that the children don’t suffer from post-sugar blues, here at Uncover Liverpool, we have compiled a list of activities for Easter Monday.
1. Great Golden Egg Hunt at The Royal Albert Dock
Easter Monday is the last day to complete the Great Golden Egg Hunt at the Royal Albert Dock, so don’t miss it! Pick up your map from one of the venues on the dock, including The Maritime Museum, then try and find the vinyl golden easter eggs in windows around the docks. If you find them all you will be rewarded with a special treat.
2. Giant Easter Eggs at Liverpool One
Easter meets Eurovision in this Easter Egg display at Liverpool One. The display consists of eggs designed by children from across the Liverpool City Region alongside members of the Ukrainian community. The eggs are inspired by the Ukrainian tradition of egg painting called Pysanka Eggs and features seven eggs – one to represent each city region, plus an eighth one to represent Ukraine.
3. Spots and Stripes Hunt at Knowsley Safari Park
Knowsley Safari Park is a family favourite all year round, but this Easter, the children can indulge in some extra fun. The Easter egg hunt takes place in the foot safari and consists of six giant eggs being placed around the area. Children and adults, via the use of a man and stickers, can match the eggs with the animals and if all are found an extra special treat will be unlocked.
4. Easter Adventure at Otterspool Adventure
Whether it’s an Easter Parade or Easter Egg hunt, Otterspool Adventure has everything this Easter. There will also be a spring farm and you can plant your own carrot, and if that isn’t enough, then you can meet the Easter Bunny and receive a free easter egg.
5. Liverpool Indoor Funfair
For the more adventurous and for children of all ages, why not try Liverpool’s indoor funfair. Situated in the Exhibition Centre, the fair has 26 rides and many more attractions. The fair runs until 13th April and tickets can be purchased here.
6. Sleeping Beauty at The Epstein Theatre
Panto is always a holiday family favourite activity, and Sleeping Beauty at The Epstein Theatre has two family-friendly performances on Easter Monday. Enjoy the adventures of Aurora, Prince Philip and the good and evil fairies in this childhood classic. Show times are 1pm or 5pm, ensuring it won’t be too late for the little ones.
7. Easter Egg Hunt at Speke Hall
Easter Monday is also the last day you can participate in the Easter egg hunt at Liverpool’s historic Speke Hall. It costs £3 and if you head down between 10:30 and 15:30 you can make your way along the trail to find activities inspired by nature. An easter egg will be awarded at the end of the trail.
