Since then I have been impressed with the amount of activities put on by the team at Eden's Kids Corner, especially during the holidays. At Christmas they hosted an amazing little 'Elf School', during half term they had jungle themed activities and for the Easter holidays they have two whole weeks of spring time fun - all completely free!
Today was the first day I made it along but I've seen lots of friends posting pictures on social media of their children's handiwork earlier this week and am sad to have missed out on garden gnome painting, flowerpot making and daffodil windmills. If it was as good as today then I certainly missed out and I won't be making that mistake next week.
However, today's activity was definitely worth a trip into town as they hosted a mobile farm complete with lambs, ducklings, chicks, rabbits, guinea pigs, goats and tortoises.
Lily loved it. She's obsessed with goats at the moment after watching Heidi on Netflix and once she got over her nervousness she had a wonderful time feeding the lambs and goats. The animals were friendly and obviously used to having young children feed them and the staff were very kind and helpful, showing the children how best to feed the animals and even getting out chicks and rabbits to stroke.
Frankly, as a free activity, it was brilliant. We teamed our visit with a trip to another local favourite, Lilymae's Play Cafe for a nice cup of tea and a toasted teacake, they were giving out cards for a free tea or coffee, so if you're local I would definitely recommend popping in and making the most of it - you can enjoy a hot drink and let the kids play. Win win in my opinion.
Next week we'll be popping back to Eden for gnome painting on Monday and the puppet show on Thursday. You can check out the timetable for the week over at their website here. Activities run from 11am to 4pm and are all completely free.
Let me know if you try it out!
