There are plenty of activities to keep your kids entertained this Easter. Of course the Sydney Royal Easter Show is back, and to ensure a great day out for all, I highly recommend planning such days out in advance. Come up with a reasonable budget, so that way your child/children will know how many showbags they're allowed at the show, and which rides they can go on without breaking the family budget. Aside from the entry fee, there are many events for kids at this year's Easter show that are included in the entry price:
Many favourite cartoon characters are coming to life, and these events will be held at the Big Top Amphitheatre: Moshi Monsters Music, Madagascar 3 Circus Workshop, The Lorax and Bananas in Pyjamas. Furthermore, meet and greet sessions will be available with the following cartoon characters in Kids World at the show: Puss in Boots, Shaun the Sheep, Alvin The Chipmunks and Digitalgirlworld.
Parents, your chance to also have fun and race with your kids down the popular rainbow super slide. For those who are adrenalin focused, the Jurassic Coaster will purport a fantastic adventure.
Pony rides will be available, and your child/children will also enjoy animal activities, including watching sheep being sheared to cows being milked at the Easter show. The Sunday Telegraph Animal Walk is an absolute must, and a free activity book is available for pre-school and primary school aged children to complete during this walk.
Furthermore, if you would like your child to learn where our food comes from, and to try their hand at some cooking, then the Food Farm will be fun and interactive, from pastry rolling and egg collecting.
Apart from the Easter show, the following contains some other kid-friendly events for the Easter period:
The Great Easter Egg Hunt
Those home based Easter egg hunts are super cool, however a public hunt is held at Vaucluse House and Elizabeth Farm. In addition to Easter egg hunting, the kids of Sydney will also have a chance to decorate and paint some Easter eggs. Other fun games will also be available. Recommended for ages 3 . Organisers urge families to wear a hat and bring some sunscreen. Entry is $15 per child, including one adult. $8 extra for another adult to attend. Further information can be found by clicking here.
