With a wide range of fun and exciting activities, including an ‘Easter Eggstravaganza’ that includes an Easter Bunny hunt, Easter-themed arts and crafts, sporting fun and games, competitions and an ‘eggciting’ fancy dress party the council’s Easter Holiday Playschemes are set to be the best yet!
The theme of the second week of activities is Cartoon Capers and will be action-packed and full of fun with wacky races, super heroes, cartoon princess and lots more. The week will end with a fun party with children dressing up as their favourite cartoon character. In addition, children are able to choose from a range of activities every day including sports, music, drama, arts and crafts.
Due to popular demand the Playschemes will start at 8.45am and run until 3.30pm.
Children can come along for the whole two weeks, or individual days as required.
The Easter Playscheme will be based at Thomas Willingale School, Loughton and will run from 2-12 April inclusive. The booking line is now open on 01992 564226 and the playschemes will continue to offer great value for money at £15 per day (£8.50 concessions).
We are also running a number of ‘Play In The Park’ and Play In The Forest’ sessions for children from 5 – 11 years old.
‘Play in the Park’ is all about playing games and having fun outdoors. Play Rangers will bring along a wide range of equipment for children and young people to enjoy and will help organise games. Space Hoppers, flying saucers, rounders, football, arts & crafts and endless fun! Children are:
