With the weather being good today I decided to dig out the Hever Castle vouchers I had ordered with my Tesco clubcard points. The boys were really excited as I told them there was going to be some Easter activities. We parked up the car and I handed my Tesco vouchers to the friendly member of staff who gave the boys an Easter trail map each. The boys wanted to get started straight away. There were six questions to answer with six numbered signs to look out for around the gardens. The boys got really involved especially running around the mazes and the amazing park they have there to find the clues. DS2 was in his element excitedly shouting ‘we’re on an adventure’ as we ventured off the path way through muddy puddles and up stairs to reach the beautiful walks and water fountains. There was lots to do and see in between each clue so the chocolate bunny reward was just a bonus for them. Before we left we stopped by the water fountain which was the boys favourite thing to do. The aim of the water fountain, I am sure, is to walk across avoiding the water that sprays up at you on certain parts but of course the boys found out it was much more fun to purposefully get soaked from head to toe, thank goodness I packed a change of clothes for them. There were also other activities on offer for a small charge such as Easter bonnet decorating, face painting and archery but we were saving pennies today.
We all had a lovely day out and as it didn’t cost me anything in money today it was a fantastic ‘free’ day out.
