Easter at Eden: Down on the farm
It’s spring time at Eden and we’ve got lots of new indoor and outdoor games and activities for the whole family to try out at our farm-themed Easter event.
Join the Eden Farmers to help round up their animals, and learn what makes crops grow. Play a-mooo-sing games and eggciting activities. Collect stamps to fill up your card and eggschange them for cracking prizes!
'My kids loved the Easter activities and ended up going two days in a row!'

Easter games and activities
Can ewe find the farmyard animals and get them safely back to their homes? Scramble around the farm with your team to find them, making the animal noises as you go.
Watch out for the Windmill
Can you throw the corn into the amaizing giant windmill, with a steady hand? Watch out for the spinning blades!
Gather all the crops from the field and be the first to gather your vegetables back to the local markets. Work as a team and don’t get cornfused!
Pin the Tail
Try your hand at pinning the tail on the animal – blindfolded! Now, pay attention to de-tail.
The Soil Pit
Explore the soil to find the tiny creatures which live in its layers and help to make our crops grow. You’ll dig it!
Hurl a Wellington boot as far as you can within the boundary lines and see what targets you can hit.
Under-fives soft play
Little ones can let off steam in our soft play area, especially for under-fives. (All children must be accompanied by an adult.)
Storytelling and shows
Bumbling bees, bugs and butterflies
Come and listen to the Eden Storytellers telling wondrous bumbling bug tales and learn about the fascinating world of pollinating insects.
Trails and egg hunts
The Great Eden Egg Hunt
Keep your eyes peeled for precious patterned eggs, hidden around Eden – which you can ‘eggschange’ for a special prize.
The Scoop on Soil Trail
Using your handout, follow the fact-filled discovery trail and learn about why soil is not just dirt!
Wiggly worms are popping up all around Eden to say hello. When you spot one, tick it off on your handout.
Would your child prefer to visit us during a ‘relaxed session’ instead? These take place before our site opens to the public and are designed to welcome visitors who may benefit from a more informal experience, such as those with autism and sensory or communication needs. All Easter activities will be open for the children to take part in.
Relaxed sessions take place at 8am (until 9:30am) on:
- Wednesday 10 April
- Sunday 14 April
- Wednesday 17 April
'We brought our son who has autism to the relaxed session and he had a brilliant time. The staff were excellent and the activities were lots of fun. He was so excited to find a golden egg too!'
