At the end of March, Harewood House opened it's gates for the first day of the season. With Daddy off work it seemed like the perfect day to go and visit. We set off fairly early to try get the most out of the day and the lovely weather that we were lucky to have.
When we arrived Luca made a beeline for the huge adventure playground. The have two, a smaller one for little people and then a big one for older children. Luca spent ages on the smaller climbing frame, sliding down the two different slides, climbing across the bridges and generally enjoying himself. He then spotted the larger one with cargo nets, tunnels, slides and much more and managed to persuade his Daddy to take him on it. Poor Ant is 6"4 so scrambling through some of the sections was a challenge for him but had me hugely entertained.
With the promise of an ice cream we managed to get Luca to come for a walk and discover what else was on offer.
With ice cream in hand we headed to the newly opened farm corner, where it was feeding time for the animals. They have a rabbit corner, some pigs, alpacas and goats and we watched the pigs having their breakfast and listened to a little talk all about them.
Once Luca has looked at all the animals we headed to the start of the Easter Egg trail. Hidden around the grounds were big eggs with letters on them that made a word. Once you had them all you handed the sheet in and got a little chocolate prize.
Luca was really enjoying listening to the clues and hunting for the eggs before shouting out the letters he found. Fun & learning combined.
