Ickworth spring walk and Easter Egg Hunt

We went to Ickworth for a spring walk and another easter egg hunt. We walked around the red trail whick led to some small woods we had never been in before! 

 We also enjoyed the Easter Egg hunt in the formal gardens and stumpery where the girls had to search for numbers and then crack a code which was more tricky than the Wimpole hunt, although they did get a different prize.

Spring walk and Easter Egg hunt round Wimpole

We went for walk round the Wimpole Estate. Spring really fells like it is coming. We looked for signs of spring on the way round.

However, the real reason we went was E wanted to enjoy an Easter Egg hunt! The girls hunted for (clay) carrots around the gardens which had a letter on which then made a word which then allowed them to be gifted some chocolate!

Easter Eggs Decoration Kit

Today the girls enjoyed decorating chocolate Easter eggs from a kit I had bought from notonthenightstreet.  It was such a fun family Easter activity! The eggs were made of good quality chocolate and there was way more chocolate drops and sweeties than needed - which the girls enjoyed 'testing'.

Today the girls and I went to Legoland which is about an hour and a half away from Cambridge. It was a great time to go...we did to queue for a few rides but only for about 20 minutes and the weather was great!  We took a picnic to keep costs down but I did buy the girls an ice cream (£3.30 for 1 scoop!!!). The girls enjoyed all the rides. We also enjoyed the starwars exhibition and Miniland. The favourite ride of the girls was Dragon rollercoaster. Yes it was expensive (although we booked online a week before to make it slightly cheaper) and I would never want to do in the height of summer.. but the girls had a fab time (and this is my theme park limit :) ).

Cambridge Science Festival First Saturday

Today we went to the Science Festival.

We started off engineering, making a large cardboard castle (almost impossible to get home on a bike!) with working lights! P enjoyed making the circuit and E designing the castle, even utilizing spare cardboard to add an extension.

Next we went to the Chemistry Department where we enjoyed learning about hydrogen batteries for cars, turning 2p coins gold and other exciting experiments.

Lastly, we went to the Biology departments for CHaOS. The girls enjoyed biology, chemistry and physics experiments.
