Breakfast with the Easter Bunny18:02
We've been for breakfast with the Easter Bunny at Wyevale Garden Centres and we had a lovely time! It's such a fun way to get the kids into the Easter spirit and a nice morning out (especially when it's pouring rain outside!)
We arrived at the garden centre restaurant and found a table with our name on it, all set and ready for us. It makes such a big difference for the kids to just be able to walk in and be seated at our table straight away. There were lovely little touches as well, and Easter card addressed to the family and a little bag of mini chocolate eggs at each of the children's places.
There was also an Easter themed activity place mat and crayons to keep the little ones busy while we waited for our breakfast to arrive. Ivy happily coloured in the pictures and Ethan loved the maze and spot the difference on the other side.
We were brought tea and coffee and squash for the kids straight away, and didn't have a long wait for our breakfast. I love that they brought all of the kids their meals first, it's such a simple thing that makes the biggest difference to our experience running more smoothly. The kids were very happy with their scrambled eggs, sausage, hash brown, toast dippers and a little cup of baked beans.
Once we had finished our breakfast the kids were each brought a bag for the Easter egg hunt! As Ethan had finished his breakfast quite quickly those crayons came in handy again as we decorated his Easter bag with a drawing of the Easter Bunny in an egg!
Then it was time for the Easter egg hunt. The kids took their bags and went outside into the garden centre, following all of the other children to the baskets of eggs that were hidden around. We also caught a glimpse of the Easter Bunny running off after hiding the two baskets of eggs.
Then we followed the Easter Bunny back into the garden centre where we could have a quick stop to meet him and for photos. I would like to say that I got a photo of Ethan and Ivy with him, but both were a bit intimidated by the massive bunny! That's the only thing that I would change about the morning, it would have been nice to see the Easter Bunny a bit more throughout breakfast and have a longer opportunity for photos.
Then we headed back to the restaurant where we met Alice (who had also been our lovely waitress all morning) and she gave each of the children a soft rabbit toy for them to take home. This was a lovely touch and a fantastic memento for the children of the day that they met the Easter Bunny.
We went back to our table at the restaurant and found an Easter egg shaped biscuit for each of the children with little pots of raisins, chocolate buttons, mini Smarties and marshmallows as well as a tube of icing to decorate their biscuits. They loved making their own Easter egg biscuits, Ethan got very artistic placing each individual item onto the biscuit, while Ivy mostly ate all of the little pots of treats! She then discovered the icing and just loaded her biscuit up! I really liked that they had provided the kids with proper piping bags of icing as they often struggle with the little tubes and this meant that they could do it on their own.
Then they ate their biscuits and our morning with the Easter Bunny was complete. It was such a fun morning, we will definitely be doing it again next year!
