We drive past the The Beth Chatto Gardens at least once a week and every year I point out that they do an Easter egg hunt. After the success of the Halloween trail we completed at our country park, I was hoping that Ethan would enjoy this activity too.
We paid for our entry and Ethan was given a map. He had to find the wooden eggs hidden around the garden and collect the stamps attached to the eggs.
We found the first egg pretty quickly and by the second egg Ethan understood what we had to do.
Each wooden egg was painted with a solid colour on the back and Ethan would vocalise each colour for us. I also made us run to each egg when Ethan spotted it so it made it more into a game for him.
Ethan does really well with these activities as it sets him a task to complete and gives him a purpose for our visit.
As the eggs are placed all over the garden you easily visit all of the grounds.
We were only there for just over an hour but it was the perfect time to hold Ethan’s attention and for Little E to take a nap.
