In April the picturesque Holt Country Park will host several fun-filled activities for children, run by North Norfolk District Council’s countryside team.

A broad range of activities will include: a hungry caterpillar and butterfly toddler trail, an Easter Treasure Hunt and a Woodland Activity day – providing something for every youngster.

The first event on the fun-filled calendar is the hungry caterpillar and butterfly toddler trail on Tuesday, April 9. This session is suitable for children aged one to six and will see children walking through the beautiful Holt Country Park while they learn about the lifecycle of a butterfly. This session will run from 10.30am to 12.30pm and cost £3 per child. Parents must accompany children throughout.

As Easter draws closer the park will play host to an exciting Easter Treasure Hunt for children of all ages. The hunt on Tuesday, April 16 will see children exploring the ‘jewels of the woods’, focusing on the beautiful creations of nature. In addition to the treasure hunt there will be other fun activities such as Easter themed crafts and face painting. There will be two sessions, one at 10am to 12pm and the other at 1pm to 3pm, both cost £4 per child, with face painting at £1.50. Parents must accompany children throughout.

Last but not least, Holt Country Park will be the centre stage for a Woodland Activity Day on Thursday, April 18. For £10 a child, your youngster can leave their parents at home and join our ranger team for a day of fun filled activities in the woods. The children will learn a wide range of useful skills from den building, wildlife identification, survival skills, orienteering and craft making, running from 10am to 2pm.
