With a fun range of Easter egg-tivities, singing birds, and springtime flowers, you can’t beat WWT London Wetland Centre as the best place to be during the Easter holidays.

From ducks to dragonflies, egg laying is a vital part of many animals ’ life cycles as they scramble to create the next generation.

In their Easter egg hunt you’ll discover the nesting and spawning secrets of wetland wildlife as you follow the springtime trail. Crack the clues and you’ll be rewarded with a prize.

And why shell out your entire nest egg for a Fabergé ornament when you can hatch your own design? Get creative with the egg painting team and take home your own personalised Easter ornament. For fledgling egg-gineers, there’s the “Scrap Cheep Challenge”! Can you create a vehicle from recycled materials to safely transport an egg or chick?

Then there are the Easter games: a life-cycle relay race, egg and spoon race and egg rolling.

Events organiser Jamie Wyver said “The Easter holidays are a wonderful time to enjoy watching signs of new life at WWT London Wetland Centre. As well as taking part in our egg-tivities why not take a stroll around the reserve to spot spring flowers and listen out for songbirds.”

If the weather isn’t “Sunny side up” don’t worry, the egg-tivities will move indoors. No need to brood about getting chilly: the Centre has rooms for crafts and a heated Yurt so you’ll be as snug as a fluffy chick in a nest. So take your brood ova to London Wetland Centre and join in the fun.

As well as all the egg-cellent egg-tivities, from 3-5 April join in with the Centre’s Life Under the Surface project. The friendly Froglife team will be on site to help you make amazing pond creature models to create a pond scene sculpture with aquatic animals and plants. Come back on 6 April to see your model in the completed giant pond!
