{Easter in Glasgow - Family Activities}

I've got the kids on Sunday and Monday this Easter weekend and stupidly haven't organised anything for us to do as yet... I was trying so hard to be organised as well. Oops!

Anyway, here's a round-up of some of the activities and things to do that I have come across:

1. There are various free Wizard of Oz themed events taking place at Braehead and Xscape over the Easter holidays including crafts, parachute games, singing and dance workshops. Just follow the yellow brick road...

2. Ikea are also holding free daily workshops (2-3.30pm) where kids can take part in craft activities and there is also going to be a bouncy castle outside the store this weekend.

3. There are also free Funday Sunday activities every Sunday from 11am - 4pm at The Avenue shopping centre in Newton Mearns. 

4. The Bodyworks exhibition at Glasgow Science Centre is now open (being a scientist, I'm a little bit excited about this one!!) - probably more suited to slightly older children though, however there is an area at the Science Centre dedicated to toddlers and there are some short films running at the Imax which look good.

5. Hop on over to Whitelee Windfarm Visitor Centre for more free activities including making bunny ears and wee cute chicks.

6. Cadbury's Easter Egg Trails are on at a number of the National Trust for Scotland venues including Pollok House where there is face painting, games & story telling on Sunday and Monday from 10am. Entry to the house is £5 per adult plus £1 per child for the Easter Egg Trail. Storytelling with Mrs Cotton Tail is an additional £1 per child.

7. I've heard from friends that there are Easter animals (I'm assuming rabbits, chicks etc) at the Glasshouses at Queen's Park that little ones can hold.

What do you have planned this Easter weekend? I'm looking for inspiration!!
