Cadbury's 2016 Easter Egg Hunt // Holiday Activities

Friday the 25th and Saturday the 26th of March were two days of chocoliffic fun in Dublin's Merrion Square. The Cadbury's Easter Egg Hunt in aid of Barnados hosted four events over two days and it was a hoppening time! 

There was fun for the whole family including face painting, story telling, crafts, carnival games, magic shows, Victorian games and sack racing too. An Easter Bunny house was on display and Wooly Ward's Mobile Pet Farm weren't to be missed either! The furriest, softest little bunnies were on hand for the kids to hold and pet.

The Easter Egg Trail was the egg-stra special, main attraction where children collected stamps for completing eight activities. The kids had to take a photo in the egg cutouts, pin a tail on a rabbit, count balloons and identify differences in photos, along with a few other rabbit-related stunts. Get all the stamps and redeem them for a massive golden chocolate egg prize!

With all proceeds going directly to Barnados, it was a super day out supporting a very worthy cause. If you're planning to go next year I suggest booking this event early because both dates sold out quickly. A family of four pass cost €20, which was more than worth it in the loads of chocolate you received alone! So glad we could participate this year and already looking forward to 2017's!
