Wild things at Easter, The Lodge, Sandy, April 5-15
It’s a wild day for the family at The Lodge. Follow the Signs of Spring Easter trail and use the clues to work out which bird laid each different egg. Stop and take part at the activity stations along the trail. Try to make a bird nest just like a real bird - it’s harder than you think, and we have hands and fingers.
