With the Easter holidays upon us, Hertfordshire County Council have come up with a list of top 5 things to do with your family which won’t break the bank and will keep everyone entertained.

Get creative and make some bird themed Easter crafts this Easter holiday at the Ashridge Estate, and explore the wonderful grounds and woods. Starting from Monday 8 April to Friday 12 April, the event will be available every day from 10am – 4pm. Its £2 per craft – no booking is required.

Make your own hot cross buns at Mill Green Museum on Monday 9 April for £1 only (the price per dough). Two sessions will be held throughout the day so that you can make your delicious treats from 10am-11.30am or at 1.30pm-3.30pm. Places are limited and are based on a first come first served basis.

Pop along to St Albans Cathedral’s free Family Discovery Morning on Thursday 11 April at 10am-12.30pm. With the arrival of spring, the grounds of the cathedral are spectacular at this time of year and thriving with wildlife – you’ll get the opportunity to explore them and create your animal models, as well as make your own Easter hats and colour in some Easter window decorations to take home. You can also taste their special Easter chocolate fountain.

Robots have arrived in Radlett and they need you! Radlett Library is hosting a special CreatorSpace event which gives both adults and children the opportunity to explore some fantastic technology. This event is on Friday 12 April from 2-5pm and it’s free to attend – no booking is required.

Take a trip down memory lane at Abbots Langley Library on Thursday 18 April by exploring the old toys housed in the library’s reminiscence boxes.
