With the Easter Holidays starting today (where has this year gone?!), you may be wondering how to keep the kids entertained. If you are, look no further as we explore the best activities for kids in Elgin City Centre!
A great way to kick off the Easter Holidays is with our Easter Family Fun Day! Our Easter Family Fun Day is on Saturday 31st March in Elgin City Centre. Come on into the centre of Elgin for a day filled with fun for all the family. There’ll be lots of fun and games for the kids, including Crazy Golf and everyone’s favourite, Bubbles the Clown. Join us to have a go at Aerial Acrobatics and Fitness with Vallen Fitness Studio. The kids can also take part in the Great Elgin Easter Egg Hunt and be in with a chance to win some Easter chocolate!
If you want to be more active with the kids during the holidays, then Cooper Park is a great choice! Cooper park is only a short walk from the Town Centre and has parking nearby. With the large open space the park offers you, you could do any kind of sports, football, a game of frisbee or gather your friends and have a game of rounders. Cooper Park also has a playpark that is great for older kids and a baby park that is perfect for the little ones. It also has a skatepark for more adventurous kids.
While you’re at Cooper Park, why not head over to the Library? You can check out a few books to keep the kids entertained if the good old Scottish weather kicks in!
In case the weather does take a turn for the worse, treat the kids to a new movie at Elgin Cinema. The cinema has three viewing screens so there is sure to be a movie that everyone will want to see. Be sure to check out their Facebook Page for their newest releases and times.
If you are wondering where to take the kids out to eat, why not check out our Food and Drink guide at http://elginfoodanddrink.embraceelgin.co.uk/ . The guide shows you all of the restaurants, cafes and takeaways in Elgin City Centre. You can even filter the guide to only show what food you are craving or have them all showing for some delicious inspiration!
Elgin’s rich history dates back centuries, so why not take a tour through time with the Castle to Cathedral to Cashmere heritage experience! You can travel back through 1000 years of Elgin’s history. Look out for the plaques around the City Centre and scan them with a QR Code reader to find out what happened in Elgin at that point in time. Head over to their website for more details!
Continuing with the Elgin history theme Elgin Museum is another great choice. Although the main museum is not open until 28th April, they are running activities for kids of all ages in their side hall! Your kids can discover the mysteries of Cropmarks on April 5th from 1pm-3pm. This activity is free and suitable for ages 8-14. Booking is essential so head over to their website for the booking details. On the unlucky Friday 13th, the museum is holding a drop-in session from 1pm-3pm all about superstitions and lucky charms, suitable for ages 5-14. All these sessions at the museum have free entry, so be sure to take the kids down for some great fun!
Be it history, sports or a movie there is loads to keep the kids entertained in Elgin this Easter Holidays!
