What’s On For Kids In Cardiff and South Wales in Easter 2015

Two weeks off the school run is great, but that also means that you have to find something to entertain your little darlings. To help I have put together a little list of things going on in Cardiff and the South Wales area this Easter that I love the sound of. For other ideas of what to do I have put together a list of local Easter Trails and local Free Easter Activities for Kids too.

National Museum Cardiff

In addition to their Easter Trail they also have a Photography workshop 28 March2 April 2015 – 11am, 1pm & 3pm

Techniquest – Cardiff Bay 

Special Easter events are on over the school holiday period.

Easter at the Sherman

Tailored to keep young people of all ages occupied over the Easter holiday while also offering a retreat for parents, the Sherman Theatre opens its doors once again. Each day they will offer a different activity which may be craft workshops, dance workshops, film making classes, drama workshops or photography lessons, the possibilities are endless! And for the tired legs of mums and dads they have comfy chairs, an excellently stocked café bar and free wifi.
