Updated: Apr 12
This upcoming Easter is extra special as it's the first one in a couple of years where we can meet up freely with family and friends with no restrictions. So I've pulled together some brilliant activities to keep your little ones entertained over the Easter Holidays.
There's nothing more exciting for little ones than taking part in a Easter Egg Hunt in the great outdoors, and there's so many to choose from in Norfolk.
