Highlights of Springtime Live 2014 – Yorkshire Showground Harrogate
If your kids are anything like mine then the opportunity to get up close with animals is guaranteed to bring a beaming smile to their little faces. At Springtime Live there is a whole section devoted to small animal handling in addition to larger farm animals and ponies to ride. You can also watch actual chicks hatching from their eggs. Kiddie heaven!
Time to get those little fingers stuck into some traditional baking. Cakes, bread pizzas – it’s all happening. Rewarding for the parents and so much fun for the little ones. There’s also a chance to make some chocolate lollies with York’s Chocolate Story. And best of all you don’t need to clean up afterwards…
Lots of art-based activities including making rosettes out of re-cycled materials, making chickens out of coloured paper, painting Easter Eggs, face-painting and art workshops being held in woods.
The star of the show and loved universally by children across the UK. Peppa Pig will be making a personal appearance at Springtime Live, much to the delight of all the little people there. Treasure Hunt
