6 Things to do with the Kids on an Easter Rainy Day…
It’ll come as no surprise that the weather is absolutely rubbish over bank holiday weekend and if you don’t fancy braving the rain for a welly walk (see our suggestions for this here) why not have a browse through our top Easter Rainy Day ideas instead?
First up how about some good old fashioned slap stick comedy at the Panto? The Epstein Theatre is currently hosting Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs with an all star cast. Our very own Ricky Tomlinson voices the scouse Magic Mirror alongside Celebrity Big Brother winner James Hill as the very handsome Prince Charming! There’s a whole host of wonderful songs, dazzling choreography and a modern twist to keep everyone guessing. Tickets are available at www.epsteinliverpool.co.uk and the show runs until April 6th.
Also running over the Easter break is Peter Pan at the Theatre Royal, St Helens. Jam packed with more home grown talent, Radio City’s Claire Simmo sparkles as Tinkerbell and all singing, all dancing Ray Quinn takes up the role of Peter on this fantastic adventure full of Pirates, Fairies, Mermaids, Lost Boys, Indians and of course one tick-tocking crocodile. Tickets are available from https://sthelenstheatreroyal.
ticketsolve.com/ and the Panto runs until April 17th.
Admittedly its not easy to get the kids to sit down for too long so how about a little more rough and tumble? Newly opened Mattel Play! at the Albert Dock invites your little ones to roam around the 13000 square feet interactive zones and burn off some steam while learning all at the same time. From construction to fire trucks all under one roof your little ones are bound to have a blast here. To book a play session check out www.mattelplayliverpool.com
If you’re on the Wirral and appreciate a good quality hot chocolate, head on down to Bubbles World of Play at Marine Point New Brighton. With a brand-spanking new under 5 area, complete with soft play coffee shop, a huge play frame for the older kids, free arcade games and a tasty menu of snacks, there’s so much to do here on a rainy day. Read our recent review and more info here.
Last but by no means least, Croxteth Park is offering an afternoon tea like no other this Easter weekend. Follow the White Rabbit and Alice to the Mad Hatters Tea Party at historic Croxteth Hall for a party to remember. Booking is essential and parties run at 1pm and 3pm Sunday and Monday.

Oh and something to give you a heads about. For the creative kids, Constellations have got a huge treat in store for you. The Square Pegs Blooming Spring Bash takes place on April 9th this year and will knock your sticking and glueing socks off! From mask-creating to music-making, body-grooving to treasure-hunting, whatever your creative preference, once again the Pegs have it covered.
