Easter Events

Every day throughout the Easter break we will have a range of fun activities for children to engage in. We will be hosting a children's colouring contest over the 2 weeks with prizes for the best creation. We will have feeding times daily at 12pm and 3pm, where kids can interact with the animals by caring for and feeding them. We will also be sharing our top tips for caring for animals and looking after their mental, emotional, physical and social health.

    Plant Farm

    We will also have a plant farm in-store every day throughout the Easter break. The plant farm is a fun and engaging way for children and adults to interact with and enjoy nature. We will have a number of different plant stations in-store including:

    • A sensory "touch and feel" station
    • A "growing" station where you will learn how to grow seeds.
    • A "fun" station where we will use games to showcase the fun you can have in the garden. 

    Our Easter Plant Farms are always a fun family day out, where children are encouraged to engage and interact with nature. Their curious minds are nurtured, and they learn to love nature and the outdoors! Did we mention that our ALL our Easter Events are entirely free? Yes, come along for a FREE fun-filled, family day out and let Horkans help you celebrate Easter.
